“Brutal” – Referee missed ‘three punches’ to Billy Vunipola’s face against Samoa

Telegraph 5/10: “Scrummaged his socks off, as is his wont, but will not enjoy some of the defensive review, where he was palpably off the pace.”

Rugby Pass 5/10: “It started off as his sort of game, England on the front foot and the prop clearing breakdowns and enjoying the scrum. However, once Samoa got possession and shifted it about, he was left flagging and was pulled eight minutes into the second half despite a chunky tackle count.”

Replacement: Kyle Sinckler
