RuggaMatrix International 031 – Cool Bananas

Has the Lions series had its day? Well the RuggaMatrix team says no and today we speak to a key player from the 2001 series in Australia.

1999 RWC Final try scorer and leading forward for the Wallabies in that 2001 series, Owen Finegan, joins the panel from Canberra for a direct comparison between the two tours.

Of course game two of the 2009 series gets a thorough going over with the number one issue being eye gouging.

Ewen McKenzie updates us on the drama surrounding Mathieu Bastareaud. Les Kiss, a former Springbok assistant coach, looks closely at the Lions Test and the off-field drama that followed.

Our special in-depth analysis this week is POSSESSION.

Does more possession always mean a victory? What happens when you run out of ideas? Is it better sometimes to NOT have the ball? We’ll answer those questions and a lot more in Episode 031 – Cool Bananas.
