How the Rose and Samoa play and some statistics
To talk about how England plays, it is necessary to mention their neat and efficient hand play to finish their moves at the top. The team is not the competitive one that was able to fill the public in 2003. Today we are talking about a team that must reposition itself from the game and not only play with its history. Samoa is an island team that stood out and always stands out for its physicality and forcefulness in contact, with or without the ball.
It is worth mentioning the inclusion of three former All Blacks: Charlie Faumuina (49 caps and 2015 World Cup champion), Steven Luatua (15 caps) and Lima Sopoaga (17 caps). These players give a huge leap in quality to the squad.
