Our resident Rugby Guru is still having connectivity problems, so again I'll fill in the gaps. Later on today the British & Irish Lions take on South Africa in the 2nd test. Having lost narrowly last weekend, this game is the last chance the lions have to salvage a first tour victory since 1997.
But in a bizarre development, scrum-half Mike Phillips has revealed that Springboks lock Bakkies Botha went on about his 'sexy blue eyes' in an attempt to put the Welshman off his game. Botha is revered in South Africa as the Springboks' 'enforcer', a salt of the earth country man who is hard to the core. But Phillips' revelation proves that Botha may be more in touch with his feminine side than was previously thought.
To be fair Mike Phillips does have dreamy eyes, but i was always a man fan of the green wonders of Joost Van Der Westhuizen.
Anyway... Phillips & Botha both start tomorrow, so lets see what happens when their eyes meet again. Will Sparks fly? I hope so.
