LONDON, ENGLAND - MAY 16: Joe Maddock of Saracens tries to breaks with the ball during the match between Saracens and South African Barbarians at Honourable Artillery Company on May 16, 2013 in London, England.
We'll need to summon the same kind of emotion, the same intensity, as we brought to the game at Saracens
We know we've got to find that again if we're going to have a chance against Leicester. We're got one British Lion and they've got six. They've got the experience of playing in a lot of Premiership finals and they've been unbeaten in the league since February. Everything is in Leicester's favour, so we've got to produce another performance like the Saracens one to have a chance.
Before the Twickenham game against Saracens I felt fabulous. Before this game I didn't feel amazing. Even just before the game, I missed a couple and my head started to go. I was thinking: 'Hold on, why did that go like that?'More quotes »
