    What's with the rumour Kyle has hurt his shoulder and could be out for 12 weeks and has been holding off the op? Or is this someone with the wrong facts?

    WA TODAY has that he has an injury but that he should be right to go this weekend so who knows.

    I'm not a big fan of The Roar

    But

    The British rugby media has taken aim at Force coach Michael Foley, when the Australian Rugby Union should be the target.

    Foley, faced with two games in four days, named a team of no-names for the clash with the Lions tonight in Perth, but will select a far stronger lineup for the Waratahs game in Perth on Sunday.

    “Insulting,” cried the British media.

    That’s total bollocks.

    Now for the facts.

    Why did the ARU agree to the pointless Lions-Barbarian opening fixture of the tour in sweltering Hong Kong last Saturday?

    The Force had a Super Rugby bye that day, so the tour could, and should, have kicked off on Australian soil in the west. Not with some social game in Asia.

    and don't forget these bits:

    "But no-one can blame Foley for taking his stance. He’s done some tremendous work with the Force this season, a far cry from the shambles of last season coaching the Waratahs, losing the final eight games.

    Foley has carved a niche for himself in the west, and good luck to him."

    Nice to have some support.

    Good points BnB. I can understand the thinking of those posters who have been knocking the selections for tonite. But I agree with the way the coaches - AND apparently the players - have gone. I despise the Tahs and would rather beat them. The team can then aim at consigning the Rabble to the wooden spoon in the last home fixture.

    Some have said that nobody will remember Sundays result but we'll be remembered by history if we get reamed tonight. BUT can anyone here remember which prvinces played the 2001 Lions or what the scores were? (Without checking Wiki or somesuch). Lions Tours are all about the Test Matches, in my eyes anyway. Maybe the players think the same about the Caps?

    I also remember the game at the WACA

    Add 12 to the NSW score and 28 to the Lions and your close. But no cigar.

    I'm talking players on the field not the score

    Lions won the game

    Off the top of my head, I can only remember Australia A beating the Lions in Gosford and WA conceding 116 points.

    I didn't look (I have since, I thought NSW went close as well and how wrong I was)

    Lot of spite in that one - set the scene perfectly for Justin Harrison's heroics in the third test...

    I remember the Brumbies result in particular because those two little shits Austin Healey and Matt Dawson managed to win the game in stoppage time. I think the whole neighbourhood heard me swearing at the top of my lungs when they did that.
