Just want to say after watching the last 5-6years of international rugby...

the last last two tests between the ABs and Lions have been some of the best rugby I've ever seen...

The first 10-15mins of the first test already showed the lions are capable of winning the series...if they take opportunities

both tests have shown how the ABs have more than the ability to win the tests, particularly if they adapt to refs that actually have balls.

It's incredibly refreshing to see a referee....who actually calls it as he sees it and nails indescresions.

This applies to BOTH SIDES : eg his repeated nailing of Etoje offside could have cost lions the game..brilliant reffing.

Sending off of SBW... One of the best decisions I have seen in International referreeing.

The yellow card....etc..in the end the decisions all evened out.

any ab fans suggesting otherwise need to check out cody Taylor's blatant late on the Lions fullback which was waved away..
any lions fans suggesting otherwise need to check out the naholo headknock which was "missed".

the only real blemish in my opinion.

If that was a Super rugby game ..SBW probably yellow...typical p*&sy southern hemisphere refs.

Also a big ups to this board...as opposed to some talkback i've heard.

SBW's indescrecion was rightfully punished ..and this board recognises that ...:

it's simple> if you break the rules ..you pay the penalty.....if you keep discipline..u don't get penalised.

so here my real real rant:

Cue some talkback callers saying the game was ruined because a player was sent off.....it just does my head in.

Cue a bunch of AB fans coming on and slamming the ref......what a load of $^&%$.

But back to the teams...huge effort from both so far and great series....should be an awesome/fair ending to the series

with a ref(poite) in the third test ...rather than a p^%&*^y dressed up as a ref.
