He did cop knees in the back / back of the legs as he scored.

The reason I said it was cramping was because he cramped up prior to the try. He also looked like he was drinking pickle juice. So I was also hopeful it was just cramp.

I read somewhere that Hughes had 19 tackle breaks, set up 4 tries and scored 2 himself before getting an early mark. I wouldn't trade him for any other halfback in the game right now.

19 tackle breaks, was he playing against the under 11's?

Great pass from ex-Storm Under 20s player Jordan Meads to set up Siteni Taukamo for a try for Greece against England.

It's a tough one for teams like Greece, obviously they need the exposure to this level in order to improve but it also creates scorelines like this and unfortunately it's professionals versus amateurs for the most part. Really hoping that they keep giving these nations opportunities though so that we can have a genuinely open international competition in a decade or two.
