Sam had a good game. Infact a very good game!

For his 2nd cap I believe, maybe 3rd.

He has an ability too stop people dead and hit them backwards, extremely hard too do now a days with the size of these blokes.
For me he has put a marker down at 7.
Still has loads of room for improvement as well.

Back row is about ballance........

For me with a work horse like him at 7 that is going to make that many tackles, I want a ball carrier at 6.

Think England are over reliant on one big carrier, was Billy V, now Hughes. If they get stopped or are at the bottom of the ruck we seem too struggle to create momentum.
Making it harder for the backs to get much going.

If all fit I woukd quite like

Williams (big strong abrasive carrier and tackler, solid in set piece)
Billy V

I just think you don't win a World Cup being conservative, let's have a two pronged attack in the back row. Will give defenders NIGHTMARES!
