    Roberts is having a bit of a shocker so far, turned over the ball at almost every possession.

    Its customary for the backs & forwards to swap positions at half time if the score's over 50.

    C'mon Lions, be good sports.

    Ignoring the all too easy running of the backs, tipuric man of the first half. So much sharper than warbs was.

    Yes but totally different opposition. Hogg is playing well as is Maitland. Not impressed with Roberts or either of the 2nd rows yet. Also, Hibbard needs to sort his throwing out.

    Between 2 hookers and 3 second rows the lineout remained shaky throughout. Something to work on at least. Thought the jumpers were very slow to get in the air or maybe the hookers were throwing a fraction early.

    Scrum got a lot weaker when the replacement props came on.

    In the end, quite embarrassing. An awful, sloppy second half performance, with more players seemingly playing themselves out of contention than playing themselves in. Such a shame, because the first half was decent with some slick skills and clinical finishing.

    Too many players playing for individual glory rather than as a team.

    Hogg looks a natural 10, his decision making was impressive and I would expect to see him playing there more for club and country. Still don't want him anywhere near the Lions test team mind.

    Hard to rate the players given the standard of opposition, but for me:

    Corbs 7 / Grant 5
    Hibbard 6 / Best 6
    Cole 6 / Stevens 4
    Gray 5 / AWJ 6
    Evans 5
    O'Brien 7
    Tipuric 8
    Heaslip 7 / Faletau 6
    Murray 5 / Phillips 6
    Hogg 8
    North 8 / Halfpenny 6
    Roberts 4 / J Davies 7
    BOD 8
    Cuthbert 6
    Maitland 7

    Diane Simmons: That's right, Tom. It appears that students have taken to having ear sex in lieu of traditional intercourse.

    Tom Tucker: Over 200 reports of ear sex have been confirmed so far, prompting a new slogan: "Once you go black, you go deaf."

    I thought Maitland went really well today and must now be in contention for a test spot
