    Jonathan Davies should go for sure

    His power will be needed.

    The 37 should be the biggest toughest bastards or each of the 4 nations. 30 man Royal Rumble for each position, winner goes on the Tour

    That's a cracking idea would see some pretty boys like Biggar and Farrell refusing to do it though.

    Number 10
    ==========
    for me is tough - Sexton has the spot but think he's out for another 6 weeks weeks and thats a lot of time without games

    Farrell has been amazing but got shown up yesterday

    Bigger is solid and improving

    No idea about Scottish out-half!


    Full Back
    ========
    Halfpenny 100%.

    Kearney is amazing under high ball but has done very little else in past couple of years.

    Goode - average for England - he should be dropped for Brown

    Hogg - not seen much of him but maybe 3rd choice


    Captain
    ========
    Very difficult - Warburton basically said he doesn't want captaincy any more and plays better without it. Ryan Jones is a great captain but injured for 6-8 weeks

    Robshaw - doesn't make great decisions for me and no way he should get open side berth

    If O'Driscoll goes and is 1st choice centre he should be Captain IMO



    Hooker
    =======
    Rory Best is a shoe-in for me - Hibbard has been playing very well and good back up


    Wingers
    ========
    2 Welsh boys will take some moving

    What's wrong with Bowe? Injured?

    England wingers done nothing

    Visser eligible?! He's good!

    Zebo worth a shot as well




    Tipuric is a superb player as well and should be getting more starts for Wales

    Tipuric was superb in the 6 nations, Along with Biggar and Warburton (in patches) oh and George North is deffo going, How can you not pick him!

    Warburton may say he dont want the captaincy but I remember the world cup where he shined as captain, The lad can definitely do it!

    Could be interesting to see a BOD/Roberts partnership in full flow but part of me expects Gatland not to take BOD.

    BREAKING NEWS: South Wales Police have asked for witness’s to come forward regarding a brutal crime against 15 English men on a recent visit to Cardiff who were robbed of a Grand Slam they had come to collect and also had their chariot badly vandalised during the visit to the Welsh capital?

    ... Apparently this heinous crime was carried out by a gang of 15 Welsh guys dressed in bright red shirts in broad daylight in front of 75,439 people who gathered around the gang attack and just stood there cheering, clapping and singing hymns and arias as if they were encouraging the gang.

    A police spokesmen for the South Wales force said this “This sort of attack is just sickening……..One of the victims was a young lad called Owen Farrell who was on his first trip to Wales and has been traumatised by the whole shocking experience and to make matters even worse his father was forced to watch the entire crime from start to finish and could not lift a finger to protect his son from the sickening and relentless battering meted out by the conspicuously dressed red shirted gang”.

    The police spokesman continued, “We are following a number of leads and believe this crimson shirted gang may be linked to a similar attack in Twickenham a year ago”.

    Very surprised Donnacha Ryan isn't included. And Rory Best is unlucky. The 3 ahead of him aren't much better than him if even.

    Richie Gray is lucky since he wasn't as good as last year and got injured towards the end of the 6 Nations. Lot's of fitness issues in that squad tbh

    Tim Visser very unlucky not to be in there either. The Flying Dutchman is a cracking player

    Yeah - he seems to have picked a few that are/been injured

    Pretty good selection but I would have had Best in (don't know how Tom Youngs got in)

    Alun Wyn would be my captain

    Maitland lucky to get in as well

    Lions started their warm up with a game against the Baa Baas and Farrell has proved himself to be an utter twunt already. He nearly got sparked out for his troubles too. If Gatland picks him at 10 for the test matches the Aussies will murder him.

    Q Reds should be a cracking game

    Lions 23 Australia 21

    Lions out of jail with the 2 missed penalties, especially the last one.

    2 penalties against O'Driscoll were just plain wrong.

    Great game, hard to make level the performance was given the Aussies are missing so many (before and during the game)

    5 missed kicks for them

    Our scrum was shit (but maybe they just fronted up)
    Backs were flat and no creativity
    We gifted them 2 tries and lapsed concentration
    Phillips too slow ball and bad box kicks but case was poor
    We were awful at breakdown
    Genia is phenomenal

    We should have known before game/learned quickly that ref favours attacking rugby and penalises defending team for trying to get it. That will be different with next weeks ref tho

    But fuck it - we won and that's all that matters - good there is so much to work on as well

    Think Roberts and Bowe will come into team for next game

    Israel Folau, superstar.

    Besides that, nothing caught my eye. Ohhh, the big Lions winger who had a go and scored your 1st try after fielding a kick, wouldn't want to get in his way.

    All in all, most of the game was fat blokes rolling around on the ground and no 10s (trying to) kick goals.

    My Aussie mate reckons Falou was shit at AFL so decided to try Union

    Our kicker did fine thanks - maybe if O'Connor didn't bottle it and Beale could kick the grog and not kick his team mates his actual goal kicking might be better!

    Folau was most definitely shit at AFL mate, possibly the shittest ever to play at the highest level. As gifted as he is physically, no one can play that game without growing up with it.

    The AFL only wanted him as a publicity whore/headline grabber to make news for their new Sydney team and to hopefully draw more Pacific Islanders to the game. Failed on both counts.

    Anyway, before that, he was 1 of the brightest talents Rugby League has ever seen. The youngest ever to play for The Kangaroos and would no doubt have been 1 of the greats if he had stayed.

    Was always going to shine in Rugby, he's a freak.

    He's a money grabbing whore though and will sell himself to the highest bidder everytime. Only signed with Rugby NSW for 1 year, c*** could be in Japanese rugby, back in league, or playing for The Harlem Globetrotters next year, nothing would surprise.
