'Lions strong at breakdown and gain line against Barbarians'

Weekend one of the Lions tour and it was definitely one for the Lions over the Wallabies as we move rapidly into Australia and towards the Test series.

Stuart, should the Lions have had a penalty try when the ball was knocked from Owen Farrells hands in the act of scoring a try. The player who dislodged the ball was the tackler, who was still in contact and had not released and got to his feet. So penalty try and bin? Without the foul play there was no doubt that a try would have been scored.

Stuart, quick question about your new hair guru, Adam Jones. No doubt about it, a quality scrummager. I do feel your praise during the BaBa's game was a little overstated. By any chance, did you watch the Glasgow v Ospreys game at the end of the season? Adam Jones got a decent seeing over by Ryan Grant, who was bizarrely overlooked for the Lions. I can only imagine Warren Gatland did not see the game. Must be the unluckiest player not to be on the plane. Anyway, my question is what hairstyle did Adam suggest you get?

Stuart Mike Philips has started 5 of Wales´ last six games against Australia. They lost all of them and he failed to score in any match. Given the Aussies have a history of nulifying his running game, is he the right man to start at 9 for the tests?

Hi Stuart, what are your thoughts on extending the premiership to 14 teams and having two teams relegated and promoted? Similar to the system in France. Ruaidhri
