The Wallaby injuries from the first Test against the British & Irish Lions

probably will be used if the Lions do go on to win. but it was much the same for the lions in the last tour, losing Ferris in the warm up matches and then losing BOD and much of their forwards in that second test

Shane Williams and Christian Wade called up and on the wings vs the Brumbies

Really just seems like Gatland got in all these extras just to play this one match to avoid some injuries so close to the test matches...The lions credability took a huge blow imo with these guys being drafted in...

USA Eagle Samu Manoa's huge hit on Peter O'Mahony

The best thing that could possibly happen for global rugby would be for America and Canada to really get the popularity at home for the sport to enable it to grow to its potential...If the USA can market the sport over there and really get kids wanting to play then there is no doubt that they could easily become one of the best teams in the world..

British and Irish Lions thump Combined Country in Newcastle

Backrow was immense again...O' Brien and Tipuric both put in huge efforts and both were also effective with ball in hand...Unless Warburton steps up his game a lot it's gonna be a real shame for him to probably keep both of these players on the bench or worse...O' Driscoll, Maitland, Murray and North were also very good on the day...Both scrumhalf and backrow are going to be very difficult decisions to make as pretty much every player in those areas is playing really good rugby

Lions fight off strong challenge from the Reds to claim third tour win

Maybe not Croft but O' Brien and Heaslip certainly..but then again at least Croft managed to get on the ball a bit and get some decent runs in...

Lions fight off strong challenge from the Reds to claim third tour win

Real shame Bowe is now out of the tour..Him and north were definite starters and both played exceptionally well games yesterday...

Unfortunately Warburton and the entire backrow were pretty much anonymous for the entire match...Warburton also missed a crucial tackle which would have stopped the reds first try..Heaslip, o brien and Croft were all much better and more involved than those who played yesterday (albeit against much lesser opposition) but I really can't see Sam being left out even if there are better players there..or at least players playing better right now..

Lions prop Cian Healy cleared of biting scrumhalf Brett Sheehan

More likely due it probably being hammered into the squad all week about not reacting and getting lured into anything which may lead to bans etc...After the amount of press the Farrell incident got all last week I would definitely believe that to be the case..Also Healy is actually quite calm on the pitch (most of the time)..there have been times of course where he has been too "excited" i.e. the stamp on Cole, but other than that i really can't remember him in any sort of trouble or fights during a match..

Brian O'Driscoll answers the fans' call with one year contract extension

As much as I want the man to play forever, I highly doubt he will make it through another season with much game time..he was out for huge chunks of this season, basically until christmas...

Definitely one of the greatest players of all time and certainly one of irelands greatest ever sportsmen but he's going to be a sore man in his old age given how much he's been through and will likely go through again during this lions tour and next season with club and country...
