Post Lions to call up extra players
Gats has said he'll call up new players, so who we thinking?

A fly half is a given I think what with Farrell's injury, so Russell or Ford?

Centre/wing cover maybe?

What players are there, he took a year to select his squad, who proved not to be up to the demands of the game within three games. If he played all forty odd of the squad on the pitch at the same time he'd still come up short of the Blacks with his game plan.

The BBC was pushing the theory that he would only be calling up players presently in Australasia. So only Scots and Welsh.

At a guess I reckon Finn Russel, Roberts, Williams, Cuthbert, Perhaps Nel?

From England you'd have to say Ford and Launchberry would be front runners?

Kristian Dacey, Cory Hill, Tomas Francis, Gareth Davies, Allan Dell and Finn Russell to join Lions.

Just WOW.
I think I just lost a little respect for the badge. It is no longer the best of the best. Gatland will get punished for this.
Not Finn Russel though, that selection is justified

So what with injuries and other events we now having a Lions touring squad that has more Welsh than any other nation with half the coaching staff being Welsh. Sorry but that is ridiculous. Compare achievements since the last tour:

Ireland: 2 6n wins, ended AB and England world record winning streaks, largest points scored against ABs, beaten Aussies
England: 2 6N wins with 1 GS, 2 second places, world record equalling winning streak, 2nd team ever to win all games in a year, whitewash the Aussies, most points scored and fewest conceded in 2016, close losses to NZ
Wales: Shipped an average of 5 tries a game between the end of 2016 6N and the start of the 2017 6N, suffered largest home defeat since 2006, 5th in the last 6 Nations, worst possession-points ratio of the 3, longest run without scoring a try of the 3, completely annihilated repeatedly against NZ.

Seriously, it's a joke. At least with the disastrous 2005 tour the England team had achieved something between the tours.

Please understand this is Gatland, and he is not Welsh.

Fewer and fewer people will argue. Nothing against the lads called up, but some of them are not even the best Welsh alternatives, let alone the best of British and Irish.
