Was just about to type: "Sexton is bringing runners onto the ball flat" and then he f*cks one up.
Terrible under the kick, mind.

Wheels well and truely fallen off.

Tis an 80 minute game and although the Lions competed manfully for 60, that's the point where most teams fall away.

We just don't have any f**king idea what to do in attack, it's the same as 4 years ago

Takes a special kind of shit coach to make Farrell/Sexton look limited but Gatland's your man

Some of the rated Lions are not really that good

Kruis is not even close to the league of the AB locks
Farrell is not a 1st 5. He looks a plodder

The game was over before that last try. Barnes is frightfully optimistic.
