    I think both teams were down on personnel. It didn't look the strongest Brumby team to me. Difference being that the Lions are 4 countries and can more easily find capable replacements of the required standard.

    That should be "flattering the Lions" there, obvs. We were definitely missing quite a few, whether through Test selection or injury. It's probably one of the weakest sides we've fielded all year, if not the weakest.

    When you say we do you mean the Brumbies or the Lions?

    Brumbies, sorry. Initial post was confusing.

    Would be about my pick as well. I'm predicting an 3-0 easy series win.

    Surely the Lions will win.

    Predicting 3-0 Lions. Doubt they have been trying hard up until now.
    I got great enjoyment shouting "WHY THE **** ISN'T THIS GAME BEING PLAYED AT THE BASIN?!>!?!?" to reasonably significant cheers from the sparse crowd
    one day NZ will bring chappell to his knees in a puddle of his own tears and you'll see Phlegm on his belly greedily tasting every delicious tear before watching the hope fade from that old ****s eyes.

    Lions favs on paper, for sure. Rugby not played on etc tho.

    Interesting the Wobblies have (I think) 3 players on test day-boo (as ver crims insist on pronouncing it) tho. Kinda gives lie to the "Deans is a conservative" truism.

    North versus Falou looks a very interesting match up.

    Not sold on O'Connor as out-half myself. Don't think he has the distribution skills for a #10.

    There are reasons why we only win these series when the side is chock full of ATGs, and I'm not sure the present line-up quite meets that criteria.
    Just hope it's down to rubgy this time and we don't see a repeat of O'Driscoll being deliberately hospitalised.

    Lots of great articles recently. Did you see the series in the Guardian about the 50 greatest Lions? As you'd expect, most of them, were from the 1971 & 1974 tours. Some great reading, to be sure.

    Sensational first half. Folau looks quite a find, doesn't he.

    Sure is, excellent first half. Nice to see some decent rugby after the woeful French back in NZ.

    The Aussies really need to find a decent goal kicker though. Could well prove the difference in this match and the series as a whole.
