1. Chris Robshaw v Akapusi Qera
Two opensides, two captains, two competitors but different players.
Qera (right) is much more of a carrier and can also be more of a destructive tackler.
He will fly out of his defensive line to make a big hit – beware!
Robshaw is more of a link man. He does not bust a line but can break you with subtlety, a deft pass, perhaps.
Qera is a good athlete, has pace, but Robshaw will probably be better on the ground.
His point of difference is his work, the number of tackles he makes, the amount of time he slows down the opposition ball and the number of attacking moves he gets to.
This will be a great match-up.
