As Adam Jones commented - as an experienced prop I did to the youngster (i.e. Hill) what used to happen to me as experienced props gave me a tough time when I was a youngster. I have always thought that Hill's confidence was shattered by the hammering he received from Adam and its taken time for him to recover.

I remember a Heineken cup game against Ospreys at the Gardens a few years ago now when Jones got destroyed by a young Alex Waller. I had a mate with me who is an Ospreys fan. Hilarious so it was. I remember going to the Millenium a few months later when England beat Wales and he got destroyed yet again by either Mako or Cole, can't remember which one. Good though!

My first thought on Eif's post too. Waller turned a couple of Lions inside out that season, as I recall.

He did Matthew. That led up to the Saxon's cap and he may have been considered unlucky not to get a full cap. To me, since then, our previous coaching team tried to grind him into the dust by overplaying him to a massive extent imo. He's not quite been the same since. Used properly he could be that good again. That Waller and a properly trusted Hill could make our front row really good again.
