in set-piece, defence and discipline that was a really, really good performance against maybe the best club side in the World.

 

Got to improve the attack now.

Crusaders average nearly 40pts a game.

 

They got 3 here.

 

That was some proper fronting up.

Think they probably underestimated the Lions. All the talk was them as favourites, Israel Dagg mouthing off about their WhatsApp group generally taking the piss. They didn't get much of a look in. Doubtless their press will be all sneery as usual.

 

And why are even the regional teams doing a haka now?

The Haka used to be utter sh*t in the 70's. Then it got good. Now it's f*cking boring.

It's f***ing contrived.

 

They may as well stand in formation as the Adidas logo.

I don't see why one team gets to do it and other doesn't. Well, maybe they do I guess. What happens with with NZ vs Samoa?

 

If I was in the other team I think I'd just warm up like Campese used to.

this kind of thing

 

 

I like it all, its a good bit of theatre, sets them up for a fall if they don't win.

 

better than dreary national anthems

Still ballsing up try-scoring chances within yards of the opposition line. Got to sort this out.

First sniff they get of our try-line and they're straight over

Courtney Laws taken a heavy blow to the head there.

Distinct lack of creativity is the theme of the tour. If we're going to do anything we'll be grinding. I suppose it's Gatland-esque.

Good finish there in fairness. Biggar particularly cute to open that up.

Thought the white line fever was going to strike again there, but Warburton gets over.

Highlanders aren't going away. Just drove right through the Lions pack for a try.
