We will play a worse side in 6n namely Italy. At no point after second half did I say I was happy with our performance. It's nowhere near the worst period in Samoan rugby...not even close. As for rankings no one with a passing knowledge of rugby believes that Samoan side would lose to Romania. My point was quite simply that they aren't a gang as you claimed. They are a competent physical rugby team that at full strength we would have no divine right to roll over. If wales or Ireland were missing the number n quality of players we were then both would be happy at a win over Samoa. If their players were as poor as you say why are so many playing in super rugby pro 14 France n England?? Every player I mentioned that's missing has been recently a starter for us. Not in any way claiming Samoa are world beaters but bit of perspective is required. Six years ago we were a bawhair from losing to Romania n Georgia at rwc....the coach prev to toony couldn't get us higher than 4th in 6n n led us to our worst ever defeat to England n managed zero wins v England nz oz n sa. We have no divine right to roll over Samoa. Yet we beat them with half a side missing by a bigger margin than we did in last rwc....and we still know we can play much better. Its far from perfect but we have been in far far worse places.
