    Take your points!

    The Blues are very weak against the maul, the Lions would be mad to pass up this opportunity to put the squeeze on early.

    Great maul


  • Registered Users Posts: 23,601 ✭✭✭✭ Buer


    Stander! Well controlled maul. Very formulaic but exactly the way to win this.

    Hands up, I was wrong

    Really well worked maul. Team feels much more cohesive this week.

    A few dodgy elements with that try.

    Blues should have started Bryn Gatland

    Webb's passing has been great, box kicks have been a bit too far though. Payne and Henshaw are also doing well pressing up on their midfield.

    It does, though the support and handling could still be more cohesive/slicker, early days though

    He's looking really lively, it has to be said. Going to be a great battle for the 9 jersey.

    Poor decision to take a throw to himself

    Scrum again

    Perofeta is having a right nightmare.

    So slipping in the scrum is a penalty only if you're the defending team? What's the ruling there?

    There's a TV in the office and they've put the match on (god bless them), I'm too far away to see who is playing well or pick out much detail but Lions look much the better side so far?

    Payne motm so far. Leading the way

    Generally better. Far more cohesive and dominant in the front five. Nothing spectacular but hanging onto the ball and going through phases.

    They look vulnerable in defence at times though.

    No way that was a maul. :pac:


  • Registered Users Posts: 23,601 ✭✭✭✭ Buer


    Blues blow a great opportunity trying to be clever setting up their maul. Scrum Lions on their own 5m line.

    All from Lawes taking a man in the air at a line out. Sort of thing that will cost him a spot in the test 23.

    Tend to agree. Ball was transferred to a guy who was to set up the maul but he was taken down before it happened.

    Lions getting benefit of a French referee here.


  • Registered Users Posts: 23,601 ✭✭✭✭ Buer


    Lions racking up the penalties in last few minutes for really sloppy things. Another one on halfway for offside.

    Into touch on 22.

    Yep, should have been a pen to Blues for Lions not rolling away IMO.

    Some of those offloads are insane.
