Although New Zealand have since won four consecutive encounters with England, McCaw insists his side will not allow complacency to set in as they know what their opponents can produce.
And the flanker, who played the first two tests of the All Blacks' 3-0 series victory over the Lions in 2005, is determined not to have his off-season ruined by Stuart Lancaster's side once more.
"Two years ago we got tripped up at Twickenham," said McCaw.
"We realise if we aren't on the job and a team gets their tails up it doesn't take much to swing back the other way.
"England are a good team, they believe in themselves and that day we got under pressure and we didn't cope with it very well for a whole number of reasons.
"I'm pretty sure the guys are motivated not to let that happen again."
