Davies was ball watching and cost the squad in the second test, so to say he had a fantastic tour its absolutely ridiculous. Depends on what you been by success they won the tour but they lost the spirit of the lions.
sour grapes or what? Credit where it is due as all Irish fans did after the RWC 2011 quarter where Wales beat Ireland they were the better team that day. Ireland were Saturday and if having a go and back healing the ball into your hand while the ball goes behind you is average and consistently scoring hatricks is average then I cant wait till he reaches his peek. »
I don't think bod shouldent be there untill he proves he should be in the 6 nations. How they coul leave cian healy out is a joke. Heaslip and o'brien need to up their game. To be considered the second rows will be intresting because all the sides have good 2nd row's. Its all well and good picking a side now but its the 6 nations that count. Besides bowe will misd the 6 nations with his injury so he is pretty much outa the lions runnin in my oppinion. »
Well like it or not the decision Owens gave was wrong for the two reasons previously mentioned. He ruined a great match and the fact is Ireland for the last couple of years have been getting unfairly penalized and have been screwed out of matches by bad reffing decisions a lot the last two years that's a fact. All I want is consistency, Owens is a bit fast to go to the pocket for a card and his positional play at scrum time is appalling he does be on the wrong side of the scrum when his assistant can watch that side freeing him to look at the other side and perhaps he should stand a little back that way he can also watch the props bind and the two back rows still bound to the scrum.
