I dont know Oracle's one. But If there is no Owens, then there is somebody else in his place.

Hmm I think he'd have liked a world cup winners medal, a European medal as well. It's true there isn't much missing from the CV. Warburton has been spending too much time with Austin with these over the top comments. Smile

How underwhelming is that selection if true....Boks all the way...

If the squad is correct Slade could well be starting the tests at 13 with Henshaw at 12. The fact he's not back playing makes his omission understandable but there does appear to be a huge Manu Tuilagi shaped hole in that squad. You almost have to start with DVDM.

My problem is... i think Slades are far better suited to 12 (in the Farrell role) than he is for 13.

Huge surprise no Sexton, sad but not surprised no Ford. Disappointed to see Farrell is selected on reputation. No JD2 I think will surprise a few as well, Manu as a gamble was on many people's mind but Aki goes instead. Those scrum half selections look better than the earlier "leak".

Did Gatland select the wrong Jo(h)nny, Hill over Gray is absurd. Could have been worse I suppose, somehow.

No Billy Vunipola

Very surprised no Ryan. Especially with Johnny Hill and Lawes going instead. I had a sneaking feeling Conan might go so I'm claiming that as my one sort of outside prediction. Mako is very lucky to be going. Fagerson over Sinckler is a shock as well.

Given the options, I don’t like the back row

6 / lock - Beirne, Henderson, Lawes
Flankers - Curry, Watson, Tipuric
8 - Conan, Faletau, Simmonds

Would have gone with one of Navidi / Ritchie / Underhill in place of one of the 8s at least

Could just look at the above as how he wants to play 6/7/8 though

It is a representative team of the whole of the UK and Ireland. I am sure we will all disagree with some of the selections and some very good players are staying at home.


But yes, we should be happy with it.

As always, there will be some changes prior to and during the tour as well, so some other fancied runners may still make it.
