    We'll probably get our act together after that, so I still think we'll beat New Zealand, we can't play that badly twice!

    What about Owen?
    Owen! Pah! LD is playing out of his skin! Owen didnt really make any big breaks of the scrum or make the decisions by himself! Back had to relay them all from the touchline!

    LOL!

    You want to play Williams still after that performance against ARG!!?!
    Thomas on the wing! You have got to be having a laugh - no gas and the NZ 3/4 will kill him. Why on earth you would move Lewsey to 12, okay he did play well for wasps at 12, but then why play Thomas? Henson would be a better choice and get rid of Thomas!

    You have a point with Grewcock but maybe Kay could fit in aswell?

    Peel is too much of a lightweight im afraid, Dawson is playing quite well and copes well against the Southern hemisphere teams.

    Thompson at hooker - have you not seen him throw a ball?!

    Corry is a donkey! LD has a greater range of skills, is also fitter and more aware of positional play - I am an 8, so notice this quite alot.

    I kind of agree with Williams at 7, that is because Moody is not as good on the deck, although he is better at re-starts but gives away too many pens.

    Woah! Woah! OK, OK, I didn't see the game so I can't make an accurate judgement! I was just wondering.....he was so good during the 6 nations!

    It's cool! I just thought you got a bit angry, is all. Anyway, we're going to be on top form for the All Blacks whoever plays! I have confidence in us! ROAR!

    That was a stressful match!!! 25 - 25!! - i lost a few fingernails!!!

    --> Jonny was good
    --> Corry needs to be at number 8
    --> Moody was good but he needs more support after kick off's
    --> use cueto instead of shane williams - more bulk but still speedy
    --> keep byrne - forget thompson

    Just my thoughts on the match!!!

    Corry!? Hes bloody useless! He didn't even understand that to be any use in a scrum at blindside flank that he had to push in at his prop!

    I see a few people have Henson in their Test teams, what's that about? All he does is run across the pitch and offers no cutting edge attack in the centre. Ollie Smith, Darcy and Lewsey would all be preferable. Any views?

    Whilst Smith was impressive, he is an outside centre not an inside centre, I think the test no. 12 should be Josh Lewsey, the power and pace of that man is something which would terrify the all blacks. Henson has shown himself to be a liability in certain matches, only an impressive all out attacking welsh side made up for it, also he is probably a fullback than a number 12.

    Smith can play 12 as well as 13. I would argue that he would actually be a better 12 in the mould of the traditional "crash-ball" inside centre, giving very good go-forward ball and offering a direct point of attack, whereas Henson offers nothing. Lewsey could play 12 but I'd have him at 15 personally.

    Williams on the wing, you nuts? Howlett or Gear or whichever All Black has the good fortune to play against him would just run over him. Be funny to watch but it wouldn't help the Lions cause.
