Going off SL form Samoa would give England a fright, but by the time the World Cup comes around most of their best lads are poached by the Kiwis and Aussies (and even England with Fasavalu!!).
The Anteroa Maori look strong too and will scare England in the warm up next week - wouldn't suprise me if we lost this opening tour game.
