Monye eyes international renaissance
England forgotten man Ugo Monye is determined to reignite his international career in South Africa this summer.
The winger is returning to the scene of his greatest rugby moment, scoring the winning try in a British and Irish Lions Test victory on South African soil. Monye has endured three frustrating years since the 2009 tour but is feeling confident and has his sights set on relaunching his England career after being selected in Stuart Lancaster's touring party - his last England appearance came in 2010. "This is a great opportunity for me to open a new chapter. I would like to start up where I left off. Hopefully I can add something to this new-look England team," said Monye. The 29-year-old turned down a move French club rugby to sign a new three-year contract with Harlequins and says that proves what England means to him. "What was important to me was being part of Harlequins and England. It was a big statement that I wanted to stay in the country because I feel I have something to offer," added Monye. "I feel I have shown that this season. Now I want to back that up in South Africa."
