Re: Lions 2021

Maul defence was also shocking. Hendy would help with that. In the A game Adam Beard was much more prominent in that role. Would be great to see Hendy make the bench. Tactics so far have been to have lock cover in case of need rather than proactively replace. Think they will look to address this an...

Re: Lions 2021

What is Hogg's role? He has been shocking so has vDM. They're both useless under a high ball in traffic.
Williams and Adams should have been in from day one.
AWJ has shown his age and should be replaced by Lawes with Bierne at 6 and Hendy on the bench.

Re: Lions 2021

The game has a massive problem. Refereeing is incredibly poor and inconsistent. Has always been thus, but now we have social media. I've been preaching for years that there's too much for the referee to watch and now with so many cameras picking up everything, it's a thankless task. So unless we're...

Re: Lions 2021

If we're going to have a video critique of every big game, we're in trouble.
I watched the whole crazy thing and while some of his points are valid others are one eyed crapola.
I think he's gone too far.

Re: Lions 2021

Hamish Watson no idea how that isn't a card, but it feels like rules have been changing during this season so what do I know. Would argue on Le Roux's non try I thought it was a forward pass, and definitely feel Le Roux's foot was in front of the ball which I'm assuming is off side?! Agreed I'd swa...

Re: Lions 2021

Kiwi TMO unable to travel to South Africa for test series, so instead we get homer TMO Marius Jonker for the test series, he did South Africa A v Lions game. It's a bit of an unfiar position to put Jonker in. He could end up over compensating in the opposite direction. Begs the question........ doe...

Re: The Golf

It was rumoured for 2024. So with everything shunted back a year, it's possible.
What is known is the success of 2019 as an event and of how popular the course was. Some other venues are looking a bit tired including St George's.

Given the attritional nature of the three tests and the virulence of COVID in SA I think a sizeable chunk of the overall Lions squad could end up with a test cap!
They have had very few injuries so far, but as you say it is likely to be a robust series.

I think hendo will make the bench. No point putting AWJ there if he is to be involved in the 23. Better to start your tour captain and being on a fresh Henderson with 30 to go.

Lawes is likely to cover 4-6 off the bench.

Re: All the best Cooney.

(and the Lions snub) is the start of phasing him out. I wonder how much of Gatlands non selection of Sexton is down to what he has seen of him and his approach to others, from the outside looking in Sexton does come across as toxic. He's not toxic, IMHO he's reacting badly to the fading of the light.
