Thats it, glad I cant watch. TBH, the format seriously penalizes the team that has to travel for a final. Not an excuse, Crusaders are just too good.

To be fair, the format actually aided the Lions in reaching the final. Statistically they were not the 2nd best team in the competition and under the old system they'd have had to have played the Hurricanes in NZ. They're just not good enough to beat the 'Saders.

Lineout drive is not working. Our inability to adjust to that is shocking. No plan B it seems. We just keep trying plan A.

Boys are playing with some real fire now. I don't mind if they lose, as long as they keep this up.

Why go for the kick? Why?

Commentators just summed it up. You don't go for a kick when you've got the Crusaders under some pressure.
