That latter point is one of his biggest plus points that many seem to forget. Even if he's forgettable on the wing and FB, the added flexibility is hard to put a price on. Generally goes for 80 mins without issue, too.Good to see Daly playing in his best position - and able to cover the back 3 if needed.
Talking if being wrong, I was about Lawes, who as Julian said had the test match of his life (for most but not quite the whole game). Itoje shut the Boks up with his towering performance !How nice it is to be wrong.
I never thought the SA would fall short but tactically they did.Why they chose to kick instead of running at the lions midfield?
well done WG
a few key observations
Lawes,price,Cowan-Dickie were all outstanding.Price kicking was excellent.
priceless moment when the SA coach brought his strongest “full front row” on and they were turned and destroyed …..Oh dear …..what to do now ….
The strength of the lions bench was very noticeable.
I think WG will strengthen the midfield for the next test.
Definitely going to up the intensity even more. Boks will be stronger for sure. Gats has some good options to take that performance further still. Don’t leave your seat!Just seen the highlights - a tight game with strong performances all round by the Lions. I think Gatland picked a good starting 15. It will be tight next time too.
