Justin Tipuric’s performance against France is also denying Warburton a start however McBryde is adamant the situation can be used to the benefit of the Cardiff back-row.
“It will be interesting to see how Sam reacts on the field,” said McBryde. “You can look at it as a positive.
“When you are away from the coalface you are able to weigh up everything and put things in the right boxes.
“I am sure Sam is able to do that. You let somebody else take the responsibility and the burden.
“You can look at your own game in a bit more detail; think about where you are going wrong and what you need to improve on. Then, it is a matter of executing that.
“I’m sure that Sam will benefit from it and will come back a stronger and a better player.”
