Burgess in England squad

Curated by

 

Sam Burgess has been included in England’s World Cup squad, according to Sky sources. Former England captain Will Carling believes it is a mistake to select Burgess, claiming he is not ready to play rugby union at the highest level. England’s Stuart Lancaster would never admit as much, but he was probably thinking along similar lines when he selected Sam Burgess and Henry Slade in the centre for the first warm-up Test against France.

 

 

  • However, ex-Great Britain and England rugby league international Paul Wellens believes Burgess has all the attributes to succeed at the World Cup.
  • Unsure about some big names in his squad, he gave them some rope in the first warm-up Test of the summer against Ireland.
  • Critics will aver that ‘he only made a couple of big hits’ but that would be to ignore blithely the impact that they had.
