London - The England rugby team head coach Stuart Lancaster has shown his team a motivational video featuring Proteas captain Graeme Smith.

According to The Telegraph's website Lancaster showed his team the motivational video featuring Smith in which he talks about the team culture he tried to instil in the Proteas, in a "quest to look at the culture, identity and legacy of his team".
