Re: The British Lions Newzealand Tour
I was there. No cohesion, and it really showed that the Lions had only been together for a few sessions.
A case of trying to meld the players into a team.
The most frustration thing at the moment is how much Sir Clive Woodward can lie about how he picked the squad. THIS IS NOT AN ANTI-ENGLISH RANT!
Yup, I'm welsh and I feel more welsh should be on the tour, and probably at the expense of some english players. But moreover SCW said he would pick on 6 Nations form, then ignored that fact that wales won, Ireland were second and England were fourth.
Then he offered the back door to english players, but not to any others.
Then he stated, on the record that Bret ****bain was on the reserve list as second row cover....now that O'Kelly is out...he picked....Simon Shaw of England.
Still I will be in the pub in my lions shirt cheering my heart out whether there be one or fifteen welsh, one or fifteen english...
