Can the Wallabies beat the Lions in 2013?

With the British and Irish Lions visiting Australia in 2013, what do you think the Wallabies’ chances are of coming away with a win (or four)?

Having watched the last Lions tour to Australia and our recent tour to Europe I am wondering if we will even win a game.

The team seems to be so all over the place and unpredictable that combinations seem hard to come by.

And because of that, victories might be even harder to come by.

My gut feeling is that we have a less than 25 percent chance of winning the series but have a 50 percent chance of taking a game off them, most probably in Brisbane.

England, Wales and Ireland offer some real quality players and Scotland has some youngsters who could be flyers in the team depending on how they go in the coming Six Nations tournament.

The key to this for us Roarers is to watch the Northern Hemisphere games to try to guess who will step up and cement their place in the Lions side.

It would be great if we could get this on free-to-air, however I think we will end up watching it on Foxtel with the rest of the rugby fans.

It doesn’t get bigger than this in world rugby. A Rugby World Cup is against known opposition but the Lions are a different beast to just England or Wales.


They will come at us totally focused on playing the game to the maximum intensity and I am wondering if our Wallabies are up to this level.

What do you think? What chance to we have of pulling a game or two away from the Lions?
