|Leonard's words of advice|
|Around the Academy:
If there's one rugby player who's been there, done that and bought the T-shirt, it's Jason Leonard.
Jason takes the Academy behind the scenes of an England half-time team talk - and tells us how to handle the critics in the newspapers.
Half-time is an important time for the players to recover, regroup and discuss tactics for the second half.
Every England game, every player is psyched up, buzzing from the first half.
But the coaching staff are very good at taking a step back and telling us "you're doing this well, but you're not doing that so well".
It's very professional, there are no emotional feelings coming through.
If people are ranting and raving, you don't get your point across.
And at the highest level, you only need to remind the players about two or three important bits of information.
You have to remember everything on the pitch is flying past you at 100mph.
So it's important you don't overload the players and give them complicated instructions, otherwise they won't understand the information they're being given.
Our coaching staff, especially coach Clive Woodward, are very good at that.
