DEANS' FOCUS SOLELY ON LIONS CLASH Friday, 5 July 2013: The heat is on but under-fire Wallabies coach Robbie Deans says his focus is solely on Australia's series-deciding Test with the British and Irish Lions on Saturday night. Former Wallabies coach Eddie Jones on Thursday claimed off-field ill-discipline within the Test team's playing ranks was undermining Deans' tenure and placing his job in serious jeopardy. Jones believes the Brumbies' former World Cup-winning Springboks coach Jake White or Queensland Reds mentor Ewen Mckenzie are in line to succeed Deans, who is off contract at the end of the year. "There's continuing problems off the field of ill-discipline and I think that's something that needs to get sorted out and it's obviously not going to happen under Robbie's regime," Jones told ABC Grandstand. "The thing the Australian side is missing is not ability but probably the discipline and consistency of preparation. "I think if they get those two areas right for the World Cup in 2015, they're a gr ...
Will Stuart Hogg’s Lions tour be a wasted opportunity? Posted on Jun 19, 2013 When Stuart Hogg was announced as a British and Irish Lion by Andy Irvine on April 30, fans both of a Scottish and neutral persuasion would have been right in thinking the 20-year-old had been included thanks to his displays in this year’s RBS 6 Nations. The Glasgow Warriors full-back was in scintillating form in the opening two matches against England and Italy in particular and had secured the 15 shirt for Scotland by the end of the tournament as well as offering a much needed ray of light in terms of attacking rugby. It is therefore disappointing to see Hogg’s talents being wasted on this Lions tour. Many, myself included, believed Hogg – albeit behind Leigh Halfpenny in the pecking order – could have provided a serious challenge for the 15 jersey given the opportunity. Hogg has had two chances at 15 so far; one against the Barbarians and then the Queensland Reds. His performance in the former saw him draw plaudits ...
MELBOURNE, June 14 (Reuters) - Former England coach Clive Woodward has continued his war of words with Australian rugby for throwing 'weak' tour teams at the British and Irish Lions following their 64-0 drubbing of the Combined Country side on Tuesday. Woodward, who coached the Lions on their 2005 tour of New Zealand, said the tourists could take "virtually nothing" out of the match in Newcastle and slammed the semi-professional Country side's players for smiling after the heavy loss. "I have never seen an Australian team celebrate because they had lost a match by fewer than 100 points - the smiles on their faces were simply bizarre," Woodward fumed in his column in the Daily Mail. "As a nation with such sporting pedigree - who pride themselves on their reputation as tough, hard competitors - I could not believe the jubilation and high fives after they had not even scored a point. Woodward said the Lions' tough 22-12 win over the Queensland Reds last Saturday was a great advertisement for Australian rugby ...

Best of the Weekend: Lions tested, England cruise Posted on Jun 10, 2013 Lions battle to hard-fought victory in Queensland On a jam-packed weekend of international rugby, you could be forgiven for missing the odd fixture here or there, but if there was one game that should have been set in stone in your diary, it was the Queensland Reds playing host to the British and Irish Lions. Though the Lions eventually won 22-12, the game was anything but plain sailing, and gave Warren Gatland’s squad exactly the kind of test they needed if they are to be prepared for the Wallabies in just under two weeks’ time. The game wasn’t all good news however, as Tommy Bowe broke a bone in his hand, and is now a major doubt for the rest of the tour, with fellow Irish international Simon Zebo being called up as cover. A try for Ben Youngs and a flawless kicking performance from the tee for Owen Farrell were enough to secure victory for the Lions, with the latter easing some concerns over his place in the squad, showing m ...
Australia confirm Queensland Reds lock James Horwill as captain for the three-Test series against the British & Irish
Another Lion bows out of tour The British and Irish Lions have suffered yet another injury blow, with Irish winger Tommy Bowe set to undergo the knife on a broken hand. Bowe picked up the injury in the Lions' 22-12 victory over the Queensland Reds on Saturday night, and coach Warren Gatland said he would miss the remainder of the tour. "According to the medics he'll probably need an operation," he said. "I think you can deduce from this that he'll play no further part. I would say that's it as far as Tommy is concerned." Gatland was in no doubt as to the significance of the loss. "The experience he brings, and being able to play right wing, left wing, centre and full back, means he is a huge loss for us. He slotted in well on the left wing tonight. "If you think about the two guys we are bringing out in terms of replacements they are absolutely quality players. If Alex Corbisiero hadn't been injured then he would have been in the mix and Ryan Grant has had an excellent season as well." The latest setback ...
The British and Irish Lions faced their toughest challenge of the tour to date as the Queensland Reds threatened to upset the tourists in Brisbane on Saturday. The tempo changed in the second half however, and the Lions came away 22-12 winners.
British Irish Lions Alex Corbisiero arrived in Brisbane today after a five-flight, two-day trip and declared he'd "do it all again" tomorrow so he could join the British & Irish Lions. He was called up friom the England tour in South America to take over from Cian Healy, who is returning home after injuring his ankle in Wednesday night's win over the Western Force, and will be joined by another newcomer, Scottish prop Ryan Grant, later today after he was recruited to take over from Gethin Jenkins. Jenkins, on his third tour with the Lions, pulled up in training on Friday as he prepared to make his first start of the 125th annviersary tour and has been ruled out of the rest of the trip due to his recurring calf muscle problem. He will return home with Healy. Corbisiero went from Salta in Argentina to Buenos Aires, Santiago in Chile, Auckland, Sydney and finally Brisbane where he met up with his new squad mates ahead of this evening's match against the Queensland Reds. "It was a long journey but I'm not com ...
Queensland Reds v British and Irish Lions: Preview and Prediction Posted on Jun 7, 2013 Two games in and the Lions have two wins under their belt. Yet to truly be tested, however, this weekend’s fixture against the Queensland Reds provides a much stiffer challenge for the tourists. The Reds are second on the Australian log in Super Rugby, and aside from their seven players currently on Wallaby duty they have named as strong a team as they possibly can. It is set to be the toughest game for the Lions to date. British and Irish Lions Gatland continues to rotate his squad, and as a result we will see some new combos taking shape. The most intriguing is probably, once again, in the centres, where Manu Tuilagi plays his second game in four days alongside Jonathan Davies, who showed some nice touches in Hong Kong. Davies is at 12 and Tuilagi at 13, which intriguingly means Roberts, Tuilagi and Davies will all have started at inside centre after Saturday – is Gatland looking at who is the best man to partner ...
