I disagree A-A, we know the Aussies will play a pest at 7. We need somebody quick with a tidying brief or we will lose pens all day.
True, but we also don’t need a backrow with two sevens and a 6.5 which SOB Tips and Warbs would be, one of tips/Warbs then its between, SOB, Croft and Lydiate for 6 and Faletau, Heaslip at 8.Posted 4 years ago
Dunno why some people on these threads have to talk like football fans.
Dawson “not fit” to talk about Howley? What utter crap.
Joost, Howley & Dawson were all fantastic. (And I can’t stand S.A.)

My observations from that highlight video:
Western Force were shite!!!
1/2p and Sexton are shoe ins. Other backs for me would be Phillips, North, Bowe, BOD and either Tuilagi or Roberts.
Vunipola is awesome and could start. Front row of him Adam and Hibbard is my guess.
Heaslip has to be right in contention for a start.
Tuilagi and BOD Looked like a pairing that worked well although Tuilagi was at fault for their second try.
AWJ looked a bit suspect for their first try.Posted 4 years ago
AWJ looked a bit suspect for their first try.
looked like SOB rushing up and missing leaving a hole to me, if Vunipola can improve his scrummaging he could be very useful, Healey if not banned or broken should be test 1 imo. Not bad to have Gethin waiting in the wings either.Posted 4 years ago
Its hard to judge much when playing shite teams though. I want to see how Croft goes when having to defend like crazy for wave after wave, I’d prefer Lydiate maybe but Lydiate wont look much good playing shit teams that don’t test his defence……ijs445raMember

No such thing as an easy pool in the Heineken. Happy enough with Ulsters pool, we stuffed the Tigers in Belfast and were unlucky to loose in Leicester so we have a good shout of getting out of the pool.
I don’t think the citing will end Healy’s tour, more likely to be the injury.Posted 4 years ago
What is the draw based on? It is just cos Carduff are above Glasgow and London North are above Glaws.Posted 4 years ago
D-D They will be plenty because they will prob move it to Murrayfield. Drinking wise, well it will be a dirty job, but I am willing to appoint meself as your tour guide.teamhurtmoreSubscriber
I only caught the first 25 mins of the match yesterday so missed both bits re CH. But is he in danger of becoming another Hartley ie, good player but prize one ****t and liability at the same time? Put both of them together and the yellow card risk jumps immediately.
As an (ex-) Hooker, I am still staggered at how poor the line out throwing remains at the highest level in the game. You can almost see the fear in the hookers’ eyes in the way that Thommo always had a pained expression on his face even in 2003.Posted 4 years agoteamhurtmoreSubscriber
AA, I like Hibbard (despite…!) but again not confident that he can hit his man. He has come a long way since staring in Overboard. Bet he has some tales about Goldie?
I would have expect to have been dropped if I missed two or more throws by the kind of margins that we still see at the top level. Perhaps, I am being too nostalgic. We used to actually hook the ball when I last played as well!!
Despite oppo, I though Lions looked good for first part that I saw and still great competition for places. Ok, not at 15 or 10 now!!Posted 4 years ago
