The intensity of our training yesterday was the best it has ever been. There was a little bit of a feeling of circling the wagons and not allow anything to affect the environment. It's tough. We have been together for a long time. It's unfortunate that he (Howley) has to go through this.
He's been a great servant. He's a good man and a good friend. It's sad to see someone have to go through it. We definitely can't wait to get going (against Georgia on Monday). We need to start talking about rugby again. The sooner this first game starts... once it (the World Cup) does kick off tomorrow night, then there is a full weekend of rugby. That will get the ball rolling, and then the days and weeks will pass by.
