Walsh: We're focused on ourselves

St Kilda's Tommy Walsh
Tommy Walsh says that the Irish camp are focusing on themselves rather than what Australia will do in tomorrow's second Test in the Gold Coast.
Anthony Tohill's team carry a commanding 44-point lead into the game and while many feel that the Aussies will be adopting a more physical approach than last week, Walsh says that the visitors will be well able to match their opponents in that department.
"We're definitely expecting them to up the intensity but we're not as much worried about them as we are ourselves," Walsh told the Irish Daily Mirror.
"I think if we can go into the game and control our own intensity and stick to our game plan, I think we can win the game again. It doesn't matter the cushion we have, we want to win the game and win the series."
After the series ends tomorrow, the Kerins O'Rahillys man will be switching his focus back to the AFL as he looks to break into the Sydney Swans' first team after completing his transfer from the Melbourne club St Kilda.
"It's a tough game. Any AFL team is tough to break into," he stated. "My goal is to play and hopefully I can do that next year at the Swans. I'm very excited to go there and get into the pre-season."
