England – England and Northhampton flanker Lewis Ludlam opens up about ‘missing the boys’, dealing with negativity, and what’s been happening behind the scenes to ensure England comes back with ‘better players than before’.
The 24-year-old revealed that being home has made him realise he ‘probably takes for granted’ the closeness of the squad and seeing his team-mates every day.
“I really enjoy being with the boys all year round, this period has made me realise that”, said Ludlam.
“It’s the longest I’ve ever been away from them and it’s definitely something I’m missing.”
Lockdown has meant that players had to become their own boss when it comes to fitness schedules and train from the confines of their own homes.
“Zoom calls have been a good way to train together and help keep us motivated,” added Ludlam.
