That was special. Absolutely incredible. When they pulled it back to 19-16 I though they were going keep going and win by about 10. Good use of the subs by Gatland. Brought on Murray for Phillips very early and it provided that bit of spark when we really needed it. Faletau was an absolute monster, took half their team to take him down every time. Really doesn't make sense that he wasn't in the side for the first 2 tests. Davies was outstanding after 2 farily ordinary games. Amazing how much difference moving from 12 to 13 makes. It's not like playing on the wing or centre midfield in football, it really shouldn't be that different moving 1 place along the line but clearly it is. Corbisiero was also brilliant. A big loss last week and he really is quite athletic for a prop isn't he?

What an incredible player Halfpenny is. Should be called Billiondollar surely. Best player in the world at the moment?

For the second test the Aussie comm. is calling the the lLons "the Welsh"

I heard that.

Sadly, I went to bed after 20 minutes - I'd been up since 1 am, and my little eyes couldn't say open any longer.

Nice to see the lions dished out a mauling this morning though cmon yeah

Any of you kiwis watching the match? England just scored @ 1.24 pm. Terrific game so far, fast and attacking.
6-0 so far
