Did you have to go on a course to learn how to talk such a load of complete arse or did it come naturally. I suppose when O'Driscoll absolutely minced Roussow in the 2nd Lions Test in Pretoria he was being a fairy?
Totally agree and what's interesting about that particular episode is the early signs of soccer player behaviour from Fillol in the way he writhed on the ground like he had been shot. I suppose we should have seen this coming.
hard to see who's really putting their hands up for the Lions Test team on the basis of those 3 matches. Some big names going to be left behind in departures - Ashton, Heaslip, possibly Kearney ... Looks like being a pretty young squad too if it's going to be dominated by the English lads. BOD will be tour captain though. »
All - I wonder whether Healy had taken up where both sets of Welsh and Irish forwards had left off the week before when there were numerous incidents of robust, old fashioned cleaning out. Personally, I think a fella lying on the wrong side deliberately slowing possession deserves almost anything they get (I wouldn't advocate a stamp on the head though) and certainly when I played loosie I knew what to expect if I did. Healy's not a dirty player but the suspension is fair as certainly in today's game the old fashioned rucking has gone.
totally agree about Earls - would definitely go with Darren Cave at 12. He's been so solid for Ulster this season. He might not be the most electrifying runner but then again when did Darce last make a meaningful line break for Ireland
