What are they saying?

England Head coach Ian Vass:

The togetherness in those final moments (against South Africa in the semi-final) just shows that if we do certain things right, we’ll get an opportunity, and then it’s just about taking it.

Reaching the final is a massive achievement bearing in mind the selection and injury issues we’ve had going into and during the tournament.

England player Dan Atkins:

It's an amazing opportunity. I got a medal last year but didn’t play in the final so to play on Sunday would be incredible.

I’m just trying to take it all in, enjoy the experience and do as well as possible
