Lets not get cocky,

Believe me when I say that I am all for the Lions. The All Blacks are very good side and should not be underestimated.

Same applies to the cricket. As Shane Warne said "Its a long season and if you guys when every test and every 1 day international, then I'll stand up and say fair play and well done, until then it ain't over."

But it would be nice to put the colonials back in their box for once.

I think that the lions will really have to step up their game for the first test, otherwise the all blacks will stomp a mud hole in their arrse!

The Lions are a fantastic side, with some really fantastic players, but the difference between them and the all blacks is that they (NZ) are all extremely good with their basics skills, which when compared to our sometimes pathetic basci skills, makes us lookk like school kids. Add to that the dynamic flair of carlos spencer and the power and determination of Umanga. You see what im getting at?

Up your game boys, and i have every confidence you can beat them.

I'm just sad that Chris Cussiter doesn't appear to be in the squad for the first test. I think he did really well in the games he played.

I try to explain that the Lions are a bit of "Throw Together Team". Win or lose against the All Black's, we don't do too badly against a team who train day in day out for most of the year!!!
They reckon it's our excuse when we lose etc!!! I wouldn't call it an excuse myself more of a factor, and then a bonus if we win!!!

it makes me laugh that when t All blacks loose its like a day of national morning over here.

What the kiwi's have to remember is that so far the lions havent let the A-team loose yet ( and i dont mean BA, hannibal, murdock or face).

And the teams they have been playing so far have been violent, and causing a few punch's to be thrown ( not saying its all the kiwis fault)

As for the NZ maori team, some of the guys had to be told they had the maori heritage to get them to play (so basically they brought in Ringers) to play against a very much so understrength lions team.

I believe sir clive has a few things up his sleve, and we havent heard the lions roar yet.

Kiwi's .......watch out!

A decidedly shaky performance with too many mistakes...but a win. If Henson doesn't have a place now in the 22 for Sat, then what JPR Williams said about Sir Clive is true.

Whatever his starting 15 is they are going to have to step up several gears if the result is to be in our favour. At least in today's game we were recycling the ball a damn sight quicker than the last few matches. However, we are not getting to rucks in enough numbers because the forwards are hanging out of the tight hoping to run with the ball. All this does is screw up the backs and the All Blacks will punish us severely. We must get the basics right if we are to stand a chance.

It will be nail biting stuff on Saturday!

Is there a Southern Hemisphere version of the Lions?

Could the All Blacks, Wallabies and Springboks play with each other or would they finish up knocking lumps out of their team mates?
 
#11
let's just hope "Wonderboy Jonny" sorts himself out. He may be able to kick, but his passing..........I've seen a leper with no hands pass and receive better than him. He had a case of spazzy hands last match he played!!!

Beardy,

Agreed and he seems to have lost his bottle in the tackle.

Im not exactly sure he's lost his bottle, but he's not as keen as he used to be, but that may be down to his shoulder injury that nearly ruined his career.

I hate to break this to you all but the Lions will not win. They simply aren't as good as they are arrogant. The Aussie criket team, for example can afford to be arrogant because (recent performances notwithstanding) they are bludy good. Our (NZ) cricket team OTOH, were just as arrogant yet played like shyte. Lord Woodward's boys are in grave danger of falling into that trap.
For goodness' sake boys and girls, FORTY FIVE PLAYERS, they have no excuse to not win.
Yet they still won't :lol:

(Of course, if they do, I simply drag out my British Passport :D :D :D)

As I recall the All Blacks started with a training squad of 70, ramped down to two lots of 22 for the trial - although some of the discards then went into a form of selection repechage by playing in the (30 man) NZ Maori squad. Did I mention the Junior All Blacks?

I don't think 45 is such a lot of candidates to pick a final 22 from, or play an eleven game tour with? Does anyone else, apart from the chippy ticket of leave men, sheep-shaggers, convict-descendants, arrogant Boers or rebel Virginians out there?

Muzza,

Why not mention while you are making comparisons that the All Blacks are a formed outfit of contracted players whose primary committment is to playing international rugby. Meanwhile the Lions are an ad-hoc touring team of professional club players who are released to play international rugby. Add the home advantage and then tell me that the Lions should win!

Funny that, but i seem to recall that the hard ass all blacks have wrapped their star players up in cotton wool by not allowing them to play in the build up matches. Saving them for the big match are we?

Real big tough guys...

Woohoo, three bites!!!

Okay,
Cuddles:
"As I recall the All Blacks started with a training squad of 70, ramped down to two lots of 22 for the trial - although some of the discards then went into a form of selection repechage by playing in the (30 man) NZ Maori squad. Did I mention the Junior All Blacks?"

You can mention as many people as you like, my point is that when we tour your neck of the woods we don't take all our development squads with us :p

"I don't think 45 is such a lot of candidates to pick a final 22 from, or play an eleven game tour with? Does anyone else, apart from the chippy ticket of leave men, sheep-shaggers, convict-descendants, arrogant Boers or rebel Virginians out there?"

I'm intrigued by this expression "sheep-shaggers" - please explain.

Oh, so this would be a different bunch of guys than those who regularly play for England, Ireland, Scotland and/or Wales? :?


And Agent Smith (if that's your real name):

OK, you win, we're the only people in the world who do that. :roll:



I guess my main bitch about the size of the touring party - which would apply no matter who it was - is that whenIwasaladandmilkwasfivecentsapintandwehadtowalkfifteenmiletoschoolthrougheightfootofsnow, an All Black team going "back home" :wink: or the Lions coming down here had thirty players, a coach, a doctor, a manager and, well, bugger all else. If a player was injured, well, that's why they took thirty in the first place, they didn't send half way round the world for a replacement, they just hacked it.
It seems the more they get paid, the less crap they have to put up with.
I'll end my bitter cynical history-through-rose-coloured-specatcles rant now before you all decide this internet thingy wasn't such a hot idea after all.

TTFN
Muzz.
