Lions tour squad announced

Vital Squad Member
No real surprises with the full squad. Was bound to be mainly Welsh after the 6 nations and with Gatland as coach. Good mix of English and Irish however to spice things up.

Wilkinson left out though which could prove intersting...

Forwards: Dan Cole (England), Cian Healy (Ireland), Gethin Jenkins (Wales), Adam Jones (Wales), Matt Stevens (England), Mako Vunipola (England), Dylan Hartley (England), Richard Hibbard (Wales), Tom Youngs (England), Ian Evans (Wales), Richie Gray (Scotland), Alun-Wyn Jones (Wales), Paul O'Connell (Ireland), Geoff Parling (England), Tom Croft (England), Toby Faletau (Wales), Jamie Heaslip (Ireland), Dan Lydiate (Wales), Sean O'Brien (Ireland), Justin Tipuric (Wales), Sam Warburton (Wales, captain)

I had a chat to Ryan Jones in Cardiff at the England game - he was injured which may give reason for his omission from the lions squad.


Vital Reserves Team
Seven back row forwards and only two fly-halves. That's way too light, is Gatland expecting Jonny to turn up as a replacement?
