Gloucester wing Jonny May is determined to give more to the cause this campaign as he looks to lift the Cherry and Whites up the table.
Gloucester and England wing Jonny May is keen to give more to the cause in the new season as he looks to lift the Cherry and Whites up the table.
The 24-year-old, who started in all of England's Six Nations games and went on tour to New Zealand, had a busy year for club and country.
However now that he's rested, May wants more.
“It was a long season with the end being particularly intense, so my body definitely needs rest to get back to being 100 per cent,” he told the Gloucester Citizen.
“Looking back, it was a great season for me but I definitely have more to give, for Gloucester and for England.
“I know what I need to work on and I'm determined to be even better this year.
“I was a little disappointed to only play in the first Test but the coaches were clear that it wasn't a case of being dropped, it was a case of needing to see what others could do.
“They wanted to look at Manu (Tuilagi) and Ashy (Chris Ashton) on the wing.”
He added: “Come Autumn, they will pick on form and I'm feeling positive about my rugby and the progress I made.
“I pushed hard to get my starting place and I played six games in a row for England.
“It's like having a second club and I feel like a valued member of the squad now, but I still feel I haven't shown my best yet. The kind of person I am, I want more.”
