The defensive part of his game is already solid, tackling especially, he reminded me of Dan Lydiate in the way he played on saturday, destructive tackler but not much else, you can't have that and Robshaw in the same backrow as again it puts a lot of pressure on Hughes or Billy to do everything ball carrying wise.

60 Welsh cap & British Lion Dan Lydiate?

We don't really know what instructions Underhill was given (just concentrate on the defensive side?). However, certainly the Curry twins offer more of an all-round game, I am a massive fan of those young lads.

Underhill will never have the attacking skills of Tipuric - I can't think of too many in the NH who have (Croft?). Training with Flouw every day certainly won't do him any harm at the breakdown, his top heavy body shape is more similar to Pocock than bottom heavy O'Brien.

He will hopefully be a star for Bath and England for a long time to come and at just 21 its all ahead of him.

In relation to the 10/12 I wouldn't be averse to giving Farrell/Losowski a go either and agree that Care looks so much sharper at 9 than Youngs at the moment.
