The British and Irish Lions win the series 2-1 after third Test rout

Do I detect a little bit of sour grapes????? Who would you suggest didn`t play (Other than one of the centres = I seem to be seeing a bit of a trend from certain individuals across the Irish sea or over the river Severn!!!) Maybe Adam Jones?? who along with Corbisiero did a superb job at scrum time, The Hibbard - Youhg call was always going to be tight (although I felt Hibbard fronted up well and Young came on at the right time), Alun Wyn Played with a massive heart and led from the front Lydiate and Falatau (with O`Brian) did a great job and completely outclassed the Australian back row (But I felt you could have included Tip`s before the game), Phillips? not sure, I think Murrey would have been the better call, Then there are the centres!!!! (I know BOD is regarded as a national treasure in Ireland , but his form during the second test???? ) I accept that Roberts was coming back from injury, but Davies was (and proved) that he was the form 13 On tour, You could object to North and Halfpenny!!!, but I think the most Anti Welsh individuals could not argue with their selections. Gatlands job was coach AND Select a side to win a Lions test series!! Job done I think. There is no room for sentiment in modern professional sport
