Following the Junior World Championship final victory over South Africa, Billy Burns spoke to rfu.com about a special moment in his young career.
Burns contributed eight points from the tee, and played a key role in implementing the English game plan, which was crucial in the end as England earned the narrow 21-20 win to secure a second successive title.
"The South Africans came at us hard and it could have gone either way but we showed that character.
"Full credit to the forwards to dig it out at the end for five or six minutes. It was an outstanding effort and we have worked hard all campaign and to come out with a gold medal in the end is a massive achievement.
"It was one of our big strengths. We always believe in ourselves and no matter what position we are in on the field we feel we can find a way out of it.
The game was a huge battle up front at Eden Park, and Burns continued to praise the hard work done by the English forwards.
"In the first half the set piece didn't go as planned and us backs weren't as sharp and to come out in the second half and show the character that we did and grind out that win was a real good achievement.
"It was six minutes the forwards held onto the ball there in the end and all credit to them for the discipline the whole way.
"We knew we couldn't give any penalties away because to be fair Handre Pollard was kicking outstanding, and we knew that if we gave him opportunities he was going to take it so all credit goes to the forwards they really got us out of that one.
"We won it last year but it was a different squad so we had no title to our name so to come out here to win it back-to-back in the southern hemisphere was a massive achievement and one we will enjoy for sure."
Speaking to the local media this week, David Humphreys insisted that Gloucester are looking forward to kicking off the new European Rugby Challenge Cup against Brive on Thursday evening, although an unfamiliar opponent and a five day turnaround will pose a challenge.
Director of Rugby David Humphreys felt that his Gloucester side put themselves in a position to put Saracens under real pressure at Allianz Park on Saturday, praising his team's commitment and defence, while admitting that a lack of accuracy hit their chances in the second half.
Speaking to the local media at Allianz Park, Tom Savage was disappointed after the defeat at Saracens, but claimed Gloucester did plenty of good things and could've taken more than a losing bonus point.
In case you missed it, there was plenty of activity on the official Gloucester Rugby website following the 55-0 European Rugby Challenge Cup win over CA Brive, including a number of post match video interviews.
The Cherry and Whites ran in six tries in beating CA Brive 55-0 on Thursday night. An emphatic second half performance saw the hosts run in five tries to get the European campaign off to a flying start.
Gloucester took their time to go through the gears in Thursday's European Rugby Challenge Cup opener but turned on the style in the second half to emerge 55-0 winners and get their campaign off to a winning start.
