According to, Saturday's test could have been a nightmare for rookie Valentine Holmes, with nerves leading to a big hiccup before kick-off.

“He forgot his boots as we left the hotel so someone had to run back in and grab them,” Inglis said, reported

“That’s just the nerves in him but the nerves were long gone by the time warm up finished.

“Val’s a talented kid. He’s skilful. You’ve seen what he’s done over the last two years and I think he’s really put his mark on that jersey.”
