For the quarter final of the RWC I was invited to New Zealand and was incredibly fortunate to be exposed to the backroom staff with the England Team.
Although the team has gotten an absolute hammering in the press for a few stories, I came away from the experience with nothing but respect and total admiration for everyone involved in the team.
All the players were professional in their preparation while I was there and the support staff was leaving no stone unturned in their search to make this team the best prepared ever.
Living in this environment, even though it was for a few days really ignited a drive in me to be part of this type of experience at some stage in my professional career.
Truly incredible experience and I would like to thank Jonny Bloomfield for the invite, and a big thanks to everyone in the support staff who made my experience so memorable I am indebted to you guys.
