"He was always going to start at 10 in this game. He is someone whose progress I have followed closely, and I think he has grown up a lot, both as a player and as a person.
"He has got self-confidence, and I am really pleased for him.
"He is in a very competitive position at 10. Jonny Wilkinson and Toby Flood are not poor players and Shane needs to build his overall game.
"But he has got that innate ability to develop and finish things when gaps open up."
