Quotes from Director of Rugby, Jake White.

“In a lot of ways, it’s probably a good thing for us, a boost that they beat us. Had we beaten them comfortably perhaps we would have gone into this game thinking it was a fait accompli. In a lot of ways we get to have another crack at them.

“There is no doubt that this is a team that can score tries, they have the players. When they are on song, they can perform – they beat some big teams this year. But, in saying that, the nice thing we have in our favour is that we lost to them.

“I know I don’t have to talk much this week. The players will know it’s not just going to happen. I think in a lot of ways, we were on a high in that pool game back in April, about to tour, and we ended up losing that game. We’ll be a lot more focussed this week.”
