Well, 21 – 3 isn’t a good result now is it? And it looks like three players are now ruled out of the tour. Biggest blow being O’Driscoll in the 1st minute. He’ll be a loss, but even if he’d been on the pitch for the whole match I doubt he could’ve made a huge difference to the end result.
I didn’t see the match. I’m not shelling out extra for Sky Sports. So I’m not so sure how valid the Lions’ complaint it.
“”I am in no doubt whatever that it was deliberate foul play, a double spearing. It was a cheap shot which has put me out of the tour,” he said.
“But the truth is it could have been an awful lot worse because they could have quite easily broken my neck. I was turned upside down, in the air and speared into the ground.”
Sky News reported that the dislocation was so severe it took 30 mins to put his shoulder back in. Ouch.
In other news I bought an elephant today.
