England believe moving to a temporary training base in the mountain resort town of Queenstown offers the perfect chance to reinvigorate their squad.
Situated in the Southern Lakes district in the south-west of New Zealand's south island and with a mountain range boasting Ben Lomond, whose summit stands at more than 1,700 metres, Queenstown proclaims itself to be the 'Adventure Capital of the World'.
Among the activities on offer are white water rafting, skiing, snowboarding and paragliding although the England management were coy on whether players would be allowed to go bungee-jumping just days before their second World Cup match against Georgia.
Sunday's fixture, as was the case with Saturday's opening 13-9 win against Argentina, will take place in Dunedin, nearly 300 miles from Queenstown.
But England forwards coach John Wells said it was worth uprooting the squad.
"We are in Dunedin for a long time, relatively speaking, and I think it's just a case of giving the guys a break," Wells explained.
"It's an opportunity to get some really good training in a different location but also for the guys to freshen up.
"We've been together since the beginning of June and the guys haven't had a lot of time to enjoy each other's company. This is an opportunity for them to do a few things and actually be together."
England players were out in a local bar on Sunday to watch South Africa, the side that beat them in the 2007 final, begin the defence of their title with a thrilling 17-16 win over Wales.
This was all in line with England manager Martin Johnson's policy of treating his players like grown-ups and trusting them not to go overboard in their socialising, a stance he outlined before the squad left for New Zealand.
"When I started playing rugby at senior level you were dealing with blokes," Johnson said last month.
"They treated us like adults and there is no reason to change that now they are professionals and things are far more organized in the game.
"They are there to make sensible decisions -- if I can't trust them, there is a simple choice for us to make."
However, bungee-jumping did appear to be off-limits, with England defence coach Mike Ford saying Sunday: "There are certain restrictions."
