They're cowbells. It's kinda their thing up in the Waikato.

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.

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.

Lions make five changes, Wallabies receive fitness boost ahead of 2nd Test

It'll be Croft, he was named as second row cover for the Rebels game. Don't know how much he has played there; some Tigers fans might be able to she'd some light on that?

Any truth in this nonsense that Horwill is going to be re-cited next week? I thought he was lucky to escape unscathed but surely the decision should be final? Bad form from the IRB on that one me thinks.

The Brumbies upset the touring Lions with historic victory in Canberra

Hogg hit the post with two of his attempts. Farrell slotted his from memory.

The British and Irish Lions power past the Western Force in Perth

Well, the funny thing about the situation is that the Force should WANT to play the Lions. Think about it, it’s a lucrative game (more lucrative than the Waratahs game will be at the weekend, I’m willing to bet), only happens once every 12 years and it brings some exposure to them for fans in the NH. Whilst I agree, the scheduling is not favourable to them (four day turnaround); they will have played only two games in seven weeks. Not exactly taxing!

My main beef is that I feel sorry for any of the players who would have liked to take part that may have missed out. Looking forward to the Reds game.

"Playing against The British & Irish Lions is a once in a career type opportunity, so to be running out in front of a sold-out Suncorp Stadium crowd on Saturday night will be an experience these 23 players will never forget," Reds Director of Coaching Ewen McKenzie said.
