LIONS FEAR TRICKY WALLABY BACKS, LYNAGH Saturday, 29 June 2013: World Cup-winning five-eighth Michael Lynagh believes there have been sleepless nights in the British and Irish Lions camp worrying about the Wallabies' three-pronged playmaking threat at Etihad Stadium. Australia's former record-breaking pointscorer, Lynagh is confident Robbie Deans' men will take the huge three-Test series to a decider in Sydney next weekend after overcoming the backline carnage of their 23-21 First Test loss. Despite losing pivotal back Christian Lealiifano in the opening exchanges, as well as Pat McCabe and Berrick Barnes by the 46-minute mark, the home side would have stolen a win at the death with a successful Kurtley Beale penalty attempt at Suncorp Stadium. Lealiifano's recovery from a head knock allows the Wallabies to carry out their original plans of using the inside centre to pull the string in attack. With five-eighth James O'Connor, who struggled in his second Test start at No.10, and fullback Kurtley Beale also ...
A dazzling two-try Test debut from Israel Folau failed to save the Wallabies from a nailbiting loss to the British and Irish Lions in front of a record crowd at Suncorp Stadium in Brisbane on Saturday.
QUEENSLAND Origin stars are concerned about the state of the surface at Suncorp Stadium after seeing the turf heavily chopped up during the Wallabies' Test match loss to the British and Irish Lions last night. Stadium officials have just four days to repair the surface before Origin II on Wednesday, but Queensland players are planning to wear the longest studs possible based upon the evidence they saw on television last night. The Maroons were stunned to see just how slippery the surface was for their rugby Test match and Broncos players within the Queensland team have told teammates the ground is not in good condition. "I saw a scrum at one stage where the Lions were pushing the Wallabies back and they were just sliding and those boys wear long tags so it looked pretty slippery out there," Maroons and Broncos forward Matt Gillett said. "It hasn't been too good this year the turf out there. It's been a lot like that slick bit of mud and it's a bit different. I will definitely be wearing the long tags.

Kick Off at a capacity Suncorp Stadium as the First Test between Australia and the British & Irish Lions gets underway. The Wallabies have a great record in Brisbane, however the Lions have never lost in 7 Tests in the Queensland capital, so something has to give. Huge test for the Wallabies as this powerful Lions team will look to dominate the hosts from the set piece. It's been 12 years in the making, and this whole series should be a wonderful spectacle as the Wallabies look to retain the Tom Richards Trophy. Meanwhile at Campbelltown Stadium, the Canberra Raiders lead Wests Tigers 6-4 just inside 30 minutes, with Sandor Earl crossing for the visitors after David Nofoaluma scored the opening try for the hosts.

Lions Latest Scots miss out as Gatland unveils first Lions Test team Scots Stuart Hogg, Richie Gray and Sean Maitland have all missed out on a place in the Lions side for Saturday's opening Test against Australia. Maitland is a substitute, but his Scottish colleagues are sidelined. There is a surprise at loosehead prop, where British and Irish Lions coach Warren Gatland revealed that Alex Corbisiero's superior scrummaging resulted in his selection ahead of Mako Vunipola. The rampaging Vunipola was expected to feature at the Suncorp Stadium after impressing during his four starts on tour, but he lost out to his England rival. Corbisiero was a late arrival Down Under, re-routing from England's tour of Argentina after Cian Healy and Gethin Jenkins were forced home through injury, and has started only one match, the 64-0 rout of the Combined Country XV. But his 94 minutes of rugby for the Lions convinced Gatland that he is a safer option to start against the Wallabies with Vunipola providing second-half firep ...
