Dylan Hartley out of Lions tour after allegedly swearing at Wayne Barnes

Perhaps I have too much faith in rugby players but I just can't believe anyone is THAT stupid. "Fucking cheat" is the kind of comment I can imagine happens at the end of every scrum at that level.

Yes, but to get banned for 11 weeks because you swore at your opposite number seems seriously harsh. It's the same as the Parrisse incident.

I know Hartley's no brain box but I find it incredibly hard to believe that any player is stupid enough to direct a comment like that at a referee. I find it impossible to believe he wasn't talking to Tom Youngs.

TJ Perenara makes big hit then later gets punched in the face by Liam Messam

It's a shame Perenamanana is so gobby because he's a great player otherwise.

Tom Croft's brilliant try and try-saving tackle against Harlequins

If you're looking for the form 6 then look at the last international games. Croft was nothing, O'Brien was nothing and Lydiate didn't even play. Selecting anyone other than Tipuric and Waburton as your flankers is nonsensical to me.

Prop Coenie Oosthuizen's knockout run and two tries vs the Hurricanes

Bloody hell . The intensity of super rugby really is worlds apart from anything we see in the aviva or rabo.

British & Irish Lions squad announcement - Sam Warburton named as captain

Out of interest, who would your captain be? My pick before the tour was Rory Best. I thought he was a definite starter for the tests. Performs every game for Ireland and seems to be someone others look to.

British & Irish Lions squad announcement - Sam Warburton named as captain

After seeing a Gatland interview I really thought he would include Wade, shame. Whilst he doesn't deserve a spot it would have been amazing to see him out there.

Haven't read the comments so apologies if there's repetition.

My thoughts:
Zebo for Bowe.
Wilkinson for Farrell.
Care for Phillips.
Laidlaw for Murray.
Any prop eligible to play for Stevens.
Best for Hartley.
Lawes for Gray.
Hamilton for O'Connell.
Robshaw for Croft.
Beattie for Lydiate.
Morgan for Heaslip.

+2 Scotsman, +1 Englishman, -2 Irishman, -2 Welshman.

Elliot Daly clearance kick lands straight in the bin

I fail to see how Lancaster thinks twelvetrees has more to offer than this guy. Him and Manu would be devastating together.
