Great game. Gripping stuff. Plenty of running. Did not get bogged down in scrums. 4 great tries.
As predicted Foloua was a sensation but Ioane was a bit quiet - he is most damaging in broken play. North a sensation - they'll try not to kick to him again....
Aussie pack aimed up and got across the gain line all night. Lions pack held em out but seemed to be spooked by the ref's breakdown interpretation. Aussies know this ref's approach from Super Rugby so maybe that was an advantage.
Disappointed but pleased with the performance - given we had three backs carried off...and still could have won.
Well done Lions ! See ya in Melbourne
It was a good game of Wallabies, improved a lot on defense compared to last year. In the first half they defended well except for the try of North. Your scrum still has some problems but they can improve. No doubt if Wallabies maintains this level can win the Rugby Championship this year.
James Horwill, Michael Hooper, Will Genia, AAC, James O'Connor and Israel Folau will be the basis of this team
Good luck Aussies!
I think they'd have to lift their game considerably to win the Rugby Championship this year...
POC out for the rest of the tour with a fractured arm. Gutted for the big lad and a blow for the Lions.
awww man, thinking about it again - can you believe there's a last decisive scrum at the very end of the match, and the Wallabies actually win it against the Lions (!!!?!?!?!) and miss the penalty for victory ?!!.....
I mean seriously, no one else but Beale, really ?!....
If Corbisiero had to pull out of the tour now, this would be a MASSIVE blow for the Lions.
The difference in the scrum after he and Adam Jones went off was pretty eye-catching.
I think Gatland is going to have to consider leaving Corbisiero and Jones on for the whole game.
Funny no one is kicking up a fuss about it now, compared in that club match. Can't imagine why
