Good show to the boys by stuffing the Sarfers in the last test, but I think this is going to be a case of a series we should have won. What amazes me is the injury list. For example Wales provided, in total, ten of the test side over three tests. Five are now seriously injured, with four of the five probably not fit to play again this year.
Some misinformed people have said we stuffed the Sarfer 2nd team in the final test, but they miss the point; DeVilliers (he is barking by the way) had to rest players as they were as messed up as the Lions team, and he now has to play in the Tri-Nations (speaking of which the Kanga-shagga's should really have beaten the sheep molesters Saturday) so needed to blood his squad / rest key players. There were also many in Sarfa land who actually thought (until they had been stuffed by an injury hit Lions team) that the side in the 3rd test was actually the best Sarfer team!
My own pathetic career was finished by broken ribs that are still not right three years after the breakage (I was 41 at the time!), but it makes me think this game is getting harder and harder. After my cartliage operation in 1987, and the odd dislocated shoulder, I was more or less able to play pretty good level for 20 odd years. But now my body is in such series downward spiral that makes me think I am friggin glad I am not 21 now!
No politics as I am getting pretty p*ssed off with all of them to be honest. I keep on having Doulgas Adam's type thoughts about how not only coming down from the trees was a bad idea, but actually we should have stayed in the water..................see what depression the lions losing a test series causes?
At Partizan with Soggy Bottom! - I had a fantastic weekend at Partizan in Newark with chums Andrew Brentnall, Tim Thompson and Ian Notter! Here are some photos of the game that Ian took...
