Lions Tour 2017

As many of our old boys seem to reside in the Land of the Long White Cloud what do they think of the Lions chances during the Tour
Has Gatland made the right choices to give the All Blacks a decent game?

Very disappointed Joe Launchbury has missed out but I do think the Lions could have a successful tour.

Re: Lions Tour 2017

Hi young David. You won't remember me I expect, but I was a mate of your big brother Malcolm and played cricket and football with him in Cross Roads in the old days, late 40s early 50s and was in the same team when we won the West Bradford Junior League in Cricket in 1952. I remember you as a little fella in those days in the early 50s before I headed down under in 1954. I missed the arrival yesterday of The Lions team as I was in hospital for a few days but home this morning so I hope to see some rugby on the TV at the weekend. I like the look of what I have read of the Lions team and I have a good regard for Warren Gatland and he knows better than anyone of what he is up against. The AB's are a very good side but need a run.Please give my regards to "wrickle" I walked in on him and surprised him on a visit in 2013. That was nice and we had a reunion of some of the lads from those days. Cheers.
