As England Under 20s prepare to face their South African counterparts in the final of the Junior World Championship on Friday, back rower Ross Moriarty took time out to chat to the club website and preview the big game.
"In the final, we have to do the same again, match them physically, run them around and then earn the right to express ourselves and run in some tries."
With Ireland defeated in the semi-final, the English set up a meeting with the Springboks after they overcame hosts New Zealand, and Moriarty knows that the match is a huge one for the holders, and the task ahead is an exciting one.
"I'm really looking forward to the game and the final. It's a huge game for me and for it to be at Eden Park, one of the best stadiums in the world, it doesn't get any better."
"It's going to be a big physical game against the Springboks, and we know that. They will be looking at their kicking game a lot so we have to make sure we get it right on the pitch.
"They picked a squad for the conditions, big abrasive lads for the rain but the conditions out here have been alright. It's obvious they will look to physically dominate teams but we do have to step up and match them in that department and I know that we definitely can.
"The game in last year's tournament was tough, we matched them physically and we know, had we had an extra few minutes, we would have won that game."
The game against Ireland saw the English blow their Six Nations' opponents away in the opening half to reach the semi-final, in a performance that Moriarty was thrilled with.
With tour mates, Henry Purdy and Callum Braley heading back with Moriarty to begin their Gloucester careers at the end of the tournament, the back rower is really excited about the new faces in the squad.
"Both players are going to have big parts to play next season at the club, I know Callum from Hartpury so it's good to be back with him, and then I get on really well with Henry. He's a super player and both lads, along with Billy will fit in really well in an exciting squad next year."
