Hughes looked pretty nifty on his feet for his try.......

Not saying it is the definite answer, but do think we need to try and find more ball carriers in the pack.

Kaino for NZ is a prime example of what I like in my 6.....
Big hitting, hard carrying impact player on the pitch.

And he is a big guy and not known for his pace, don't know his exact weight though

I like Courtney at 6 for Saints, but not sure like we found with Maro last 6 nations are they good enough carriers for International Back rowers?

This is all opinion of course:

But I think


For me that would scare teams.
Big big strong fit men. 2 prime carriers at 6 and 8.
And a workhorse and big hitter at 7.
With 2 extremely athletic and physical locks.

At the moment if a team can stop Hughes or Billy at 8 and target them, they slow our whole game down. Saw it last 6 nations and saw it first test in the Autumn.
