Hawke's Bay shearer Rowland Smith will tackle the World solo eight-hour strongwool ewe shearing record in England tonight (NZST).

His New Zealand shearing team mate Jack Fagan spoke to The Country's Jamie Mackay today for a preview of the record attempt.

Fagan says Smith's probably one of the few men in the world that is actually capable of doing this event on Monday then backing up in a shearing test two days later.

Jack talks Jamie through how the day will pan out for Rowland and also comments on the shearer's "spot on" training routine.
