    Fearing the worst at the moment. The Lions have no continuity whatsoever and we are most definitely losing the kicking game as well as being beaten at the breakdown. The line out is not really functioning and can't see where we are going to get back into this. Maybe the bench?

    Why are we not competing at the breakdown? Every time we go to ground, the Brumbies are all over us. When they go to ground, Matt Stevens is the only one fighting for the ball.... And that is very worrying!!!

    Predictably aimless. Hard to be too critical of individuals in the back line even if they have been awful.

    But the pack shouldn't have any excuses. Rory Best proving Gatland made the right call in initially leaving him at home.

    We are lucky to only be 5 behind
    Tom Tucker: In local news, a sexy new trend has emerged at James Woods High.

    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."

    No surprise really. O'Brien and Tipuric are both looking for a loose game rather than do the grunt. Which is where Warburton is so good. Hopefully people can see what a difference Warburton makes now.

    The lineout is just awful. I put it down to Best really. His throwing is rank.

    The backs are just a scratch barbarians team.....no idea what anyone else is doing.

    The only guys putting themselves about are the locks.
    "Lets be clear about the 6m first and foremost. The 6m is not for player release. They use that in their statements, but if you look at our Participation Agreement signed in 2009, there is a split in there about what player release is. Out of the 6m, 2.7m is a core grant. Another 2.4m is to keep the non-Welsh qualified player quota down under an agreed limit. Player release is about less than 1.5m, so don't be misled by statements that say 6m is being paid for player release."

    Can't remember a lions lineout performance as bad as this

    Pack changes make an immediate difference.
