What will Eddie do for this game?

Use 'fringe' players like Gatland did with Wales V Georgia.

What will it mean for the current contingent of Chiefs?

A start for Harry maybe and a chance for Simmo to show his current form?

Henry with a chance to play 13?

There is a lot of talk about the Samoan players are only getting paid 650 this week compared to the 23,000 England's get.

Most of the Samoan players will be on 100,000 contracts with European clubs and are not poor, it is the Samoan Union that is poor, will the Samoan players that are playing in Europe go without their match fees to help their poor Union

Rightfully so but, I am getting frustrated with all this talk of Sam having to put bulk on. Why? Just because a Number 8 has traditionally been a mobile tank? If he can add some mobility to the pack and it works then just let him get on with it for goodness sakes! It's nice to see a forward able to stay on the bloody field of play for the full 80 minutes in my opinion.

Sam apparently said after the match that bulk doesn't suit his game. Good on him.

Wake up and smell the Chiefs!

He's 6 feet tall and weighs 16 stones, and yet he's being spoken about as though he should be one of Snow White's pals. Keep him as he is, I reckon, and hope EJ changes his mind about what constitutes a good No 8.

Sam has lots of power in those legs and surely if he bulks up he will lose some of his biggest asset which is his speed!
If it ain't broke don't fix it......
