2nd Lions test

Last week went pretty much to plan. Halfpenny kicked well, Australia didn't. Sexton proved that with a decent outside half Oz are vulnerable. And the winger I picked to score was the only winger on the pitch who didn't. Fuck.

Onto this week and the Lions have made five changes. Phillips, who was poor in the first test, is dropped and Youngs comes in. Personally. I think he will do really well. Parling is in for the injured O'Connell which is a massive loss. Bowe replaces Cuthbert who can feel a little aggrieved having done nothing wrong in the first test. Vunipola replaces the injured Corbisiero and Lydiate starts at Blind side. Apart from POC's absence I'm not too worried by any of those changes.

Bets wise, Israel Folau at 9/4 with Ladbrokes to score a try anytime looks huge. He scored a wonderful brace last week and if he finds himself in any sort of space I can see him doing some damage. I've also had some of the 20/1 on Skybet for a draw with the handicap of Australia +3. Basically, Lions 23 - Oz 20 would equal a draw.

Can definitely see another close one, hopefully the game wont be won by a missed kick like last week but in all honesty, it probably will.



Laters.
