The Lions were rubbish, it was painful to watch. Didn't seem to have any ideas about how to score.

Shane Byrne's lineout throwing was shocking - drop him!
Stephen Jones doens't seem to know how to tackle - drop him!
Jason Robinson was poor at full back - drop him or put him on the wing where he doesn't have to kick!

The Lions have been so poor since the opening minutes against Argentina i can't see them improving and i think NZ will win the next 2 as well.

When's the next game ?

They play Manawatu on Tuesday & the next Test is in Wellington on Saturday 2nd July.

Told you what was going to happen... they were out muscled in the forwards, outplayed everywhere & just plain outclassed!

Woodward is an idiot, NZ have thought that for sometime of course, but he proved it on Saturday by favouring the English & leaving the form players out of the game

Wow Fiona, you're a serious Rugby fan, aren't you?

Hell Yes

It is the national sport.. so most of the country are serious fans - some of my friends might say I'm fanatical though

We have been hearing for so long that this is the best prepared Lions side ever & that we were going to struggle agains them in the tight 5 (front & 2nd row of the scrum - for non rugby fans) so we are all having a bit of a giggle at how easily we wiped the floor with them

However, they will regroup & come out hard on Saturday so we aren't resting on our laurels..

This is what competitive sport is all about, especially down under. Which country beat Australia at the last world championship? There is no doubt that the victors certainly had the greater stamina on the day.

For those that weren't aware, Australia & New Zealand are very closely connected in many ways. Fiona can elaborate if she cares. In fact, the current and former British Commonwealth countries, that indulge in the same sports, have a lot of fun teasing each other.

For me, it was great to hear the NZ result after all the boasting of the opposition beforehand. Unless NZ are playing against my own native country of Australia, I'd cheer for them any day.

Isn't Grigan a Kiwi?

No, he's your half-back, plays for the Brumbies in Super 12.. & although it makes me nearly choke, probably The best halfback in the game
