England back rower Tom Curry says he is focused on doing what Eddie Jones wants from his openside flanker ahead of the tour to South Africa.
The Sale Sharks man put in another impressive performance in the Quilter Cup loss to the Barbarians, with Jones singling him out for praise.
It was his first outing in an England shirt since his playing against Argentina last summer and Curry says he is thinking of how to help his teammates rather than his individual performance.
“I’m not really fussed, I just do what’s best for the team," said the 19-year-old.
“Eddie is clear in what he wants from the seven, I just try to fit into the seven role in the team structure and against the Barbarians it worked out pretty well.
“He says about making sure you have speed at the breakdown, link play and just work as hard as possible – the seven has to be the hardest working player in the team so I’m just going around busting a gut."
An exciting squad
England's squad for South Africa will convene this week after the domestic season ended with Saracens beating Exeter in the Aviva Premiership final.
Curry beleives that the arrival of the players from those two sides will give added impetus ahead of the first Test against the Springboks on Saturday 9 June. "You just want to match them physically first."
“The Baa Baas game was a stepping stone," he added. "We’ve only had the guys in for two weeks and some of them are brand new to the camp, so once we all get together it’s going to be an exciting squad and a great experience."
Having played against the Springboks at age grade level for England, Curry is aware of the physical challenge that awaits them this summer.
"At every age group the South Africans just want to smash the English so we’re pretty prepared. From Under 18s, Under 20s to the first team, you know what the they’re going to bring so you just want to match them physically first.
