On the train waiting to leave Welly station with a bunch of ppretty boyant fans all things considered. Mind, the Lions fans are in very good cheer which maybe lifting the overall mood.

Well done to the Lions. It's all on. :thumbup:

Sonny Bill, well what an arse.

Sinckler have had that last pen overturned if the other Lions hadn't grabbed him. What a plonker.
Farrell is such a leader, will be next Lions captain imo.
Can someone expand on MrD's point? I didn't see it. At what minute was it?

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.

Is he actually one of ours? I see the clog5 bit and think Clogs and Oz is why I ask.

But if they are do you really want to go down that track? If we sort out our ref whingers you'll be honor bound to sort out yours, and that's a big job.
I'll take that deal, yeah. :thumbup:

Ball's in your court first up...

Done.

Ngatai hasn't shown any form, hasn't played test rugby and laumape was outstanding.

Toro wrote:For what it's worth I don't think Garces got anything wrong today, he let no one hang around the ruck area and was pretty good on the offside line. Don't think either could complain about him, definitely not Nz fans as apart from the card I thought we very much got the rub, but the lions discipline was very average and they are offside way too much.

I think both sets of fans could agree the last penalty was incredibly harsh to lose a game on, unfortunately to the letter it's a penalty. Either way they were storming into our half and with a man down we would've been stretched again or possibly given a penalty away for something else.

Happy for Lions fans, roller coaster tour for you and no one gets to celebrate a victory against the All Blacks IN NZ very often. We have a series on our hands. 😓😅
Very much this. I'd be pissed off if my side lost to it, but at the same time, it was Lions attacking ball in the red zone, at a time when they'd finally remembered how to keep the ball the way they did in the opening quarter. Who know what would have happened 3 phases later?
