Not really. That's what I said. You just misunderstood. I could say that makes you a tool but I won't.

Notice I said I used the selector from the players that The Telegraph give to choose from.
The info written by Shane Williams says: The Kiwi born centre used to play for the Blues. Now an Ireland regular he played very well alongside Robbie Henshaw in the Autumn series. He's a little different, a good attacking player but also deceptively strong and defensively very good. He could be a dark horse to start in the centres.

Having him and Joseph at 12 and 13 means they can change throughout the game.

You misunderstood because when I said you could bring in Halfpenny for Hogg you then said Halfpenny wasn't in my original line up. Well yes, that's why I said you could bring him in.

I haven't kicked off. I just back my opinions up and have strong opinions. The amount of stick I get on here just for having an opinion is ludicrous but it doesn't bother me and I don't complain.

I is nothing to do with you having an opinion, its about how you berate and abuse those who have differing opinions from you, but this is a forum so I am not going to get into a bun fight with everyone having to read all this. So lets go back to topic

To be honest this Lions tour needs a more modern approach and to be more realistic with the current events but still try to keep the traditions alive.

By this I mean we still should have the "uncapped" player in there - maybe Underhill should go, But we need to look at how hard the game is and taking the HIA and the current Tackles view from the ref's and with that in mind and the cost to keep bring out more players in mind the Lions should be looking at a squad of around 40 players at least and the add 1 Uncapped and maybe 2 Wildcards.

I think with the likelihood of players dropping like flies and HIA taking even more we need a bigger squad so we are not trying to get extra guys trained in the system being used in a rush.

To be fair to ellis he is annoying, doesn't listen and continues his one eyed crazy thoughts but he does not abuse people imo..

Does anyone know when the initial Lions Squad will be announced. I hear that they are due to depart Heathrow on Tuesday or Wednesday 30th or 31st of May which is the week after the premiership and Pro12 finals, so it's got to be way before then. Usually an initial squad of 45 is announced and then that's pared down to 35 or 36 nearer the time?
