4th rest against the Maoris, both losses a testament to the incredible strength in depth of the NZ provincial sides weakened slightly but vs the mid week lions
tests will be won by Lions if we can dominate up front, reckon we have the bating of the front 5 and backrow! never rated Cane and think Warbs will out muscle him. Faletau vs Reid/Savea will be incredible
Haha, yeah right, keep telling yourself that
It's embarrassing bro, they arent even full strength super rugby sides the Lions are losing too.
But yeah I agree, it is a testament to the depth of NZ rugby. I also think a clear gulf has been demonstrated between the 1st and 2nd Lions teams.
Lions absolutely dominated the Maori (at least I picked that one right)!!
No way the Lions win the series against the ABs though mate, unless of course they can learn to catch and pass in the next 7 days!
In all seriousness though I have been very impressed by the main Lions side that has beaten the Crusaders and Maori. They were very dominant wins. I just dont think the same pressure that made those teams fold will work against the ABs, not for 80 minutes anyway. Im expecting most of the 3 games to be tight(ish) for 60 minutes, and then the ABs exert dominance in the last 20. Ave winning margin ~10 points. I do think the Lions are a shot at winning one match if the ABs play poorly but I'll go with a 3-0 sweep!
