No we can't. The cladding is a regulations issue

Maybe the lack of other fire prevention measure like fire door, alarms or sprinklers can be linked to austerity but not the cladding used.

Lions' half-backs were completely outplayed. As predicted, Farrell was gash at 10. No pace or quick feet, just a plodding passer and good kicker. Couldn't do those things right either tonight.

Funnily enough it was the backs (bar Farrell) who did well. But flyhalf is rather important, and you don't beat the All Blacks with 1 moment of brilliance.
