Billy Twelvetrees spoke to Nick Heath this week for the RFU Podcast, ahead of the Saxons’ Churchill Cup final at the weekend.
The Tigers back has caught the eye this season, and impressed in his Saxons’ outings so far, and some have suggested that he could get the call-up for Martin Johnson’s Rugby World Cup squad.
He wasn’t so sure: “This season, I was just looking to get into the first team for Leicester, to play week-in week-out for them.”
“Getting the call-up to the Saxons was a nice little surprise…and it’s been good to get some game time with some new players. You just take it as it goes and I’d rather just concentrate on Leicester and pre-season.”
As you’d expect, the guys are focused on the next game, rather than the preliminary RWC squad announcement on Monday, and it sounds like they are looking forward to it.
