Gray isn't even the best 2nd row in Scotland, come to think of it he isn't even in the top two in Scotland!!!
The lions are about Passion do you feel that from wg gr and af?.Maybe gr has it but i doubt if wg and rugby league mercenary af does.Get some British passionate rugby union people in not 2 mercenarys like wg and af
Well said Gedcro and thankfully the players are backing each other. Save the national rivalries for 6N - we need to win on Sat and I don't care who plays as long as we do.
AVBs Negative Spiral@2264. You said that, I didn’t!! Cole came into the side and played well. Also Croft should play in the back-row, Manu at 12 alongside JD at 13 got no time for nationalistic bias. I’d even start with Farrel, as Sexton has done nothing to keep his place. Hate you lot in Twickers and Cardiff pal, (only at sport) but down under I support the British Isles rugby Touring Team.
We have won the 1st test now let us go & win the the 3rd we can do it only if Cobisiero & Roberts & Faletau are playing because we must have go forward because last year Faletau was a thorn in the Australia defence with the Aussies only winning on the last kick virtually like the 2nd test it's that few inches between the two sides but Saturday we will win guaranteed we have worked them out now .
Must admit I wasn't a Warburton fan to start with but was impressed on sat.On the front row debate I've gone for Hibberd over Youngs simply because we cannot afford to lose the front row battle again. Hibberds better scrummaging just shades it. cannot give away silly pens again unless Beale is the kicker lol
2276 Is a (small) joke btw. Just in case of any confusion.
Ah yes! missed out the comma! :))
2275. But Sam Warburton was even better
I agree Steve Warburton was superb.
“In fact, the openside’s 70 minutes on the field was the most outstanding performance I have ever seen from a Lion. He was that good.Sir Clive Woodward's view on Warburton's performance.http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/rugbyunion/article-2352060/Lions-2013-SIR-CLIVE-WOODWARD--Beach-break-big-mistake.html?ito=feeds-newsxmlAlso gives interesting insight into his team selection or 3rd test
Corbisiero key in the scrum, Hibbard in to offer more in scum and loose, T Youngs was poor last week. Gray deserves to start with AWJ. Tipuric, Faletau and Lydiate (was awesome last wk), Murray and Sexton at half backs. Roberts and Tuilagi in midfield with a back 3 of North, Bowe and 1/2. Sounds a formidable looking team. cole, t youngs, grant, Evans, O'bien, Phillips Farrell and Hogg on bench.
@2267 what is this obsession with playing the players out of position?Why would you contemplate playing Sexton at 9 other than you're desperate to play both him and Hogg? Insanity. you might as well suggest he plays hooker...@2271 well said - agree 100%.
2264.Gedcro_from_Ponty, yes clearly the defeat must be entirely down to the English players. It cant be down to the Welsh players who lost to Australia 6 times in the space of 18 months.Gatland may be good in NH rugby, but when it comes to facing the top sides he is clearly out of his depth. One win, and that was because Oz had no kicker and a forward in the backline.
