Most of the bleating about cards comes from folk who do not understand the laws and guidance.  It was a very difficult game to referee, there are process in place to look at stuff, they followed the process properly to arrive at the right decisions.

The whineing and whinging about the ref on here is frankly pathetic

That's just simply incorrect.

This series to me is reminding me of those couple of Ireland NZ games. Teams not used to be being beaten just turning up the physicality and doing so illegally.

I was thinking the exact same. Very like the NZ Ireland game in Dublin after NZ lost in Chicago. NZ really should have had a few red that day. It was a disgrace Sam Cane in particular didnt get a red.

Why is it hilarious?.
Itoje has had two very good 1st 40 mins in both tests but also had a poor 2nd 40. Mostert getting more match fit has arguably had the better of him. Beard has had a very good tour, arguably better than Itoje coming up to the tests, he has more presence in the key area where we have been poor i.e. the breakdown, he will add weight to the pack and he's a proven partner to AWJ having won 2 grand slams alongside him.
Is that funny?

It's a predictable opinion, Itoje has overall been the Lions best but you're advocating dropping him as it is in line with your pre test opinions. Yes it is funny. After he played well in the first test your absence from the board was telling, you then didn't return until you felt able to criticise certain players after the second test. A rugby fan? Do me a favour.
