Lawes eager to impress in second Test audition


"Two weeks ago we cheated in the scrums, last week it was blocking, now we're saying this".

"It's really disappointing to hear it, because what he's implying is that we're going out there to intentionally injure somebody and that's not the case".

"We've never been like that and as a New Zealander I would expect him to know the New Zealand psyche".

"Sometimes, in the moment, people may get their entry wrong and maybe stick out an arm and hit someone high, but it's not intentional".

"Wasn't it a great Test ... both sets of players earned the respect of each other in a physical contest".

This is not the first time Gatland has complained about New Zealand's tactics. "The fans who watched it loved it, so it's really, really disappointing to hear him say take away not only the gloss of the test match but from his own team's performance as well". Hansen said. He felt it was just another example of Gatland grumbling for no good reason. I'm not saying it was for the entire 80 minutes, there were times when we were excellent, times when the defence was good and times when we carried well. He starts at full-back tomorrow, while Jonathan Joseph, who has not played as much rugby as he would have liked, starts at centre.

Garcia does at least give Thompson some credit for owning up. "We have been saying the same thing for the past six years". They reveal questionable conduct on the part of Australian football officials and their hired consultants.

Boss acknowledged that Gatland's first job was to protect his players and suggested that the Lions coach may have been trying to alert the referees to the tackling on Murray in the hopes of wringing more penalties out of the officials in the second test. "There's a guy who's watching for foul play all the time".

"I thought they were reasonably unabrasive at the breakdown - they allowed us to get the ball we needed by not putting numbers in, because they wanted to have line speed", Hansen told reporters on Sunday.

"We'll probably get some clarity from the referee later in the week because it's a little bit tough for Conor".

"I guess he might be a bit desperate or something, but I'm not sure". "After he's kicked he's been pushed a few times and pushed to the ground". It's just making sure he's protected and not harassed after he's box kicked.

"It's a concern that they are actually not trying to charge the kick down, because they are nowhere near it".

He suggested the All Blacks had deliberately attempted to injure Lions scrumhalf Conor Murray when they targeted his legs when trying to charge down kicks.

Look, this is nothing inconsistent with what we've said since day one. Acosta noted his annoyance in a tweet before the presser began.

That said, Gatland said they also need to find the right balance in retaining players eager to restore wounded pride.

"This Hurricanes team means a heck of a lot to me, as a young fella growing up, wanting to play for them is huge". That happened and we ended up on the wrong side of the scoreboard.

However, his athletic and combative partnership with compatriot Maro Itoje against the Blues had been one of the highlights of the early tour, and the pair looked to be in contention for the Test locking roles.

"It's predictable comments from Gatland, isn't it?"

"It's mind games yet again by the man Warren Gatland", said Ferris.

We've only won the first Test and there's still two to come, ' Crockett said.

The 21-year-old from Bangkok did not play in Arkansas and worked on her game during the break. She's going with a "whatever works" mentality since putting has been her achilles heel.

He believes his players will be feeling disappointed in themselves, and need to physically rise to the challenge in training this week ahead of the second Test.
