Strange seeing the Lions as faves for this series, being that it looks like the test team likely be a Welsh majority, and Wales's record against Aus is horrible. That said, with Sexton/Heaslip/O Brian/O'Connell/ and possibly BOD as well (I'd like to see him paired with Roberts to see how they'll do, with Davies on the bench) it's like Wales with a twist.
Hogg is amazing but I don't see him getting the 15 place over Halfpenny right now. Halfpenny is too good right now, and his kicking game is just insane.
Murray played excellently against the Baabaas but Phillips is just on fire right now, but having another great scrum half to come on is amazing. Murray is playing exactly like Phillips right now.
Huge depth to the squad and another few games to see how well people are working together etc before the big tests.
Reds on Saturday will be tough, they've put out an extremely strong side.
I'm going to try to watch the Reds match but on delay because I have to go out of town to Texas tomorrow. Glad to see that they are putting more effort into their squad than the Force did. I bet the Brumbies can do it. It's a bummer the Lions best loosehead had to leave though.

Scraped a 1-0 lead. Nice seeing Beale miss that kick at the end purely from a Welsh stand point Though Aus would have easily won had their kicking game been up to par. Need more from the Lions next week.
I hope we get white washed even though I have already said this, that dumb **** kiwi robbie deans has never known what to do in his 5 years here and I want him sacked. And even with all these injuries he refuses to pick cooper and as per usual the nsw players and melbourne players lose the game for us. When we get ewen as coach and he picks only brumbies and reds players we will be a real challenge to beat.
