First topic message reminder :

My wishlist:

I hope AWJ is named captain to keep the Irish and English lads in check.
I hope Robshaw gets picked, he deserves to tour at least once at this point.
I hope the refereeing is strictly on a level playing field.
I hope NZ are made accountable for any incidents where they break anyone's collarbone and put them out of the game for 13 months.
The Lions to be at the very least competitive and win one of the first two tests.
I'd like to see Tadhg Furlong get a run out.
Would like to see an uncapped player in the squad.
No charity caps, Tom court, Shane Williams etc.
I hope Gatland comes up with a much more interesting and variable game plan than on the last Lions tour.
Dylan Hartley calls a ref the C word on the last day of the six nations and misses the tour.

It might depend on how you define intelligence. But put it this way: there's no such thing as a police cat.

There's your proof - cats are too smart to sign up for being targeted by drugs gangs or blown up by a well hidden bomb.

Basterdes are usually too busy coughing up/spitting out balls.  To tell the truth, don't know which is worse.

Are miaow and Dowlais really View and Mikey?

View and Mikey loved to slap each other's backs a lot and commend each other on their 'excellent' points.

I thought we had seen the end of that double-act but perhaps not...

I think View was the brains of the outfit, but only in so far as 'in the land of the blind, the one-eyed man is king'.

Weird to presume an individual's gender either way other than to say that generally I assumed most of this board would be boys, because, well, it is rugby after all...? I take no offence at being suspected of being a boy or a girl in and of itself, but weird assumption to make in the first place.

Miaow sounds like a girly name for a start. I dont think its weird to guess someones gender. I think it would be weirder if it was all guys here given that there have been female posters in the past.

No reason why you should be offended, I have been mistaken for a woman myself. Irish name to blame.

Why can neither of you understand that someone might not be willing to engage in a proper discussion after they've had ridiculous accusations thrown their way after they had tried to posit an opinion to engage in a discussion?

If you really want my opinion you can go back and read the last few pages and piece it together from my comments. In the meantime, probably best to give it a rest, because it's really labouring a point that neither of you seem willing or perhaps able to understand.

Maro Itoje is never on the ground as Maro Itoje can float along on a cushion of his own greatness!

World rugby have declared that the offside line is no longer the rear most foot, it's wherever Maro Itoje says it is!

Maro Itoje has his own cloud, all he needs to do is blow out while quickly moving his hands in front of his face before pointing forward

Maro Itoje once visited Ayr and every rugby player that has come from there was immediately bestowed with his world class-ness.

Isn't it great how the Lions unite fans against the SH enemy?

Once every four years fans join forces to transcend national rivalries and share their innermost secrets to their auld enemies without fear of recrimination and instead garner a supporting shoulder and an understanding wink.

... and so the fans characterise how their heroes suddenly dismiss their normal enmities for harmony of purpose and abandon of natural nationalism...

No seriously...

I'm trying to check the odds on Farrell. My thinking is that Hartley will be dropped for George, Farrell (who has been vice-captain throughout the 16 game run and captain when Hartley's left the pitch), will be made captain and if England can kick on and win the Championship or even another Grand Slam, Farrell has as good a chance as any one. He's surely guaranteed a place on tour and probably the team at either 10 or 12, whereas the other major contenders (Warburton and Alun Wyn Jones) are all in fiercely competitive areas.

Yes, at least he wasn't subbed at just over half way through the match, outplayed by his opposite number, and shown up by his replacement.

Not sure how Hartley was outplayed to be honest when the line out and scrum were silky smooth nor is that the making of a captain, making poor decisions like AWJ did is going to be more pivotal.

If everything was silky smooth, why was he subbed? Don't put it down as what they usually do.

Gatland is in a bind with the captaincy. AWJ is his team captain, so it will be hard for him to select the captain of another Nation without seeming like a vote of no confidence in AWJ.

I think he might go with someone slightly left field to avoid that problem and not pick a recognised captain rom any of the home Nations.

Possibly Sexton if he is fit. Or Connor Murray.

Hartley is at least a winner as a captain at international level. Not sure we need a specialist in failure.

You don't get points for winning at half time...

It's what Jones does almost every game so that is the reason, remind me how many times the English set piece was challenged yesterday?
