Lions Tour infographic featuring the Welsh contingent vs Australia

The Lions have a very Welsh flavour this year, featuring more players than in the any of the other tours since 2001. This infographic that Sporting Index have come up with shows that Wales' record against Australia isn't great though, with just two wins in the last twenty five years. 

With ten days to go until the first Test, do you think the Wallabies will have the mental edge?

Or like a lot of fans, do you think the ingredients are just right, with the English, Irish and Scottish players at Warren Gatland's disposal adding to the overall strength of a formiddable unit?

Tell the Welsh boys that Aussies are really English and they'll do fine.

Going by these stats.... How many times have Scotland beaten Australia in the last 3 year?

They have played twice in the last four years and Scotland have won them both. I am Scottish and I will not pretend that my country is the best in the world at rugby, but I have the right to be proud of that.

It's a bit nonsensical really - Clive Woodward took as many English players as he could - justified and unjustified. They'd recently beaten NZ, won a world cup, and still had their arses handed to them.

Im not sure what value this has. Who are Sporting Index anyway?? All this shows is Wales have played Australia a disproportionate number of times in the last 10 years. Maybe if they'd played more in the 70s the stats would be different. They've been very close and perhaps with the help of a few players from the lesser nations this very small divide between Wales and the Aussies on home ground can be overcome....
