HSBC Lions Monthly - Episode 4

HSBC Lions Monthly - Episode 4

The latest edition of HSBC’s Lions Monthly features chat with legends of the game and brings you fascinating insight into the goings on behind the scenes on previous tours. We hear from Martin Johnson, Brian O’Driscoll, Warren Gatland and Rod Kafer.

With the Six Nations now over and the build up to the door becoming a key focus, we’re in a better position to pick our favourite fifteens, as well as squad or team captain.

Former Lions captain Martin Johnson shares his thoughts, and George Gregan chats to Lions Head Coach Warren Gatland, hoping to reveal who he already has in mind for his squad.

Featured in this episode:

• Australian legend George Gregan interviews Warren Gatland in Hong Kong
• Martin Johnson discusses the recent 6 Nations in the context of Lions selection
• Former Wallaby Rod Kafer reveals some of the mindgames and tactics used in 2001
• Lions greats talk about their best and the worst room mates on tour
• Brian O’Driscoll: Tackle These – the Irish legend attempts to answer tough questions on his career

    Conrad Smith because we need a 13 or Picamoles best 8 in the world possibly

    Yeah Hartley has done nothing for awhile. Easily best or Hibbard over him. I love bowe, but form has to count so cuthbert if fit must be in. Hard to keep Jonathan Davies out too, at least in the 22. Sheridan over Jenkins as well.

    Hartley was my choice but is just out of form. Also Croft is a better 6 than Robshaw and Corbisiero is a brilliant loosehead. Visser on the wing maybe instead of Bowe

    I would have Andrew Sheridan over Gethin Jenkins seeing as he is starting ahead of him for Toulon... Jenkins is often 3rd choice? Plus Sheridan is an absolute beast in the scrum, will have Australia shaking in their boots!

    Most of that is alright, but a fw of them have been injured for a while now, will they be on form when they come back? Main one though, Dylan Hartley??? Seriously? Why?

    15. Leigh Halfpenny 14. Tommy Bowe 13. Brian O'Driscoll 12. Jamie Roberts / Manu Tuilagi (depending on form in warm-up matches) 11. George North 10. Jonny Sexton 9. Mike Phillips/ Ben Youngs (depending on form) 8. Ben Morgan 7. Sam Warburton 6. Chris Robshaw 5. Geoff Parling 4. Alun Wyn-Jones 3. Adam Jones 2. Dylan Hartley 1. Gethin Jenkins That gives a fierce scrummaging team... great balance in the back-row and a world-class back-line
