The first non-NZ player to feature in the most test wins is Jason Leonard, with 89. Not bad, for 114 caps
Hang on - when did GG become a New Zealander?
Good point, my bad. Second non-NZ player. The flags look very similar alright...

Itoje is on 36 wins from 51 caps putting him at 71.56% wins. Clearly on the way to GOAT status
Gotta pump up that win rate to catch Johnnos 71/92 (78.26%)

It's all deliberate to put the media spotlight on them and take the heat off the players. Oldest trick in the book - ask Jose Mourinho.

Ross Ford, Chris Paterson and Sean Lamont all lost 60+ with win rates bouncing around the 40% mark.
I was waiting for someone to bring up the Scots poorer record, you don't disappoint

The internet always finds a way to make it about dick size...
Rule 34
Side note, i only realized last night that the mascots name "BIL" is an acronym for British and Irish Lions.

Has anyone mentioned anything about a roof yet? Would have thought it would be almost instinctual for Gatland by now.
There was a small roof discussion earlier in this thread. Maybe Rassie should bring his light show to the roof again. It might throw DJ trio Curry, Navidi, and Furlong off the gameplan.

It wasn't that bad, the Watson call was BS but the rest was fine....I've seen far worse displays.

You can always pick apart games after the event. That’s poor from Rassie though. What an idiot. Maybe he should spend more time on tactics and fitness with his team!
