It's almost time for the British & Irish Lions Tour of Australia for 2013!.|
Full fixture list :
A lot of games there and its going to be an excellent tour. As far as the squad goes, Sky Sports have picked theirs, which i dont agree with 100% but its pretty close. Starting 15 for me would be :
11. Bowe (if fit)
7. Robshaw 8. Heaslip 6. Warburton
5. Alun Wyn-Jones 4. Gray
3. Adam Jones 2. Hibbard 1. Jenkins
Obviously, you've got majority Welsh in there as they have the form players. People keep talking about Cian Healy in the front row but, seeing as the Welsh forwards destroyed everyone during the 6 nations, you've got to keep those three together IMO.
I have picked Dan Biggar at 10 because he is the form 10. Farrell lost his head when the going got tough in the 6 nations, so i think its too soon for him to start, where as Sexton lost his place in the Irish team to a small ginger child.
Bottom line is, Gatland has some serious talent to pick from. I'm expecting the squad to be majority Welsh, half a dozen English and two or three from Ireland and Scotland.
Really looking forward to this tour, think it could be a good one.....
