The experienced campaigner felt the trip to the South Hemisphere has brought the squad together and that there is now a team feel about Steve McNamara's selections.

England warm-up for the tournament with a friendly against Italy at Salford on Saturday and Burrow insists the team will be out to impress to ensure players cement their places to face Australia.
