"Having that small bit of involvement, in terms of that management company, I'd say he would be really good at that."

His current form

"The two times I've come back playing, I think a big part of playing better has been patience for me."

Joe Schmidt

"He can spot weaknesses in opposition teams but what has most impressed people is the weaknesses he can spot in us."

Wearing any jersey at next World Cup

"Definitely. I haven't been to one yet."
