Well, it happened, the Lions got totally crushed by the All Blacks of New Zealand.
Scotland on Sunday had it right :
As he put it :
The All Blacks ran rings around the Lions and the result in Christchurch wasn’t even close.
There were so many flaws in the Lions’ team, but the buck stops with Clive Woodward, some of his team selections and the way he made them.
What happened here is nowhere near the level of fiasco that Formula 1 just faced last weekend at Indianapolis, but it damages the sport of Rugby, and the fine institution that is the Lions touring team, founded as it is on co-operation between four proud Rugby nations….. this time it was ludicrously biased, not just to English players, but to older players past their sell by date, picked by the coach based on “experience, not form”.
Well, the Emperor truly has no clothes….
