The Lions need to learn how to finish a chance, they had 5 and the ABs had 4 chances.

They converted them all the Lions were 2 from 5.

I think it will have a moderating effect on leagues such as Yorkshire, Lancashire, the Midlands or in the South Rast where player payments are rife.

Up here it is a lot less prevalent, maybe some DN clubs will start to compete at level 6.

Better change the game plan then. I thought there was far too much kicking from Connor Murray, just gives the AB's a chance to regain possession in my book. The box kick is a very useful tool but used sparingly when circumstances are right.

Yes, uncanny stuff, Slam! Well done indeed. Renegade's 35-12 was damn good too.
The Lions showed that they can compete against the world's best on their own, favourite paddock and that those who predicted a horrible thrashing across all 3 tests were far too premature after a stuttering start by jetlagged players who were comparative strangers at the time. It reminded me of the old hag soothsayer on 'Up Pompeii': ''Whooooa is me! Whoooooooaaa is me!''
How fantastic it would be if they could nick a win next week to set up an enormous finale.

Whatever 15 were picked there will all ways be an opposite argument and I hope all those who disagree speak now or hold their peace as hindsight is a great thing. Otoje should be in and Stander on the bench in place of sliced bread but all in all a good 15 and bench. Lions Lions!!! Heart ruling head NZ 17 Lions 19

This is big problem in the heart of Yorkshire and Lancashire rugby league areas, since the acceptance of mix codes where league players were allowed to play both codes, valuable to to closes union clubs who are known to pay, they did and still attract players looking for money. Unfortunately the RFU will never stop the clubs from paying.

It's absolutely impossible to predict as there are too many unknowns, but as everyone else on here is seeing the glass half-empty:

NZ 23 Lions 27.

So sad.......a rarity in sport these days. A very tough and hard competitor but always had a smile on his face and never was far away from a pint or a joke, great man!

Lets hope and pray he stays well!
