Lions will have the scent of blood in their nostrils [Jun. 29th, 2009|02:23 pm]

So the Lions have gone into the bush for a couple of days to lick their wounds.
 
We have to hope all those cuts have healed and the flow of blood from Saturday's brutal Pretoria Test has been stemmed. Otherwise, they might be confronted with the unedifying sight of lions chasing Lions with the smell of blood in their nostrils.
 
At Loftus last weekend, it was Springboks who had the taste for blood. Lions doctor James Robson, normally a master of diplomacy, said revealingly "It certainly was a fairly brutal game. As the casualty list goes, it is not something I am happy with."
 
Not surprising, either. Welsh props Gethin Jenkins and Adam Jones are out of the tour, Brian O'Driscoll who suffered concussion is also likely to be sidelined for this Saturday's 3rd Test in Johannesburg, Irish wing Tommy Bowe damaged an elbow and Welsh centre Jamie Roberts, a wrist.
 
The Lions are due to arrive back in Johannesburg late Monday evening, ready for another training session on Tuesday. But what state will they be in to confront the world champions for a third time in successive weeks? Pretty poor, is the answer.
 
These Lions were hardly flushed with an abundance of world class talent even when they left London. Right now, in their greatly weakened state, they are down to the bare bones and will find it massively difficult to raise themselves for Saturday's final Test, especially with the series already lost.
 
As 1993 Lions assistant coach Dick Best, who was in Pretoria on Saturday, said "The final Test is always tough. You are thinking of home, the players have been training and playing for 10 months at least. They desperately need a break, a decent rest. They're doing last minute shopping and thinking of anything but another Test match. It'll be very hard for them in Johannesburg."
