Highlanders inflict second tour defeat for British and Irish Lions in Dunedin

I don't know if I ever thought the Lions had a decent chance....

I agree that in AB land it was always going to be a case of trying to limit the damage caused and perhaps scoring a couple in return to potentially win, but certainly getting beaten by provincial teams is not a good look.

It seems to me that this Lions team given maybe 4-5 months of training together, with a few games weekly against provincial sides during that time... then facing an AB team who has had maybe a week or so to prepare...MIGHT, have a chance.... but in it's current set up, with a little bit of training at home, little bit abroad, getting hammered by the locals and then facing the worlds best team.... it's not going to be pretty....imo...

But who knows... the AB's might choke..

But I think Sexton is reaching a different level.. Farrell to me is massive in defence (not a fan of him btw), and gets up without much of a thought, looking for more carrying on... Sexton seems lesser in defence and seems like a it takes his all to make his tackles, and gets up looking like he's just done a round with Tyson...

Yeh there was definitely a block, but to be fair the Lions 15 - who was slightly caught out, made a piss poor attempt at a tackle, and the Lions #4 had the perfect chance to put a big hit in, and bollocksed that up completely....

...sooo, with that in mind, the Highlanders definitely deserved that try.

Seems like every option is a compromise... I'm not sure on Sextons strength in defence will be good enough for him to hold his own, or if it is I think he'll be targeted by the AB's which will either injure him or wear him down...

But I'm not sure Teo who may be strong in defence will have the experience to handle the AB's....

At least the Corbynistas didn't get into power...Rugby would probably be banned for being too 'elite'...

Who hid my safe space?!?!

You reckon the Lions will get that lucky?

I was feeling it would come down to how 'unplayed' the AB's are on the first test and then how merciful they decide to be on test 2+3....
