“We have had a great preparation so far this week, said Hansen.

 “We have put a full stop on last weekend’s performance and have been slowly building throughout the week to produce another game we can all be proud of.

 “Though we have many times over the years, we have only played three times at the Rugby World Cup and these cup finals matches are totally different. They have a ‘live-or-die’ nature to them and both teams will be desperate to advance.

 “As a group we are really looking forward to this challenge. It will require a massive amount of intensity and composure and accurate skill execution.

 “The team has high expectation of itself and enjoys the big occasion.”
