Hi I'm Natalie and welcome to Talking Sport.
Today we are talking about rugby.
The 2011 Rugby Union World Cup will be taking place in New
Zealand in September.
The English rugby team are playing practice matches before they
play Argentina in the World cup.
Let's hear from English rugby player Mike Tindall.
What does he hope from these practice games?
Listen out for the phrases ‘gain momentum’ and ‘we're really flying'.

Ideally we want to gain momentum through these three games so
that when we step out there against Argentina that we’re really
flying.

Mike uses this phrase to mean his team will be performing at a high
level.
Here's an example:
Last night we won the football match! We were really flying!
Well we spoke to people in London. Listen to how they use this
phrase.
