Ireland back row Will Connors feels he is reaping the benefits of working closely with CJ Stander in training as players exchange expertise and specialties.
The Leinster flanker has been named to start in the final Autumn Nations Cup group match against Georgia and will share back row duties with Munster duo Stander and Tadgh Beirne.
"Myself and CJ, obviously he's incredible at poach work and then I pride myself in the chop tackle so both of us are working together to learn off each other," he said.
"We've started calling it a bit of a chop shop. He's trying to teach me how to get in onto the ball quick, while I'm trying to teach him those first few steps and chop tackling and stuff.
"He's one of the best poachers in the game so to be able to learn skills off him like that is priceless."
Connors, who came off the bench for last Saturday's defeat to England at Twickenham, remains adamant that Ireland remain on the right path in terms of their overall development in attack under Andy Farrell.
"We nearly played within ourselves because we know we have a lot more in the locker and that's probably the disappointing thing," he said.
"It's just about backing ourselves and having that confidence to play that kind of game. Going forward we really need to back ourselves and put our skillsets under pressure because that's where we're top level really."
