Scrum-half expects extra attention

02 September 2011 - 12:20 PM



Australia star Will Genia says he will cope with any extra attention afforded to him by opponents at the World Cup.

Genia is currently in fine form, having played a key role in the Queensland Reds side that triumphed in Australia this season, before continuing his success with the Wallabies - starring in their successful Tri-Nations campaign.

The scrum-half believes this will lead to him being targeted by opponents but the 23-year-old is more than confident he will to be able to handle everything that's thrown at him.

"As a 9 and probably a 10 as well, you are always going to get a lot of pressure put on you" he told AAP. "People are going to want you to make tackles and make decisions and I love being under pressure,"

"I love taking it in my stride and making the right decisions at the right times."
