Shane Williams and Christian Wade called up and on the wings vs the Brumbies

The hand off I think you are referring to was actually on Warburton with that first amazing individual try. Sorry but I'm a Tigers fan and won't have them being blamed for something they didn't do :)

IMO 6 Croft 7 Tipuric 8 Heaslip. When was the last time you saw SOB run in a 60m try? He is a great player but I think Croft's other skills (not just smashing into people really hard) are what make him stand out as an all round 6.

That said SOB and Tipuric and Heaslip were awesome together.

How's this for a plan... Croft starts and runs the Auzzie's ragged for 60minutes along with Roberts in the centres alongside BOD. Then you bring on two very pumped players in SOB (6) and Manu (12)... ouch :)

British and Irish Lions thump Combined Country in Newcastle

It's more to do with the fact that Australian team play together all the time and usually the Lions players are smashing into each other rather than with each other. The Lions team only has about a month to prepare and gelling as a team is really important. So I think that is the reason that the home team are usually favourites to win! Just my opinion though :)

Firstly, don't end your comments with such a condescending statement! I'm not sure who you think you are or who you think you're speaking to but I'm not a 5 year old and I'll post whatever I want to post as long as it's not offensive, racist or rude!

I also feel the need to point out that it's called banter. I guess you're not aware of the term but it's something us rugby players have between each other. It is not meant to offend and if you had a sense of humour and removed your head from your own... you'd understand that.

AND Robert playing better, my arse!!!!!!

p.s. 4 minute clip and there is 1 off load, we're not talking passes, we're talking off loads in the tackle. Poor example! :)

Simon Zebo set for Lions debut as Billy Twelvetrees joins the squad

After Manu and BOD's partnership I'm not sure Roberts has the test 12 nailed down as comfortably as you think. He offers much more in terms of offloads and drawing defenders, opening space for other around him! The rest of that team looks great though, I can't wait!!!!

Manu is 1 dimensional but Roberts isn't? Find me a clip of Roberts off loading...anytime :)

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

Really, no one, I count 8 above! Why come and comment on something you're not bothered about?

Because Jones is, imo, only a marginally better scrummager and more is needed against them which is what Cole offers.

Wasn't settling for parity, think Cole would dominate any Australian loosehead and gain just as many penalties as Jones would. Plus I'm a rugby romantic and hope Lions tests don't come down to which team has the best boot!

As for Alex, I would totally agree and although one player can't win a game I think the six nations might have had a slightly different outcome had Corbisiero been playing against Jones. Plus better rapport with Walsh!

I think Cole offers more options. Aussie's scrum not the greatest and Cole offers much more in the loose than Jones. Against someone like South Africa I would possibly choose AJ ahead of Cole!

Halfpenny = Awesome. Takes the pressure off Sexton/Farrell so they can concentrate on ball playing. Kicking like that means he's got to be a sure starter!!! I would go as far as to say that this game showed Gatland what his starting backs should be. I think North and Bowe provide a variety of options compared to AC and who needs a winger to bosh the ball up when Manu is there. BOD, although David played well, is just in a different class and reads the game so beautifully! Maybe start Roberts at 12 and then after 50 minutes bring on a fresh Manu! Wouldn't want that in my channel.

15. Halfpenny
14. Bowe
13. O'Driscoll
12. Roberts (50 minutes Manu)
11. North
10. Sexton
9. Sniping game Phillips, quick ball Youngs
1. Jenkins (50 minutes Maku)
2. Best
3. Cole
4. POC
5. Parling
6. Croft
7. Tipuric
8. Heaslip
