    BOD to captain if Warburton Is out.

    Badly need Corbiseiro and Roberts fit.

    Murray needs to start with Sexton.

        If Warburton isn't fit BOD will be captain (that's got to be the safest bet ever) and personally I'd go with SOB if he can do his limpet impression from the other summer against NZ. Shame but Tipuric seems to have fallen at the wayside and I'd ask (again) what else has happened there cos last couple of games he's totally lacked the spark - maybe he knew he had no hope of making the tests no matter.

        They need to do something with the midfield - I'd even say consider this as the match to play North there. It's **** or get off the pot time and the current midfield isn't doing anything special.

          They could do with a 9 who gives good quick ball for a start....

                  Forgot about Cole....

                  Won't start ahead of Lydiate/Warburton if both fit so would have him on bench.

                    Down to hunger now, who wants it more. If he hadn't cracked the arm I'd have said advantage Paulie. He's hewn from these situations.

                    Really hope there's some moves being stored up and equally hope we see a deeper squad to select from, not shallower.

                    There is decidedly little between these two sides.

                        Murray to start.

                        Novenas to be said for Corbisiero (a better scrum in the first quarter today and the series would be in the bag).

                        Davies/Bod isn't working. Not a hint of a midfield break in two tests. BOD to twelve, Tuilagi to 13 if Roberts isn't fit.

                        Zebo ahead of Bowe.

                          Has to be some drastic surgery for this game. The Lions' only attacking tactics were kicking the ball in the air or knocking it on in Australian territory.

                          Bowe and North will probably stay because they're not responsible for the rubbish inside them. Two successive games BOD and Davies have looked mis-matched and innocuous in attack. Roberts and Tuilagi will at least get the side over the gain-line and beat defenders.

                          The back-row did well defensively but were anonymous in attack. If Warburton is gone, then I'd want to bring in O'Brien to make the yards in tight. If Gatland goes with Tipuric, then Faletau should come in. Tipuric might bring some sorely-needed creativity to the centres.

                          The line-out was poor. The front five aren't used for much in Gatland's system other than trucking up slow ball and clearing rucks, and they weren't effective in either facet. Youngs was on the back-foot a lot and he's not a back-foot scrum half. There don't look to be many options within the squad who can change things significantly there. Think Gatland might just hope for a better performance next week.

                            Zebo's big boot could have helped today.

                              SOB was the best carrier today when he came on. The attack is bloody crying out for him... With the grace of God Roberts will be back. Murray might have a start and Pikey on bench at least. Best should be on the bench if youngs injuy rules him out! Midfield our biggest problem. Any change at loosehead is needed!
