"Everything is going according to plan, I think the preparation is going really well.
The first friendly game which I played in was ok. I am still not in my best form but there is plenty of time to improve before the start of the season.
We have two more games here in South Africa and then we will return to England to continue our preparation."
On the season ahead...
"I am full of energy and the new season will be very interesting. Of course, now it will be harder for me as everybody in the Premiership knows my qualities.
My wish is to remain healthy as the injuries are the worst thing for a sportsman. If I am healthy I can show my best form and help the team with my play and goals.
I do not have an aim to score a certain amount of goals but I think with the help of my team-mates I can beat my scoring record from the last season. However, the most important thing is for the team to win their games and fulfill our high expectations."
