good night for
He scored a try and he played excellently ... not for the first time on this tour. If he isn't in the Test 23, it will be a travesty. Has been outstanding and deserves to be on the bench at the very least on Saturday.
Four days ago he was enjoying a well-earned family holiday. Today he's Lions player number 806. It's an astonishing story and one he will surely dine out on for some time to come.
The Glasgow prop was probably unlucky to have been left out of the original squad, but, on the evidence of yesterday's scrums, the chances of him forcing his way towards Test involvement seem slim. Like a few others, he may have played his last game on tour.
His series is over and he's no longer 'Australia's most wanted man.' However, he has a new court date in August on an assault charge. Strange days indeed!
