  • @KILLER SHARK (Comment 84) : yeah I agree. That Lions pack putting in a massive well synced shove as the ball went in. CJ was scrumming like a demon. As for Franco, he may as well have been calling our lineouts.

  • @robdylan (Comment 86) : Watched the parts of the re run of the game again. And yeah definitely looked like CJ was scrumming in and up. When CJ came off there was an immediate shift in in scrum power and the Lions were clearly wheeling the scrum around. This tactic,however, did not go unnoticed by Jafta the whole game.

    The Sharks got pinged early for doing this when we were going backwards but we promptly stopped trying to get away with it. Some serious credit needs to go to Keegan on how he got the ball from our backpedaling scrum and still somehow managed to get forward momentum.

    I bet the Aussies are wishing they had someone like him today!! 😈

  • @gregkaos (Comment 87) : Now that to me is what sets a great eighth man apart from the typical eighth man.

    Very few eighth-men are able to get the ball out without knocking it on, let alone gain forward momentum from a back peddling scrum.

    An eighth man like that is able to single-handedly neutralise the opposition scrum.
