Does anything compare to winning the World Cup?
Do you follow / participate in any other sport? If so what?
who is the best prop you have scrummed against?
What kind of differences are there in preparation (both physical and mental) for matches against different opposition? Would the England squad, for instance, prepare in a totally different way if they were facing the Springboks, as opposed to the All Blacks or the wallabies? Or do you just prepare in the same way, regardless of who your opponents are?

Do you think players are playing too much rugby?
