1 [Talking about northern hemisphere rugby] The northern hemisphere game is a bit different, they tend to be a lot more physical in terms of throwing numbers in at once. You have to adapt as the game goes on, try to figure out what they are doing. In the Super 12 I felt like I was getting taken out of play and that got quite frustrating at times. But you just have to find ways to counter it.
2 [Talking about the 2005 Lions Tour] Rugby's not one on one: you can't just chase around after your opposite number. We need a collective approach and that's where the Lions work quite well. They seem to hit in numbers and that's where they can stuff your ball up.
3 [on the eye gouge incident] I got poked in the eye or something. I don't know if it was intentional ... It was pretty quick. When the final whistle went, I had no damage, it was fine. I am just happy we won.
4 [Talking about test rugby] The big thing is that you learn your lessons,the nature of Test rugby is that you have got to do everything as well as you can and that's what we didn't do last week. So hopefully we are better for it."
5 [on being unable to play rugby because of injury] At the time I was just hoping to get back because we were playing some pretty good rugby and I wanted to be part of it. But I feel pretty fresh and ready to get stuck into it. I guess there is always a wee silver lining in these things."
