Kane Barrett gets straight red card but cited for separate stamp

Looks to me as if he only gets the guys shoulders. Didn't look like much to me but hey...

Brian O'Driscoll dropped for series decider against the Wallabies

That is true. It's a shame as I thought the Lions would batter the Aussies this year and seeing how close it's going to be is not what I had in mind. Had Wales actually beaten Australia in recent times I wouldn't be so worried but the fact that we've come close a couple of times and still not made it is the worrying factor. Ah well, the Lions will still have my support on Saturday.

Also, rugby08 I'm not defending Gatland. I think he's made the wrong decisions. I'm just saying we can't judge until the end of the match. That's all.

Fair enough. I'm saying, we can't really judge until the final whistle. Also, as I said above, who really cares what I think.

Oh no I agree. I'm just saying I think that is why he's been picked as he is a better scrummager than Tom Youngs. Youngs is better in every other aspect of the game though, hence why I would have stuck with him.

Let's face facts here. If the Lions lose, Gatland will be strung up and never allowed near the Lions again and...ah well. It's not like the Lions win every series anyway.

However! If the Lions win, he will be praised as a genius and still probably not coach the Lions again.

How about we wait and see how the final test goes before berating/praising players. For all we know, Mike Phillips could have an absolute barnstormer and destroy the Aussies and George North could have a shocker. We can't judge these decisions until the fat lady sings.

That being said, I would have left BOD in. But hey, I'm not the Lions coach or an international Rugby player so who really cares what the heck I think.

Scrummaging power I reckon. Would have personally stuck with Tom Youngs as he's been outstanding but I reckon they'll chuck him on as a mental ball carrying replacement.

Wallaby skipper James Horwill cleared and free to play in deciding Lions Test

Seems to me that if the IRB appealed the decision, then there was clearly something wrong what with them being the rule makers and all. But ah well, nothing we can do and no point dwelling. Plus I like Horwill as a player and doubt there was any malice in it.

Let's just bring on the third test and hope tis a cracker!

No. But still very amusing.

USA Eagles have two players red carded in loss to Italy in Houston

Fair enough. I suppose they were reckless tackles and were dangerous but I still feel that a red is a harsh decision. But then again I've always been against the red cards and like to see them as little as possible.
To the letter of the law I can see that these could be red but I feel a yellow card would have been good enough. Maybe even give a yellow and then warn both sides that any more would result in a red.
