Players are mentally ready: Byrne

Swire Shipping Fijian Drua Head Coach Mick Byrne says players are mentally prepared to put on a strong performance against Moana Pasifika in Super Rugby Pacific on Saturday.
 
Byrne said it was tough for players to return from the loss to Highlanders and then coming up from the disappointing 67-5 loss to the Hurricanes last week.
 
But Byrne says the players got their mental strength in place and are focused for the battle of the Pacific debutants this weekend.
 
"We have our talent, skill and ability to play."
 
"It just comes down to regrouping ourselves mentally and preparing ourselves."
 
"It was a failure. It wasn’t a fairly big week."
 
"It was a messy week for our players who hadn't been home for five months."
 
"That was a really big high and then to come back into the grind, which they can sometimes feel."
 
"Being able to have a look back on that time and seeing the things that we didn't get right last week mentally, in ourselves as players that we can sit down now and really prepare for that, and I think that's been the case, they've come into camp we've given them today off to get the recovery right and medical checks right."
 
"Already the boys sitting around the computers you can say real determination to fix what happened last week."
 
"The key there is their preparation and the mind-set to get themselves ready for the weekend and that's been positive since we got back into camp."
 
The match kicks off at 4.35pm at CommBank Stadium in Sydney.
