Sam Burgess was widely touted as the next Sonny Bill Williams when he made his record breaking move to Rugby Union and Bath.

His first season was far from impressive but England have not given up hope and still have faith in the former Rugby League star.

A very special British & Irish Lions House of Rugby show – fronted by Sean O'Brien and Alex Goode – is available now and will run for the duration of the tour. Follow and subscribe to it HERE

Burgess has seen game time at both flanker at center with many arguing as to which position he should be in.

He made his England debut the weekend versus Scotland at center and many felt he impressed.  With Manu Tuilagi ruled out for the World Cup, the England 12 jersey is certainly there for the taking, and if these tackles are anything to go by then we reckon there’s still time for Sam Burgess to become the superstar many think he is capable of becoming.
