According to the Daily Fail one of the lessons learned from the Lions’ defeat to the Brumbies is that Christian Wade was out of his depth.
That’s right, the same Christian Wade who has been lighting
up rugby pitches all season from High Wycombe to Buenos Aries and who was
thrust into a team featuring a three-quarter line who met for the first time 2
days before the match, with a fullback starting his first game of the tour, a
fly-half playing his 2nd ever senior game in that position and
behind a lethargic, malfunctioning pack.
And yet the Lions still only lost by 2 points to a team (albeit
one missing its Wallabies) that tops the Super 15.
Nothing like a bit of perspective…
