Hi 

I thought it was time to start one of these. Not sure how many of you are Rugby Fans like me, but I always find discussions interesting. 

I was a little surprised to see this posted today, I'll be looking for a backup plan. If Sky make this a Pay to Watch Match I'll be furious.

You know, if you look at the team they picked for the Lions against the Blues, with all due respect to the talent at the Blues, you could well imagine a 50 point hiding being given to the Blues. I am glad I am not out there! 


If both teams play to their potential, I expect a pretty healthy contest for 55 minutes then I would expect the Lions should just Overpower the blues, esp up front.


Of course, as we have already seen, that may not be the case. 


I recall when Ireland played the Crusaders a few years ago, I expected a close match, but in fact the Crusaders played so badly, I was embarassed. In reality it was simply a case of the pressure put on by a test match side. 


 



Lol what? 50 points on the blues? Name a super side that has put that much on them ever. Won't happen.

In fact I expect the blues to put 10-20+ on the lions
