Brumbies exploits the ugly defense of the Lions – Citizen


Last week, sharks cheated, and Lions started their Super Rugby Down Under tour on a loss that fell to 31-20 in Brumbies in Canberra on Saturday.

With five attempts, Brumbiesi beat the Lions with three, and while the Lions were much better, they still missed too much trouble.

In the first half, Brumbies, who ran 19-8 on the ladder, used 15 Lions, who in the first half lowered and 36 in order to prove the coherence of both sides.

Who was the star in this game?

After the cough of the yellow card in the fifth minute for the tip of the Lions whore Malcolm Marx, the center of Brumbies Tom Wright was a tower power and caused Lions numerous problems to defend. The way he played with Lions reached the fifth attempt of his team in the 57th yearth He wrote the class every minute.

Key moments and topics

  • Lions came first in the 7th minute through the initial test with the wing Aphiwe Dyantyi, after Elton Jantjies recognized the space. Dyantyi still did a bit of work and he worked fine on his left leg to catch the hosts on the wrong foot. But that turned out to be the wrong dawn.
  • In the rest of the first half, Brumbiesi, who made three attempts to move to halftime with a lead of 19-8, were presumed to be.
  • At least two of Brumbies' attempts in the first half of the year came from the Lions faults. First, the wing of Ruan Combrinck tried to intercept, so left-wing Tony Pulu was the place to exploit one man less in the defensive line. Later, Lion's poor conscience at the foot of the cracks enabled Broumbies to hit the ball and put Lions Spare Center Gianni Lombard under all sorts of pressure. Then they quickly returned to the center of Tevit Kuridrani to capture all of Elton Jantjies and recorded a key test in the first half.
  • Nonsense, the scrubs were also very unmanaged for the Lions, as both the initial props Nathan McBeth and Johannes Jonker broke up in the initial half for early pushing. They also ended up with a low late in-game game when a late bonus point saw that the Brumbies package destroyed its colleagues on the last set.
