Oh how I love the anger and bitterness from some people who somehow feel certain selections (or lack of) are a personal attack against them and\or their nation.
You are never going to please all the people all the time.
Personally i would like less Welsh players in the squad as some of them might get a "I must be the dogs *bull whips*" ego boost when they are playing shit-average at best. And they will be complacent next season.
Maybe (just maybe) Gatland's hands were tied by WRU who only let him go if he favoured a few and got a decent representation??

Anyway - come the first test, the nation representations might end up being heavy on Eng & Ire and a sprinkling of Welsh and a token Scot? Who cares, I will support them most probs whatever happens. I honestly wouldnt care if there were no welshies in the test squad!

Not too many complaints with that except Launchbury should be going - I'd have him in ahead of Henderson or Lawes (or even AWJ - are we sure he will be 100% fit by start of tour? - tin hat firmly in place... :D )
IMO you need at least one or two old fashioned hard *bar stewards* out in NZ of all places, and all five 2nd rows picked are more athletes than that particular profile.


The game has changed, OSR, no real enforcers these days, just 6 camera angles. ;)

This. Whitelock and Retallick aren't exactly enforcers, they're freaks.

Retallic is a modern day enforcer.. kaino in some ways with hits.
Tuipulotu and Faumuina come on and smother choke and close down the forward battle, in the past anyways, I hope they are firing.
And Coles is just a dirtbag with good charisma.
They're our enforcers

We'll ha ya Bazzmo, there's probably more Scottish blood in our team, most of our European boys are Irish/Scottish heritage, except Retallic he is Neanderthal

No because I said thats wrong. Wales are over represented because lets face it Gatland is sucking some ass.

Pfffttttt mun, Dan is only normal when he's getting grief and aggro (Just for being Dan!!) what you been saying is half a breakfast to Dan, he's usually (by now anyway?) half-way through the a la carte (usually a 84oz steak?) and getting ready for some REAL bloody aggro!! I mean, be fair, you didn't use a single cuss-word yet and Dan, at the same stage, has invented a half-dozen new ones!! Nahhh......... that's not upsetting Dan mun, give him some crap he can REALLY get his canines into!! :D :D

Feel for Scotland a bit, maybe AWJ could have been replaced by a Grey brother. Dont know the rest so well except for Maitland.

But as you know Bazzmo, Rugbydan is a good honest guy.

Really looking foward to seing how good these guys are.

Unlike other tours where there is a couple easier games then the harder provinces, you guys have 1 games grace, then bang..

Wales are the team thats been here more recently, so they will know what they are in for, which is good, the Lions have more depth and probably a lot more talent so the hiding they got from A Waikato B team (for Wales) shouldnt happen to the Lions.

Enforcers now are nothing like the old days. Our locks just outplay their opposites and that's good enough to get under the skin, don't need to be dirty to piss the opposition off. That kind of player is burden on the team nowadays.
The only real enforcer nowadays is the ref.
