On The Record

“I am a lot more experienced than I was if you were talking to me this time last year going into the Wales game. In the grand scheme of things, I still have a lot to learn. That is natural for a 24-year-old tighthead.“It is dangerous if you start thinking you have this whole thing figured out because I definitely don’t. With the experience – I still don’t have a massive amount of it compared to some of the lads – it breeds confidence that you know how it works.”
