Wallabies and British & Irish Lions teams named for first Test on Saturday

I agree. Why not start O'Brien at 8 over Heaslip?

I can't understand the Phillips appeal. Not the best kicking game and sloppy distribution. Will his size be useful against the likes of Hooper, Palu and Gill? Doubt it. Youngs hasn't been great in the warm up matches but his passing and kicking has been as sound as ever. A much more complete choice.

Absolutely magic.

England too strong for Argentina in first Test in Salta

It's not sniping. Sniping is when the scrum half actually tries to take the gap. And if there is a gap then yes I would like that.

From what I can see those steps only work when the team is going forward over the gain line. Youngs' problem is that he tries it when England are going backwards and he inevitably gets scragged by a guard. But when done right those runs tear defences apart. The also take the pressure off the 10 because the defence is so petrified of the 9. Will Genia vs Wales anyone?

The British and Irish Lions power past the Western Force in Perth

Yes there clearly is. Obviously I'm not writing off BOD as a player but Davies is a much greater attacking threat with his pace.

For me that's a worrying difference.

I'm not sure O'Driscoll is the guaranteed test start most people are implying. He's not got the same pace now he's approaching his pension. Don't write off Davies. Him at 13 with either Roberts or Tuilagi at 12 would give huge cause for concern for the ozzy centres.

British and Irish Lions start strong with convincing win over the Barbarians

You understand this is a rugby forum , right? Calling other people fickle sort of defeats the purpose of having a discussion. Who are you to say you're better?
