POC is a huge loss, I'm gutted for him as a chance to be a Lions hero at this stage of his career was there for the taking. We need plenty of cool heads and experience, Warburton's only 25 but he's got to start IMO. Saturday will be a huge pressure game, even more so than Brisbane, sorry to be boring but it's about control, territory and keeping the scoreboard ticking along. The Lions have players that can hurt Australia, holes will appear when the Aussies are under pressure.
@a_a - I think Phillips is first choice at 9 as you'll see from my posts, but what do you think about his "chase" of Genia on the first Aussie try ?
