Rene Ranger shows the finger after high tackle by Bundee Aki

I can't think of a reason why he would flip off the linesman on the far side of the field, it had to be aimed at a Chief. He also does it before any decision is made by the ref so I don't think he's looking for a card necessarily...

Yeah, it's a bit disappointing from Ranger but I'm not going to lose sleep over it.

Kane Barrett gets straight red card but cited for separate stamp

Anyone else find it ironic that it was the same referee as the Lions First Test? Was the Horwill incident, and the subsequent spotlight in the media, weighing on Mr Pollock's mind?

Montage of Amazing Lions Test series in Australia, plus WIN a 2013 Lions jersey

Top three:

1. Halfpenny's great try against the 'Tahs.
2. Genia's class display in the First Test, particularly the creation of Folau's first try. He's simply the best!
3. BOD finally gets a series win after the fourth time asking. I think the controversy of dropping him will be forgotten about and he certainly played his part in the first two tests.

Gavin Henson knocked out by punch from new Bath team-mate

He's had quite a few chances at this stage. I don't blame him for getting punched. I do blame him for getting up in the face of a bloke with a handy right jab. He was asking for it.

Brian O'Driscoll dropped for series decider against the Wallabies

I don't know about "out performed"... BOD had a significantly superior tackle count with none missed; Davies slipped up a couple of times. Running meters were about parity. I know stats only tell a part of the story... I don't think I'd say one was much better than the other.

Ha, that didn't take long!!

Brian O'Driscoll dropped for series decider against the Wallabies

The first thing that I noted with the line up is the lack of leaders in the side. Warbs and POC can't be picked for obvious reasons, but to take BOD and Heaslip out, both of whom have captained at the highest level, seems strange to me. All credit to AWJ who is a very experienced leader in his own right but I'm left asking myself, "Is one enough?"

I'm disappointed for O'Driscoll but I rate the two men selected in the centre. On the other hand, I'm skeptical about Tom Youngs being dropped. I think the line out will suffer as a result.

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

Didn't hear about that one. Google wasn't forthcoming with any info either. It really puts this incident into perspective.
