“When they come out against Australia on Saturday they’ll have a victory under their belts and another week of training together; I think people will be in for a surprise.”
“I was at the Stoop to watch Australia and New Zealand and it was an amazing game; fast, physical and brutal. The atmosphere at the ground was great, I was here with Rob Purdham and some of the other Harlequins boys and it was great to all watch a game of rugby together.”
McCarthy-Scarsbrook was called up to the England Elite Training squad earlier this year and was in the England training squad ahead of the 4 Nations. Although he played in England’s warm up game against Wales, he was not included in the final 4 Nations line-up.
“Of course it was disappointing not being selected to go further, especially as I thought I had a pretty good season. I went into the Wales game really fired up to prove what I could do and it was great to score that try.
“I’ll keep giving it my all and hopefully I’ll get my chance with England again.
