Ben Youngs, the Leicester and England scrum-half, told that the new coaches at country and club have refreshed his career. The twenty six year old played an important role in England’s Six Nations Grand Slam days under the guidance of Eddie Jones.
He is also flourishing under the guardianship of Aaron Mauger, the Tigers head coach. Speaking BBC Radio 5, Youngs told that with Mauge and Eddie, he feels that he could play like he did when he first came on the scene for Leicester, when he did not fear what might happen if it went wrong.
On Sunday, speaking before Leicester’s Champions Cup quarter-final against Stade Francais at the Welford Road, he said that he felt that he has got that back now. This is a new lease of life – he has been given confidence by both coaches to express myself. This has offered him an all new motivation, and he felt that he is being challenged and tested each day.
After England’s departure from the World Cup group stage, Youngs was one of select senior players under force for his international spot. He admitted that he had to prove his worth to Jones. Youngs, who has fifty-seven caps for England and toured with the Irish and Brit Lions in 2013, told that to begin with he was probably testing him out of a little bit. He is very respectful to Eddie. He gives a huge belief both within the squad and individually, and he really enjoys being guided by him.
