As you say, what might have been.Oh dear once again so near and so far. I thought Russell played well when he came on, pleased Wyn Jones did OK. The Lions had their chances but did not take them. Injuries have played their part, would the squad have been different with Tipuric & North?? Still can't understand what the ref saw when the Lions had a scrum on the SA 5 yard line??? Did anybody see anything wrong? Disappointed Liam Williams missed that tackle. Ah well a load of 6 Nations and a World Cup before the next Lions tour. A more enjoyable game this week than last week!
PS: I was rather chuffed to see the Lions fanzone pictures on Sky TV with Scott Quinell from Llandaff RFC, Cardiff a club i played for 2 seasons when i lived in Cardiff. Llandaff RFC (llandaffrugby.com) "The Llandaff boys are on the p*ss again"
Not enough points scored when on top in the 1st half ( Adams ouside Williams ). Couldnt get the tempo back in the 2nd.
Fair play to SA for sticking at it.
A few refs decisions that could have gone either way, but no glaring biggies. Though I thought some scrum decisions were a bit harsh especially as he had reset a few.
vdMs best game. He came off his wing looking for work. Where was that in the first 2?
Russell did well, especially not having played for 5 weeks.
Think most of the lions issues came in selection rather than in the games.
Ah well, only 4 years to go.
