Fantastic result for Samoa today and full credit to them, thoroughly enjoyed watching them destroy us at every breakdown and then belt us in defense. Rod Davies will be one sore boy tonight. Tuilagi is just massive. How long is he contracted to Leicester for? If Digby leaves the Reds for the Yen then Tuilagi would make a great replacement (international import signing) - the Reds backs coach has coached him before as well.
Was also good to see the class of Genia and Beale on show - thye come on and all of a sudden they start breaking the line. Higginbothams chip and chase and flick to Giteau was also a moment of magic.
Looking a bit shaky though if that is our genuine B side, think most played themselves out of positions rather than into them - our depth not as genuine as one would hope.
Dunno exactly, but he's been at the Tigers since god was a lad. Welford Road is the Tuilagis' spiritual home. Aside from Alex, Henry, Andy & Freddie have all played for the Tigers and Manu is on their books currently.
Manu's in England's provisional WC squad...
Manu's a tank as well and a little tasty too.
