PRESS CONFERENCE QUOTES: GEORDAN MURPHY
- ON EXPECTATIONS AGAINST ROMANIA -
"It's obviously a very important game for us. We were very disappointed with our performance last week against Australia, and this is an opportunity for us to get a win. We've a chance to get things right, get ourselves going again and get back on the right track.
"From past experiences, we know they're a very difficult side to build up a lead on. They play a good style of rugby, and they're improving all the time.
"So, first and foremost, we're going to have to do our basics very well. Certain people are expecting a lot of points from us but what's most important for us is getting the win."
- ON HIS OPPOSITE NUMBER CATALIN FERCU -
"We know he's (Fercu's) a very young guy (at 19-years-old), and we've heard he's very quick and very elusive.
"They're putting a lot of responsibility on his shoulders so we're expecting him to be a very good player."
