2014 QBE Internationals player diary 4 #O2InsideLine

  • Ben Youngs, George Ford and Dylan Hartley on the player diary
  • Informal chat and exclusive footage from inside the England camp

In the fourth of England Rugby TV’s QBE Internationals player diaries, England trio Ben Youngs, George Ford and Dylan Hartley bring you up-to-date with what's been happening at the end of the New Zealand Test week.

Stuart Lancaster’s side are building up a massive game against the world champions so we bring you a bumper edition with players’ personalities and pre-game insights 24-hours before kick-off.

Youngs is on sparkling form with former Leicester Tigers Ford, chatting about their close relationship on and off the field – despite a difference of opinion on the first time they actually played together.

The half-back pair talk about their hopes of combining off the bench against the All Blacks before Youngs talks about recently becoming a father and Ford recalls a 45-0 early season victory for his Bath Rugby side.

Hartley sets a serious tone from the captain’s run at Twickenham Stadium, talking about his emotions at various stages in the build-up to the game.

The Northampton Saints hooker, who as a committed Movember supporter is sporting the start of something on his top lip, finishes by discussing the others involved in the charity campaign and what he will do the evening before a game.
