Any one from tonights game could pull on a jersey for the force against the other super 15 teams ... Good to see them holding the ball and minimal kicking but when they did 80% was good attacking rugby SNK did some good kick offs and the boys got the ball back at the kick offs


    The B&IL need to be watched for forward passes and I dont think stubbs deserved the yellow as it was the first warning to the force were as the B&IL were doing it at the other end and only gave the penalty away...
    Mate, which game did you watch, you are clutching at straws, 17-69 is a drubbing! Snk is a joke. The Force have done some damage to the Lions tours! What it did expose was which players at not up to Super rugby level! However, there is a bigger picture in rugby than the fortunes of the Force, very sad!

    Related, but off topic:

    I met some friends at the Irish Club pre-match. They had only two bar staff on for the ground floor bar. The place was heaving with blue- or red-topped folk. The bloke serving the eastern bar was a fkn joke - had a whole 4 metres of bar to serve and didn't move from the 1m near the till. The blokes I was with very nearly died of thirst waiting for this dick to shift to the other end of the bar.

    Sorry Irish Club, you have been sent to the boycott list. Epic fail on a day that you've known for months would be busy.

    Just looking at the replay, Healy is very lucky the AR walked in front of the camera at the time he was taking a munch on Sheehans arm.

    Ah, I heard the 'bite' comments but didn't know which side was meant to be doing the chewing...

    Biting, injury mars Lions win over Force
    Justin Chadwick, AAP
    Updated June 5, 2013, 8:48 pm


    AAP © The British and Irish Lions recorded a predictable 69-17 thumping of the Western Force in Perth.
    Irish prop Cian Healy was involved in an alleged biting controversy as the British and Irish Lions recorded a predictable 69-17 thumping of the Western Force in Perth on Wednesday night.

    Healy was in the headlines for all the wrong reasons in the 17th minute when Force scrumhalf Brett Sheehan claimed he was bitten on the arm by the 112kg prop.

    Replays proved inconclusive, but Healy is sure to face further scrutiny over the incident.

    "I don't know if it was an accident or on purpose, so we'll move on," Sheehan said.

    Healy also has plenty to sweat about on the injury front after badly rolling his ankle in the 35th minute.

    The 25-year-old was clearly distressed after his left ankle got caught under the body of Force flanker Angus Cottrell.

    Healy's ankle twisted awkwardly in the incident, and he lay on the ground for more than five minutes while he received treatment before being stretchered off.

    With the first Test against the Wallabies just 16 days away, Healy has little time to recover and push his case for selection.

    The Lions suffered another injury scare late in the match when flanker Tom Croft was knocked out after a sickening head clash with Force No.8 Richard Brown.

    Croft, who broke his neck last year, was able to walk off the field.

    How many poeple has Brown knocked out this year? MMM in the first game I recall.

    Biting allegation and ankle injury to Cian Healy mar Lions' huge win against Western Force
    IAIN PAYTEN THE DAILY TELEGRAPH JUNE 05, 2013 10:00PM

    Western Force star Brett Sheehan has been asked to make an official statement, given the potential damage of a public allegation of biting. Source: Getty Images
    FORCE halfback Brett Sheehan was asked to provide an official statement after alleging mid-game he was bitten by a British and Irish Lions player last night.

    Sheehan reacted strongly after grappling in a tackle involving Lions prop Cian Healy, and complained to referee Glenn Jackson he'd been bitten on the arm.

    Jackson paused the game while TMO Glenn Newman reviewed replays but the footage was inconclusive.

    Sheehan said during a halftime interview: "I don't know if it was an accident or on purpose", but post-match the Force were keen to let the matter rest; particularly after Healy suffered a probable tour-ending ankle injury.

    "It was left on the field, it was dealt with by the referee at the time and I think that's it. We don't need to talk any more about that," Force coach Michael Foley said.

    But ARU-appointed citing commissioner Freek Burger did want Sheehan to talk more about it, and called the feisty halfback to WA Rugby offices after the match to make an official statement, given the potential damage of a public allegation of biting.

    Lions coach Warren Gatland said he was in the dark on the matter.

    "I know as much as you know about it," Gatland said post-match.

    "The citing guy has had a look at it and he can't see anything."

    Any potential sanction for Healy would likely be moot, in any case, after the Irish loosened suffered a nasty ankle injury in the first half.

    Healy was stretchered from the field in obvious pain and taken to hospital, and though X-rays cleared him of a break, Gatland said ligament damage was the probable diagnosis.

    "It's not broken but they think its ligament damage. We will have to wait 24-48 hours and see after that," Gatland said.

    Anything less than a minor sprain would likely see Healy leave the tour.

    Will Tom croft be cited and have to face the irb for a dangerous tackle with no attempt to use arms/hands. That head clash could have been so much worse what was he thinking. It definitely was not safe.

    He picked the wrong technique and person to do it against Richard "the mountain goat" Brown.

    According to Rod "Dickhead" Kafer in commentary he wouldn't have put it past Sheehan to have put his arm in the mouth of Healy "because that the sort of bloke he is". He also said that he wouldn't have been surprised if ED Stubbs gave away the penalty that lead to his sin binning on purpose as the Lions were about to score. Even Phil Kearns said Really and end up in the sin bin? Kafers reply was Sometimes it comes off. The man is an idiot!

    If Sheeno had put his arm in Healy's mouth it would have been leading with the fist "because that's the sort of bloke he is" He's never going to be such a puss as to milk a biting penalty, he'd just sort it out with angry sort man tactics (strike first, strike hard, rinse, repeat)

    are you surprised he would think this? he is the Brumbies biggest fan - a team that has made a season of giving away penalties on their own tryline rather than conceding 5 points.

    Got that right!
