Morning all fellow aviators who like the funny shaped balls!
Seeing as a storm of controversy is currently taking place in the press about the Lions Squad make up selected by Mr Gatland, I was wondering what the feelings were amongst those of us who have hours to debate such?
As a proud supporter of the Welsh team (I even support them when they win!) I'm bemused by Warby's selection as skipper. He rarely lasts for more than 4 matches without a long term injury, and now he's a shoo-in for a test place. Can't work it out.
Oh you mean warren gatland, obe? Yeah top bloke, he got that obe for services to nz rugby and sport, not yours. It's a devious ploy by the mighty all blacks and nzrfu to make sure no European country ever beats the mighty ABs. You guys want to pay $1000/night for a shitty hotel room in Auckland for the lions tour??? Kiwis will win one way or another Got introduced to wayne p here in Fiji once as the esteemed Fiji coach. Short conversation 'sorry bro, I'm a kiwi but I've never heard of you before, but while we are here talking I'm taking that girl tonite Gordon tightarse...thinks shit don't stink and he's god...'I'll tell you something buddy...' Another all black player thought he could make a go of an island resort...nah never heard of you either 'here's the offer on a take it or leave it basis'...$400k against assets worth $2m, he took it. They don't teach business school at nzrfu
Taking players from the England bench,12 from the team that finished fourth in the 6 nations and just 2 from the most improved team in the Northern hemisphere.Well that really is going to have the All Blacks running for cover isn't it.
They'll compete for 60-70 minutes then the big northern hemisphere chassis will run out of oomph. There is also the freak that is Beauden Barrett to deal with...if he's fit and they mark up on him...there's going to be lots of space elsewhere. The schedule as well is crippling...it's a big ask to win a game let alone a series against any All Black team.
