Round 5: Lions v Rebels - Sun12:05am @Emirates Park

Another penalty, nice Lions break and the half back cynically threw it into the returning player. I think they would've been better off keeping attacking.

Another penalty for not being onside, another yellow card warning.

This will be a 14 - 1 penalty count now.

Another advantage, pretty certain this ref is only reffing one team now around the ruck and offside line.

Rebels need to be careful, this is reminiscent of another Lions v Australian team from a few years back.

33 - 19 54 gone.

Cooper had a brain explosion there, needed to simply dive on a ball instead of letting it run dead could have gifted the Lions a try. edit: it did, 33 - 26 now 56 gone. Lions throwing the ball around now and finding space everywhere.

That forward pass call on Genia to Naisarani was a shocker, looked half a metre back. Rebels were hot on attack 22m out too.

Didnt go to bed.

Rebels clocked off at half time. Frankly, deserve to lose for their blatantly cynical fouling. Should have had 3 yellows at least.

Lions in again off a turnover (with the defender not rolling away, no clear release and questionably supporting his body weight, but anyway)...Lions playing with a mass of confidence now and throwing the ball around everywhere.

Rebels have gone into their shell and are playing really conservatively. Rebels look to need a miracle from here.

Phill Kearns will sleep well tonight knowing he’s no longer the biggest cheer leading/biased commentator in rugby

Hmmm, this ref is definitely reffing one side.

Lions had one player in a ruck, Rebels counter ruck threw and the tackled player through the ball 10m away from the ruck area after presenting.

17-1.

No rugby game has ever had a similar disparity. Not even ones involving the Irish.

Amusingly you could hear the ref yell hands off blue at the ruck where he was on his feet and had full rights to the ball.

Fuck its so hard to tell if the ref is bias or the Rebels are just the worst disciplined team ever.

Lions already had penalty advantage for Korobeite being offside............

The Rebels are lucky not to have a player or two in the bin.

The Rebels discpline has been woeful, but you need to ask if you believe that the Lions have given away just 1 penalty all game.

Cottrell just sin binned when the replay from the back showed he went through the middle of the maul. Pretty sure you had an argument with some other Rebels around the side, but definitely Cottrell looked fine.
