Re: The official Lions 2021 thread

Makes sense. On Watson, the near card isn’t really an issue but I thought he got thrown around by the saffas.

I’d be happy to stop dislocating fingers- a really troublesome injury that just Fücks work and my hands are a bit of a mess.

Notice how the Lions fans are begrudgingly admitting that Watson was lucky with the tip tackle? That's because any NH ref would have red carded him. Begrudgingly ?

Still think we were lucky- how the Lions were still in the game on the scoreboard was shocking. No midfield, bombscare back 3. I expect changes, the Boks will be better next game.

Does Watson not want to tackle PSDT?

How on earth is that the only angle?
Watson was cutting off his passing options, so that the next defenders could take PSDT down.

No clue why Daly then decided to stand there and watch him go.
