Its a good thing that we won in Chicago; I didnt want to keep going on having never won against them.Hopefully it removes the mystique a little. But while we know that it was a great performance by us, I think they did have an off day as well.There were a lot of uncharacteristic mistakes from them in Chicago and we know it wont be the same this week. Its going to be a completely different challenge this weekend.I think how we did so well in the last game was pressure: we built it through getting pressure off their lineout, getting up off their line, making them knock the ball on and putting that little bit of doubt in their head.I think that doubt and thaat seed is sown now.dddddddddddd They know were a good team and we can get in their face.

Hes got the physical attributes to become a superstar, and the more confidence he gets in himself off the pitch and the more he starts to lead people its going to come out more in his game, and I think youre slowly starting to see that.Hopefully that continues: because when youve got someone playing that well beside you its pretty easy almost to just jump on a free ride off him.
