THE L IONS LOWDOWN: FARRE L L

Rugby World - - C O N O R M U R R AY - Ex­pe­ri­enced Dual-coder Far­rell

BEST LIONS MEM­ORY

It has to be the third Test in 2013. It was one-all and came down to the last match, so to win on such an oc­ca­sion was fan­tas­tic. The Lions hadn’t won (a se­ries) for quite a while, so there was a bit of pres­sure; we felt we had a duty to kick that on for the fu­ture as well.

TOUR ESSEN­TIAL

Ear­phones. There’s 80- odd of us all to­gether and we get on very well, but from time to time you want to have your own space and own think­ing time – that’s where the ear­phones come into play.

ONE CHANGE YOU’D MAKE TO THE LIONS

I don’t like whing­ing – it is what it is and you know that be­fore tak­ing on the job – but it doesn’t make sense to come on the Wed­nes­day and play on Satur­day. To give the lads the best shot at per­form­ing, with a new side com­ing to­gether, you need prepa­ra­tion time.
