Lions Squad

Post by fleabane » Tue Apr 21, 2009 1:21 pm

Just thought I'd moan about the players who have been left out, included, and those we have'nt bought.

(Still waiting for the announcement).

Oh, My, God!

How the hell have Powell and Worsley got in over Croft?

Back are fair enough, but the back row is awful. I fear a hammering!
#48 FTW :)

Seriously NO CROFT!

I mean I can understand Haskell not going! Very disappointed!

Also very disappointed to see Earls going over Armitage! Earls is having a good season but Armitage is hardly having a bad season and he had a good six nations!

AND Vickery! The man only lasts 25mins and those are penalty fuelled minutes. I'm happy overall with the selections but I think there are a few wasters going!

Yes, only four Wasps, despite their team playing so brilliantly this season! :smt018

They should have been really lucky to get even one.

Too heavily weighted with Munstermen I fear!!! Why no Mike Blair? Two old F/H who only kick the ball, wheres the running FH is that Flutey???

Why is Shane Williams going?? Poor season this year.

Will post something sensible when I stop rolling around the floor with laughter. :smt005

May I congratulate Harry.

May I also congratulate Wasps, yet again, loosing seems to be the way forward with your career.

Just off to the bookies to put my mortgage on a 3-0 South Africa win before the odds become too short...

Tigers now need to prove who is best by beating Cardiff and Munster.

Think Harry got it above Care because of his attitude. Care still immature, and waiting to get laid out if he continues patting oppo forwards on the head, as he did again at the w/e to Seabass.

Armitage just not as tough as the other FBs?

Tom Croft's omission a mystery.

Cips not selected - good!

Vickery must have been appointed the new bag carrier for Geeks - only reason for him to go.

I feel alot of the Munstermen got in on that difficult quarterfinal tie with the Ospreys, how they had to show skill, acumen and high ability in that difficult win!!!!

A few lucky players I feel.

Worsley over Croft, Mears and Rees over Ford, O'leary over Blair all very peculiar selections

Vickery and Adam Jones ? - we must be struggling!

Thankfully no Borthwick

One good decision is POC as skipper - but some of the others I'm m]not sure the Boks will be quaking in their boots
