Ding, Ding, Seconds Out, Round Three

The 'edginess' of last weekend both added to and finally despoiled the game. Lets not remove that aspect of the game but ensure it is properly channeled. The problem is that the best referees currently are British and South African, hence ruled out of consideration at the Lions' request. Dickinson is as experienced a referee as ANZ can provide and should handle the tension better than Bryce and Berdos.

I will be highly surprised if there isn't a punch up in the first 20, and for this reason Irish and Welsh players can be expected to get the hat-tip ahead of the English in challenged positions. I certainly don't expect the Lions to finish second best in this aspect of the game on Saturday
