They had numbers for the second try because an England defender went the wrong side of the PTB. Effectively 3 v 2 at that point.

That’s not what happened, Samoa had one man on the short side and he’s marked by Young. Watkins rightly goes to the open side, if he doesn’t we would be short on that side.  
That leaves Welsby at Marker to defend their dummy half and he just switched off, even half turning his back which left Young defending 2 players

Samoa have a reduced bench due to head injuries, mcllorum isn't dangerous around the ruck and Samoa know he's going to pass, it's the same for the Catalan, 

Hopefully Samoa will tire. 

Did both fail HIA? Is there 18th man in internationals?

Davo simply will not allow disparaging anyone with a link to Wigan.....

Maybe, but we have to look at whats happening in front of our eyes, micky mac is not the only one Watkins has been terrible in defence and missing a guilt edged chance.

We’re just not as good as we think we are unfortunately , those group games and the easy win against PNG gave s fals sense of how good the team is. We can still win this though

It’s as if they’ve spent the week reading this forum & expected another comfortable win.

Well I suppose we can’t blame the ref so just come out with some other rubbish.

You watch that back and he got busted a lot. Not only are they running through him but there also picking him and knackering him out. Radley needs to go there. He's just not controlling it

True, but then that calls into question Wane's entire squad selection...

I don’t disagree. I’m really conscious that we have a load of players in there who aren’t playing anywhere near as well as *they themselves* played at their peak: Watkins, McIlorum, Bateman, Tomkins, Thompson, Williams, to name just a few. 
 

but the problem I have is that there are very few options I can think of where we have obviously better players in those positions. So far, a lot of those players have rolled back the tears. But today they look much more like their faded current selves.

They're targeting him in defence, standing back when he's at acting half as they know he's never going to run at them, let's them set their defence every time without worrying about the space behind the tackle.
