Lions 2021

Post by JP14 » Mon Jun 14, 2021 9:41 am

Considering the other Lions thread was about squad speculation, I have decided to start a more general thread regarding the tour this year.

I'm really struggling to get up for the Lions. Partly because of it not being the same without crowds but more because of EJ completely messing up England in the 6N has changed the line up of the Lions to the extent that disinterest comes to mind.

Maybe it will change but for me Genge should be there (as should Youngs who was picked but I suspect he didn't fancy just making up the numbers this time.)

Youngs ruled himself out of selection.

That team won't be far off the test team and it looks meh on paper! It really is a poor Lions squad that's been picked

Agreeing with Scott1 for the third time. Lions? :smt015 :smt015
Leicester Tigers 1995-
Nottingham 1995-2000
Swansea (Whites) 1988-95
A game played on grass in the open air by teams of XV.
