After the new Super Rugby video surprised everyone with the new direction it took - focussing on the players' emotive connection to the game, and what rugby means to them - we got big ol' Dirty Dane Coles on the phone to talk us through it.
Talking about being honest and raw on camera, the All Blacks and Hurricanes hooker dropped a few gems on us that everyone should note down.
It's all good to be emotional and show how you feel...you can still be that tough guy and take someone's head off as well.
Beautifully said mate. Also this:
It doesn't make you less of a man showing your emotions, showing what you care about and how you feel.
Good on ya Dane.
