O’Driscoll dropped for Lions’ series decider!

3 Jul

Following last week’s single point defeat in Melbourne, Lions’ Coach Warren Gatland has dropped rugby legend Brian O’Driscoll for the decider in Sydney on Saturday. The Lions’ played almost all of last week’s game on the back foot rarely crossing the gain-line and the Aussies deserved their success. I fully agree with the following quote from BBC rugby correspondent Ian Robertson, “You just wonder if they got a lucky bag and picked some names out. The Lions won the first Test and made eight changes to their squad. The Wallabies won the second and probably won’t make any changes. The Lions lose by one point and there are six changes in the team and three guys on the bench who were nowhere near the team for the second Test. I was convinced Brian O’Driscoll should have been named as captain. It’s catastrophic leaving him out. He’s still one of the top centres in world rugby. He’s a fantastic guy and has been on four tours and knows it all inside out. It’s a massive mistake.”
