Id be cool with a 2 warm up games + 1 test in Oz before a test match series + 4 midweek games in NZ but Im sure most wouldnt.
Surely the Oz game is the warm up, no?

Re: OFFICIAL All Blacks vs B&I Lions SECOND TEST MATCH THREA

exciting game. congratulations, lions. Thought we lacked a bit of leadership in the back in the closing minutes. That and starting to run out of steam. Plus Cruden's Donald-esque decision making at the end.

Re: OFFICIAL All Blacks vs B&I Lions FIRST TEST MATCH THREAD

I thought the Lions went pretty well; seemed to be trying to put in a solid, cohesive performance rather than overhype themselves into Itoje-land and dash around madly leaving gaps for the ABs to exploit. That said Beauden's evident (smothered) amusement when asked, "Did they [the Lions] bring what ...

Re: OFFICIAL All Blacks vs B&I Lions FIRST TEST MATCH THREAD

Got 20 minutes to get a sense of the game then have to head to work. Looking for omens: never like it when the players don't smile in their screen cameos. Too much of the Al Baxter "I'm a hard man, honest" to it.

Redeemed as Liam Williams looks like he's bricking it.

Kia kaha.

Re: The OFFICIAL 2017 General Election Thread

They are no closer than Brown managed to get. And we still need to win votes from the centre to actually get a majority - and it will be far harder next time around as the Tories will put up a better candidate, or, at least, one who will campaign and go after the popular vote. It doesn't really mat...

Re: The OFFICIAL 2017 General Election Thread

Strewth - there's some far fetched speculation in there. But - the nub of the point is that you appear to be celebrating another loss which actually sees Labour not really any closer to forming a Government themselves. I'm afraid that's completely wrong. The Tories previously had a majority, but no...

Re: The OFFICIAL 2017 General Election Thread

Happy to lose yet another election and only achieving what Brown achieved in 2010 - that's hardly progress. And it was against a truly woeful Tory campaign - a gilt edged opportunity missed. Most Leaders would immediately resign in the face of such a loss (like Brown did). Needless to say Corbyn wi...

Well. The intensity of enthusiasm for Corbyn has produced dividends in our seat. The Tory vote was a couple of hundred less than it had been in 2015, but the Labour vote, aided by there being no Green or UKIP standing, rocketed up by a little more than 10,000.

Not a big fan of the Lions tours in the professional era.
