  1. Manu back with a bang! I didn’t see the game so I can’t comment on his performance overall. I hope that he has turned the corner injury wise. Looking at that try, he still appears to have all the power and pace needed for the int’l game.

  2. Some great tries in here
    Cipriani’s no look long distance pass out of contact is quite special and the weighted kick to Leiua is absolutely inch perfect but for me the pick of the bunch has to be Daly’s dummy step and wheels to individually tear the defence apart

    1. That said there is nothing special about the Tuilagi and Slade tries as they are more poor defence than sublime skill. just making up the numbers i guess

      1. You’re having a laugh! Manu bust through two tackles and one-sided two of the back three. Jonah couldn’t have done better.

  3. Totally agree with Leon. The kick and the no look wide pass were outstanding skill but, Daly’s dummy, step and pure wheels should win this one. Manu’s try was good but he will probably need a week off to recover and, whilst Slade’s looked good it was mainly an error from Wasps that led to it.

    Also Daly’s try shows me why he should be playing 13 for England.

    1. Think there’s some harshness towards Tuilagi and Slade here.
      Tuilagi runs a great line, shows strength to bust a couple of tackles and despite never been known for out and out pace and just coming back from long injury lay-offs, has the wheels to get to the line
      Slade was less showy but it was a great reading of the Wasps attack and he showed serious pace to out-run both Daly and Wade for the try

      1. I was waiting for someone to say that. Yes he was but, in the passage of play he scored from he was attacking from the 13 chanel, similar to the way that Goode often does for Sarries. Obviously Goode does it to offer the extra playmaker but Daly just uses his speed.
