“There are no winners, only survivors” – Frank Gifford (American Football Hall of Fame)
Gifford was talking about pro American Football, but the same applies to rugby. We have all played in those games when I given every last effort and almost collapse at the end of the game. We have gone through the pain barrier and emerged victorious. Nothing matches the feeling we get when we pass the test in these encounters. But in order to do that we need to both physically and mentally tough. That doesn’t just happen it comes from years of commitment and pushing our limits. It starts in training and then manifests itself in how we play.
I will not quit. I will survive. I am a winner.
