Phil Davies - reaction to Heineken Cup draw

12th June 2012

Following this morning's announcement that the Blues will play Toulon, Sale and Montpellier, Phil Davies shares his thoughts on the draw

Speaking at the Vale training centre, Davies said,

“It’s quite a tough draw with two French teams but it’s also quite exciting.”

“We are obviously playing Sale Sharks also, so there are lots of connections with Andy Powell at Sale and Gethin Jenkins at Toulon.”

“We spoke to the lads this morning and they are quite excited.”

“It’s tough but a great opportunity for us to go out and perform against Europe’s best.”

“Whatever game you play, or competition you’re in, you want to be as successful as you can.”

“We want to test ourselves and get out of the pool.”

“As I know from previous experience it’s not easy but once you are there they are all one off games.”

“We are a group in transition as everybody knows, but there are a lot of young quality players here who are eager to impress.”
