Lions tour of New Zealand 2017


Don't get me wrong, I'd have Kruis and Itoje like a shot (actually I'd have Launchbury and Itoje, but that ship has sailed), I'm double guessing Gatters and assuming AWJ as a given.

In all sincerity (and I mean this), BoyBrumby's knowledge of rugby is truly astonishing! Easily the most knowledgeable poster here in terms of rugby!

Anybody want to play a Lions tour sweepstake? You get your own player and then hope he scores points / makes metres / tackles / doesn't get carded over the whole tour.


International Vice-Captain
I'm in. Got the app for the tour on my phone . Need to have some distraction right now. :)

Cricketer Of The Year
Give it to Burgey if no-one else takes it - he's slightly unbalanced about rugby so it suits him.
