Maori need to chance their arm a bit more if they don't want to be sitting behind the posts all day.

For the sake of next week let's hope the Lions can put a try or two together, or they'll be run over.

No or little attempt to tackle, looks like he was trying to dislodge the ball.

Yellow card, a bit weak but there you go, a bit of bad luck with that one.

The All Blacks (lite) just can't help themselves can they? They just have to get a cheap shot in. Lucky to get away with the yellow.

Seriously? Think it was well refereed and the YC was fair. Very little attempt to tackle, more attempt to dislodge the ball. 1/2p was going down in the tackle but it was a clear hit to the head so YC.

I'm absolutely shocked that the New Zealand fans think there was nothing in the cheap shoulder to the face.

Rubbish, the guy fell into it as much as the shoulder came in. Yellow was correct, and unlucky for both players.

Penalty try is about the only way we look like scoring one!

We should win this, but it is pretty insipid stuff

We'll sort of, the one you get when you don't get one. Maori have gone to pieces.

Now that the game is running away from them I would expect them to resort to more cheap shots and cynical penalties.

Davies having a fine game, Lions a very good second half (so far).

Maoris have been rather awful IMO. Shows the importance of time together to gel as a team.

Yep, they've gone to the pack. I'd be a bit concerned about net week though. This side has been together a few days.

If the Lions get too far ahead there will be even more 'no arms' tackles go in.

Itoje capping off a fine performance with a try. Think the Lions pack has had a good balance to it today, the hooker-lock combination working well at the line-out. Starting front five?

I think that he is so consistently good that people forget just how high those standards are. After returning from injury he has shown just what Wales have been missing. There are no weaknesses in his game.

Now they've got a real try. Well done. Lions have grabbed full control of this match. It ain't pretty, but it's effective.

MABs have been very very disappointing it has to be said. TKB will get a rocket up his ar5e for giving away stupid penalties and then also getting sent off. Silly boy. Lions have been solid.

He really is a quality player and I honestly feel he would have pushed Vunipola to the starting 8 jumper.
