Real shame Bowe is now out of the tour..Him and north were definite starters and both played exceptionally well games yesterday...

Unfortunately Warburton and the entire backrow were pretty much anonymous for the entire match...Warburton also missed a crucial tackle which would have stopped the reds first try..Heaslip, o brien and Croft were all much better and more involved than those who played yesterday (albeit against much lesser opposition) but I really can't see Sam being left out even if there are better players there..or at least players playing better right now..

Apparently Bowe could be back in two weeks, so for the second and third tests. We can only hope. I think the front row has been seriously weakened with the loss of Healy, and Bowe is another player where there's nobody else that can seamlessly fill his position on the tour, in my opinion. Zebo is all right but he's no Bowe, same goes for Maitland, and I think Cuthbert is good running in a straight line but doesn't offer much more than that. Get well soon Tommy!

LOL Croft! You mean that guy who stood on the wing all match?

Maybe not Croft but O' Brien and Heaslip certainly..but then again at least Croft managed to get on the ball a bit and get some decent runs in...

I don't know how I feel about forwards who stay on the wings. I remember Marcus Horan used to do the same for Munster. He'd very often end up on the wing and got an inordinate amount of tries for a prop as a result. It looks impressive and like the player is getting his hands on the ball and doing lots of work, but if you think about it, it means that there's some little winger infield having to do all the dirty work and trying to protect rucks against people twice his size. I'd rather the forward did that and left the running and try-scoring to the backs.

Did you not see Dan Lydiate chopping everything on the park as well? The man was like a machine going through players out there, although Warbs and Faletau were average, atm I fancy Lydiate, Tipuric and probably Heaslip as my starting back row

Loved the 'try' that Warburton almost scored. North looked quality. Great work from Warburton to stay with him and he was unlucky not to score, but great Reds defence. I also thought the first try of the game was a beauty, great score. Hope that guy remembers that for many, many years to come.
