I feel your unintentionally crafting a rod for Furlong's back.
I must admit that when I think of the current ABs scrummaging is way down the list of potential threats they possess. Neither Franks nor Moody is a destructive scrummager, and Ireland dealt with them comfortably in both games. I'm not convinced that SAs scrum is the benchmark it was in the past so I wouldn't be relying on them to measure the quality of the ABs scrum.
If the Lions had a truly destructive tighthead then I would go with him against what I think is a potential weakness in the ABs armoury, but Cole isnt that man, and while Nel has shown signs of it in the past year he has been fairly unconvincing, for a number of reasons, this season.
