Dallaglio: Sonny Bill Williams will stay on the bench
ITV pundit and former England captain Lawrence Dallaglio believes Graham Henry may be tinkering just a little too much with his All Blacks team, while backing Sonny Bill Williams to continue as an impact player.
Talking exclusively to ITV.com/rugbyworldcup following New Zealand's handsome 87-3 win against Japan, Dallaglio said: "I think they've made another impressive performance, it was an improvement on what we saw in the opening game.
"Graham Henry is still tinkering, still looking at combinations, some might say a little bit too much.
"In terms of leadership, there's a concern for the New Zealand team when Richie McCaw and Daniel Carter are missing.
"Lots to be positive about although I'm sure there are a few things that teams like France will have looked at and thought: "Maybe if we just up the ante we can have a real go at New Zealand."
"What's very clear is that Sonny Bill Williams has to be in the match 22 ... my thoughts are that he probably stays on the bench at this moment in time.
"You look at Ma'a Nonu, he played very well today, and Conrad Smith is the brains in the backline, the guy talking to Carter, and that combination is much more tried and tested."
