"You still need to work on those small connections inside the group, but we've got that silver fern on our chest, so we're still representing New Zealand, Aotearoa". This is my third game I have been involved and this is my opportunity. It's really lifted the team and helped bring them together as a unit.

"I can't say it'd be any more special than playing the Springboks or Wallabies or anyone else, so if I get that opportunity I'd be very happy and proud of the achievement - but I can't say it'd mean anything more than a rugby game".
