On how the team responded to defeat on Saturday
It’s always difficult – you put so much time and effort and belief into that first performance. It is very disappointing but everyone has experienced losses before and you have to forget about them, let them go and concentrate massively on tomorrow night’s game, the test and thereafter. It’s the nature of sport you get on with it – there’s a great buzz, there’s a great attitude, everyone is professional and you expect nothing less. It’s great to be amongst the guys

On the coaching set up
With Geech everything he does say you listen to – he’s the coach and he’s got great guys around him who have been there and done that whether in their playing or coaching careers. There’s a lot of guys to take experience from and there’s a few guys who have been on tours before so if you need any advice there are plenty of people around you but we are all professional – we all know why we are here, what we are here for and we are here to win in a massive sporting country. We are all focused on that and there is a great attitude amongst the guys and it’s great to be a part of it.
