Catt uses All Blacks as inspiration
Skills coach Mike Catt has revealed he wants England to learn from the ruthlessness shown recently by New Zealand.
Catt says the All Blacks remain the bench mark for other nations and he admits their attacking style is something England can learn a lot from, ahead of the upcoming autumn internationals. "You look at New Zealand and the way they get one opportunity and score it," Catt said. "New Zealand are very good and accurate at what they do. They are on the front foot a lot of the time and they can bring the big guys into the game. "Everybody is going to want to get to that situation. It is how we get there and how long it takes us to get there." Catt believes confidence is key and then taking advantage of attacking situations when they present themselves in games for England. "I am not saying it's not there (in the English players) but we have got to get to that, having that belief we can do it," he added. "It is about seeing the opportunities and understanding it. That is my role. "From an attacking point of view, I want to see speed of the ball and movement of the ball."
