The Force will be well beaten but I expect a few fireworks and big hits along the way as well.

I prefer the look of this BIL back line to the one that played on the weekend so am looking forward to watching.

This is an interesting comment from a fan on GAGR, he has a point.

"The Lions are to blame. They opted to play in a stinking sauna in Hong Kong against a nothing team on the weekend instead of playing in Perth, Why? Simply because they are sponsored by HSBC. Dreadful Rugby.

The tour should have started in Western Australia on Saturday. The Force had the weekend cleared and would have been at full strength! Total disrespect from the B&I Lions because they snubbed the weekend fixture as originally planned."

Isn't it part of every Lions tour for the host nation / Lions management to set up a sequence of matches of less than expected intensity pre first Test?

And to generally play 'phoney war' nonsense for giggles?

I think he's forgetting about that whole money thing! Dont disagree on the match.

AFAIK was always planned to do a non-Australian continent match.

I thought it'd be in Tokyo for extra dollars but by the by.

Sure Lions could have began their Australian tour a week earlier but Australia wasn't offering an extra game. Were the Lions supposed to play one game less?

What, like Brain Fart McRae........

"MORE than a decade after raining blow after blow on the face of Irish five-eighth Ronan O'Gara, Duncan McRae still can't say for sure what triggered the infamous boilover at Allianz Stadium.
The former Waratahs utility, who was sent off and banned for seven weeks after leaving O'Gara with a bleeding wound under his left eye, can only refer to a ''running battle'' between the five-eighths during that fateful game of the British and Irish Lions tour in 2001.
''I'd love to be able to explain it, but it just sort of tipped over the edge,'' McRae said this week."

I have to admit the state of origin would be a better event than this Lions match. Not as much about it in Melbourne compared to Queensland but still a big event. The best players in the rugby league world competing against each other. Any union fan that says they can't learn anything from a state of origin game is lying. I'll be keeping an eye on both games at the same time.

GAGR has put together a compilation of punch-ups through the years.
