VIDEO – New Zealand tour player diary 2 #O2InsideLine

30 May 2014

  • Chris Robshaw, Dave Ward, Rob Webber and Dave Attwood on the player diary
  • Informal chat and exclusive footage from England's tour to New Zealand

In the second of RFUtv's New Zealand tour Player Diaries, England quartet Chris Robshaw, Dave Ward, Rob Webber and Dave Attwood bring you up-to-date with what's been happening at the start of the trip.

England captain Robshaw introduces his Harlequins and now England teammate Ward before the team depart the Land of the Long White Cloud, with the conversation inevitably turning to the 30-hour journey.

Find out what they’ll be doing on the flight and who will be doing an hour of stretching in the aisles, before Robshaw recalls his previous trip to New Zealand for a non-cap game in Napier. 

Webber and Attwood chat from the team hotel in Auckland about the first two days Down Under, with acclimatising to the time difference and being comfortable in their new surroundings being the priority – even if that means slippers and socks.

The on-tour roommates then discuss the delights of adaptors, 2:30am conversations in the dark and their new international colleague Nathan Catt.
