“Brian will make up his own mind. I would not like to sway him one way over the other,” he said.
“The bottom line is you would love to have the guy around forever wouldn’t you? But if you look at the performance he put in, that is not easy on the body.
“Huge credit to him, given the amount of game time he has had, to come out and give such an international class performance like he did.
“It is wrong to say it doesn’t surprise you, as normally you should not be able to pull out a performance like that with the amount of game time he has under his belt. With Brian it is just a privilege to be working with him.”
