Re: The official Lions 2021 thread

Springboks were a little tired from covid. No excuses this time. So the finished XV only looked better because of that, actually the starting XV were your best team

Re: 2021 Carling Currie Cup Official thread

By the look of things the United Cup that kicks off in a months time will need a near test side. The "Aussie" (he's actually one of those best of Samoa/Tonga/Fiji that nz poach early age for ABs) played 7 tests and then left for UK Harlequins. I think the buy was just to up the test experience same ...

Re: The official Lions 2021 thread

So that's a hard one to figure out selection wise. Daly and Hogg in the backs really didn't cover themselves in glory. Wings probably get a pass. Henshaw/Harris plus Williams? Pack were mostly fine outside the lineout and that's up to the analysis to see if LCD really deserves all the blame. Mako c...

Re: Official Match Thread: BIL vs Springboks

That Le Roux non-try decision raises an interesting point. Ref's on field decision is try but I feel that is really only because he saw the try was scored. To me the 'definitive' rider should then only be applied to the act of scoring the try, eg if he knocked it on as he grounded it. Everything el...

Re: Official Match Thread: BIL vs Springboks

One thing is Lions hadn't played any hard games except for the SA-A game. Griquas and Pumas on Currie Cup form would have given Lions a better preperation. Lions of old used to play hard CurrieCup teams. Lions at one stage played nr6 on the Cc log. Except for the 2009 Lions that also played weak opp...

I can't remember him ever doing it with Wales or the Lions previously.

With the Boks picking a 5/3 bench, it makes absolutely no sense.
