What they said:
“It’s my first time in New Zealand and it was a bit of a shock to my system to see the straight boundaries. Every stadium has its own dynamics that we have to get used to so we will put the training in to try and hit certain areas. It does change it a little bit but you have to adapt to every field that you play on.” – Chris Morris.
“With South Africa being the powerhouse they have been, they’ll be good. It’s an awesome opportunity, these guys are all household names.” – Tom Bruce.
