    If we can't put a cricket score on a team playing a flanker at centre for twenty minutes we're toast.

    Plus side, a win's a win and the Loins can't be that bad again, surely?
    Reading comments elsewhere from people who know more about this than I do, it will help to have a more even handed referee than Chris Pollock in the remaining tests.

    True.

    His first two calls for penalties against BoD were male bovine excretia of the first water.

    O'Connor did obligingly miss the resultant kicks tho.

    Lealiifano will be fine. McCabe was a sub, and Barnes is hardly irreplacable.

    Lions have a pesky midweek game against the Rebels. Even if they do come through injury free it will give them a few tender bumps and bruises. Wallabies to take the next one.

    Proudly against the bring back Bennett movement since he is injury prone and won't last 5 days.

    You'd think no one from the Test lineup would be in that team though?

    Loved that Lions-Australia game. Thriller.

    As for the ABs, is there really no way we can get Ranger out of his French contract? Huge, huge loss.

    Got tickets to both the Melbourne games this week. Hopefully the Wallabies can level it up.

    Right you are - posted that before I saw the line up. With two exceptions
    1) Tuilagi will start against the Rebels to see if he can start the test.
    3) The reserves for the tests will be reserves for this game.

    Probably the 1st even handed rugby ref I've seen and Lions supporters complaining they didn't get favouritism as a right. Nice to see a ref ping the other guys for BS at the scrum for a change instead of penalise the Wallabies coz everyone else does.

    As a neutral I thought he started the game pinging the Lions and then was 50/50 after that.

    I think his worst call was the penalty on the Lions that led to Genia taking the quick tap and Israel going over in the corner. Basically the Aussie six went over the top and sealed the ball off and the ref said nothing - so the Lions went over the top and he pinged them.
