LIONS WATCH: Conor Murray in driving spot for No 9 shirt

But I think Sexton is reaching a different level.. Farrell to me is massive in defence (not a fan of him btw), and gets up without much of a thought, looking for more carrying on... Sexton seems lesser in defence and seems like a it takes his all to make his tackles, and gets up looking like he's just done a round with Tyson...

Yeh there was definitely a block, but to be fair the Lions 15 - who was slightly caught out, made a piss poor attempt at a tackle, and the Lions #4 had the perfect chance to put a big hit in, and bollocksed that up completely....

...sooo, with that in mind, the Highlanders definitely deserved that try.

Seems like every option is a compromise... I'm not sure on Sextons strength in defence will be good enough for him to hold his own, or if it is I think he'll be targeted by the AB's which will either injure him or wear him down...

But I'm not sure Teo who may be strong in defence will have the experience to handle the AB's....

At least the Corbynistas didn't get into power...Rugby would probably be banned for being too 'elite'...

Who hid my safe space?!?!

You reckon the Lions will get that lucky?

I was feeling it would come down to how 'unplayed' the AB's are on the first test and then how merciful they decide to be on test 2+3....

Fair assessment, Lions tours are always an interesting experiment....

Also...I reckon the Lions fans would probably appreciate you forwarding that onto Gatland...

Oh, out of interest, what does everyone reckon about Sexton 10, Farrell 12?

I don't really know what to make of it, I mean I know England have had Ford 10, Farrell 12, but whilst I reckon it's a good attacking combination, I'm not sure whether it will stand a chance against the kiwis...well... with Sexton in rather than Ford....

Maybe Farrell is good enough in defence, but he's not a big unit like some of the other options around, so it strikes me as a strong attacking platform, but I'm not convinced the AB's are the sort of team that you can attack as comfortably as other teams. I almost have visions of american football whereby you'd bring on a 10-12 combo when attacking, but when defending you'd swap someone else in... I don't know who the kiwis will field in the midfield, but I can imagine that SBW may have a potential look in at 13, and he is a somewhat larger unit than Farrell, but I think it'd be foolish to assume that his 12 won't be any more than a typical All Black...
