one of my favourite test matches! Joe Roff and Matt Burke were amazing. 3rd test mash up will be ready for next weeks final test. Hope you liked it!

Even in that post-Lomu era, Joe Roff was a big strong bugger for a wing.

How quick was George Gregan at getting to the breakdown and getting the backline moving? WTF ever happened to quick ball??

Halcyon days...

Both 9s display how useless Phillips is, they produced super fast ball and defenses are even faster now.

Whatever happened to teams swapping jerseys? I see the one Lions player about to do it at the end of this vid.

In the Lions series or in general?

I might have last seen it in 2003 or 2007 RWC but not 100% sure, I guess players might want to hang onto their "winning jersey"...

In General, it just seems like its become a dying tradition.

Yeh true, I haven't seen it much.

I could be way off here, but do you think there could be any voices from above halting jersey swapping due to sponsors?

Either that or like I said before, people want to keep their winning jersey :/

Both the Lions and Wallabies this year are given 2 jerseys per match - 1 for the 1st half, which the wearer keeps, 1 for the 2nd half which is for trading with your opposite number. Brilliant idea in my book. Doesn't leave anyone feeling awkward at the end.
