Lions Tour

(1/77) > >>

bennydorano:
First up NZ Provincial Barabarians this morning.

It divides opinion but I love the Lions Tours.

Owen Brannigan:
Good man Benny but be prepared for obtuse comments on rugby and especially the Lions.  The tour in NZ is a great sporting occasion which comes around so rarely.

tonto1888:
I like to see the Irish players doing well. Wonder how many will make the test team. Murray a shoe in? Furlong?

seafoid:
Some of the Irish greats are in this list

In fairness that was a terrible first half. If that was a football match the pundits would be calling it shocking, attacking the game generally and emphasising poor skills and defensive systems. They'd be laughing at how bad the top players from five local countries were playing and saying it proves how bad the game is locally. They'd throw out the game is finished line.

The rugby boys will brush over it and make excuses for the poor quality (some of them genuine). They will then move on very quickly to hyping up the next game. Boys will buy everything said and go on about how rugby is an attacking game and Gaelic spoiled by defensive systems even though it's a much higher scoring sport.
