Re: Lions 2013 - Disaster waiting to happen?

Re: Lions 2013 - Disaster waiting to happen?

Not sure how you work that out - The Scots are great team players and always contribute more to the total than the sum of the parts - Mutley aside!!

No Welsh, they don't have any belief they can beat the Aussies.

Re: Lions 2013 - Disaster waiting to happen?

The Lions is not all about winning though, it's far bigger than that IMO. TBF, if it was all about winning they'd have got rid of them years ago. The players love it and the fans who buy into the concept also love it. For me it's the best thing in the rugby calendar and the thing I look forward to m...
