Rob, your last par says it all. But the Lions last night were the "dirt-trackers", the Test side will be a vastly different proposition, and they won't be tactically out-witted as they proved against the Reds and Waratahs who had them under the pump, but the Lions still won.
Morning Nick, good points you've made, but I keep saying it, so much revolves around who Robbie Deans picks at 10. Is he having second thoughts? He hasn't been nearly so vocal about James O'Connor since Kurtley Beale was a late addition to the squad.
And so will the vast majority of the Wallaby squad be glad the first Test is finally here mania, they haven't had a game of any description for three long weeks. That will be a telling factor.
