SOUNDBITE: (English) Mike Brown, England full back (on playing Ireland) "I think the outcome's always important. We want to win every match that we play but first and foremost we need to focus on our performance. I think if we get that right, the result takes care of itself. We believe that we get the right performance in, we can beat any team in the world and I think we've shown that over the last few years so it's important to get that right first." SOUNDBITE: (English) Mike Brown, England full back (on analysing the defeat in France last time out) "I don't think there was many wrongs. It was a couple, but it was key wrongs that put us on the back foot straight from the off. I think discipline was the main one that we picked out, that gave them easy points, easy field territory which put us on the back foot and then we were always chasing the game." SOUNDBITE: (English) Mike Brown, England full back (on whether Ireland's defeat to Wales last time out will change their approach) "No, I don't think so. They've obviously got a strong pack, strong mauling game, and their kicking game will be massively important for them so for me and the back three, it's important for us to nullify that and deal with their kicking game as best we can." SOUNDBITE: (English) Mike Brown, England full back (on the selection for the final 31-man squad) "I think as a squad our team cohesion has always been great, but I think over the last few weeks it's obviously been massively tense and everyone's been on edge so everyone's a bit more calm this week. It has been tough and it's tough for you to see your mates go home that have worked so hard trying to put themselves in the best position, that's tough. But I think coming in Sunday, it was a sort of clean slate, everyone just getting back to it and we're that one step closer to the World Cup that we're all striving to do."
