I know you've got to build a lead but will we really learn anything by kicking for goal?

Fantastic from Faletau! Not just the tackle but holding him up

Pass should have come earlier

Great work by Faletau.

Laidlaw's box kicking has been fantastic we're just not doing anything with it!

AWJ and Henderson are not working defensively. Sexton looks blank in attack and should be replaced by Farrall at 1/2 time.

The lions being out played by the NZPB's here and now they score...

We're very much 2nd best with the aerial battle which is a worry given NZ are the best in the world at it!

Nice mini break by Hogg but a poor pass to Watson then messing up on halfway.

We need to calm down across the park!

Cool heads required which is why I feel Farrall should come on in the second half. Sexton still looks to be carrying a niggle.

Seems very little on field leadership, only Faletau looks to be in control.

Lions centers are very robotic and uninspiring, Laidlow just keeps kicking the ball away, Hogg as always good with ball in hand but everything else bang average, Sexton playing himself out of a test start, Henderson is missing tackles and restarts.

All in all, pretty uninspiring so far. Crying or Very sad

You reckon? Teo has taken the ball with pace a couple of times carrying hard with good distribution when needed.

Sinckler, Watson, Teo and Faletau have all started well but it is only 30 minutes in. Henderson and AWJ quickly playing themselves out of contention, falling off tackles all over the place.

Teo has been poor. As has Joseph, we need some inspiration in the center, not this turgid stuff.

I'd actually forgotten how good Faletau is, he'd been so poor the past year but looks back to his best now.

Faletau has been superb, country mile the best player on the field. Cemented as test starting 8.

We are playing headless rugby not heads up rugby. Trying to force it.
Warbs on the line running into his own man. Losing the ball in contact just now.

Te'o is the Lions second best player so far and is making yards every time.

extremely poor first half from the lions, with hogg, sexton and warburton being the worst for me. warbs coming off a injury so maybe give him a slight pass

only positives so far would be teo, and toby looking sharp

compelling and rich

Nobody is nailing a spot after this performance so far. Te'o and Moriarty have looked handy, Hogg looks nervous.

I'm amazed the ref hasn't gone to the tmo once given how many times we got over the line.

yeah would add moriarty as a positive. only two forwards who have impressed is him and toby. warbs been non existent, two second rows been poor and front row havent got much going against a small pack

Farrall surely has to come on for Sexton now. Been poor from Sexton who I feel must be carrying a niggle.

AWJ and Henderson have been very poor defensively, especially Henderson and Warburton has just not got into the game.

On the positives, Watson has looked a big threat in attack, Te'o has made ground everytime he has touched the ball and Faletau has been superb.

Composure needed in the second half.

Sinckler has been good in the loose but do agree that the scrum has been as dominant as it should be.

Poor half!

I'm not watching... I did warn folk about NZ refs last season though.

Is it this bad? Hopefully we come to life in this half.
