I wonder how many NZ footy fans had the opportunity to read the sort of newspaper articles that the current Coach of the Lions had to endure during the lead up to the 3rd Wallabies v Lions Test in Sydney last week. Just in case you missed them have a read of one, written by a Mr Oliver Brown of the Telegraph last Thursday, who presumably is now writing for the Country Womans Weekly along with the benefit of advise from his Editor at the Telegraph, occupying the next office in "Bourton on the Water"! Enjoy! I will then put up the link page to his fan page! By Oliver Brown The Telegraph Warren Gatland's selection of 10 Welshmen in starting XV a brazen insult to very concept of British and Irish Lions It is, by any measurement, a preposterous decision. Ten Welshmen starting for a team labouring under the misnomer of the British and Irish Lions? Why does Warren Gatland not just jettison fly-half Jonny Sexton for Neil Jenkins, his kicking coach, and have done with it? It is also a brazen insult to the very c . ...
The British and Irish Lions have won the final Test in Australia, courtesy of tries by Alex Corbisiero, Jonny Sexton, Jamie Roberts and George North. Leigh Halfpenny converted 3 conversions and scored 5 penalties. :)
The British and Irish Lions ended a 16-year wait for a series win with a stunning second-half demolition of Australia in a pulsating decider in Sydney. Leading 19-10 at half-time via an early Alex Corbisiero try and four Leigh Halfpenny penalties, the Lions roared to victory with three scores inside 12 minutes. Jonny Sexton, George North and Jamie Roberts all crossed in a breathless spell to make it a record points tally against the Wallabies
Lions break Aussie hearts Sydney - The British and Irish Lions claimed their first series win since 1997 when they overpowered Australia 41-16 in the third Test on Saturday to seal a 2-1 victory. The Lions were quick out of the blocks at the Olympic Stadium with prop Alex Corbisiero crossing for a second minute try and fullback Leigh Halfpenny kicking 12 points to open up a 19-3 lead after 26 minutes. Australia fought back with James O'Connor scoring just before halftime and inside centre Christian Leali'ifano kicking the home side to within three points at 19-16 with 25 minutes remaining. But the Lions finally found the attacking rhythm that they lacked in the second Test loss and flyhalf Jonny Sexton, winger George North and centre Jamie Roberts crossed for second half tries as the Lions rode out comfortable winners. "It's pretty indescribable. There was a lot said about selection in the week...but I think we proved the Northern Hemisphere can do pretty well," Lions captain Alun Wyn Jones said in a pitc ...
RUGBY: Ireland wing Simon Zebo will make his British and Irish Lions debut against New South Wales Waratahs on Saturday. Zebo joined the squad as cover on Tuesday and goes straight into a strong side containing up to a dozen likely Test contenders. With the first Test against Australia on 22 June, George North (hamstring), Brian O'Driscoll (groin) and Manu Tuilagi (shoulder) are all not risked. But fly-half Jonny Sexton has been passed fit to start. The Irishman will line up alongside likely Test half-back partner Mike Phillips
A personal haul of 24 points by Wales full back Leigh Halfpenny ensured the British and Irish Lions coasted to a crushing 69-17 victory over Western Force in Perth. The Lions ran riot at Patersons Stadium with match-day captain Brian O'Driscoll leading the rout by scoring a brace among the nine tries. Halfpenny slotted over nine conversions and added two penalties with a faultless display of kicking from the tee. The Lions led 27-3 at the break and were never seriously threatened by an under-strength Force outfit. Halfpenny got the ball rolling after just two minutes with his first shot at goal before Irish pivot Jonny Sexton dummied his way over the tryline to score the 2013 Lion's first try on Australian soil. Halfpenny converted to put the Lions out 10-0. The Lions dominated possession for the next 20 minutes but were repelled by stubborn defence. Eventually Brett Sheehan pegged the score back to 10-3 on 32 minutes. O'Driscoll outpaced the Force defence and touched down in the corner before England fla ...
We think Jonny Sexton and had a falling out over fresh pillows on the flight to Oz:
Brian O'Driscoll will captain the British & Irish Lions against Western Force on Wednesday as one of eight Ireland players named in a completely changed starting XV. O’Driscoll, playing in his fourth Lions tour, will lead the side in the continued absence of Wales’ RBS 6 Nations Grand Slam winning captain Sam Warburton, who is recovering from a knee problem. Gatland has made 15 changes to the side that started the 59-8 victory over the Barbarians in Hong Kong on Saturday, ensuring Paul O’Connell, captain that day, is rested. Along with O’Driscoll, Tommy Bowe, Jonny Sexton, Connor Murray, Cian Healy, Rory Best, Sean O’Brien and Jamie Heaslip have all been selected to start. For O’Driscoll it is a return to Perth, the city where he started his first game for the Lions at full-back in 2001. “I am a bit more comfortable playing at 13 this time," he said. "It is very exciting. I haven't lost any of the buzz about being involved with the Lions. It is still a very special place to be. “Now we hav ...
Will Ryan Jones become an outside bet for the British & Irish Lions captaincy if he can lead Wales to wins over Scotland and England? Wales have brought Paul James, Alun Wyn Jones and Sam Warburton into their pack for Saturday’s game at Murrayfield as both teams go in search of third successive wins. Euan Murray back in Scottish front row and Duncan Weir gets first start at No 10. Ireland, meanwhile, have Cian Healy and Mike McCarthy coming back into their pack, Fergus McFadden taking over from injured Craig Gilroy. No No 10 named as yet, but Jonny Sexton ruled out and Paddy Jackson battling hamstring strain.
