    Ah del horno - excellent. Prefer him to Kaladze. I think we'll get the midman before getting the striker!

    Arse knows. His anglo bias has been so pronounced ever since he took over its rapidly reaching a point where i hope the Lions lose - and im far from being a petty 'celtic' nationalist.
    I've never supported the lions. This year, decided to give them my support, and SCW (scum Clvie Woodard) just proved he has his favourites yet again. Hope they break throught he centres every minute in the first test.... dropping Gavin Henson.... what is he doing?! Absolute disgrace!

    Go to Southampton you bias pri*k!

    What do you mean??? Greenwood is a specialist centre, considered to be one of the best around - given his experience and abilities, and nick-named "the key", i.e. he unlocks enemy defences...
    Thomas does have a good physical game, but he still is not quick enough - its a shame patterson isn't on the tour otherwise it would have made the decision for itself.
    I dont think peel is too lucky to be there...he's a great scrum half, but he's just from the "matt dawson" school of halfing (i.e. lots of small breaks.etc.etc), compared to cusiter being from the "rob howley" school (amazing work disrupting the opposition scrum), aswell as being an absolute animal in defense - he has one of the highest tackle-counts in the games he has player, which you must agree is remarkable for a scrum half!
    and for one last time...just incase you haven't grasped this you taffy idiot...WILLIAMS AND BACK ARE BOTH BLINDSIDE FLANKERS, THEREFORE THEY CANNOT PLAY TOGETHER. EVER! thats like suggesting playing cusiter at scrum half and peel at fly half - they are very different positions.
    p.s. dont go on about all this pro welsh player stuff...i've played with several of the welsh players and they're not all as special as your blinkered view makes out.
    and now to prove you wrong....

    1. Gethin Jenkins
    2. Shane Byrne
    3. Julian White
    4. Paul O'Connell
    5. Ben Kay
    6. Richard Hill
    8. Martin Corry
    7. Neil Back

    9. Dwayne Peel
    10. Stephen Jones
    11. Gareth Thomas
    12. Johnny Wilkinson
    13. Brian O'Driscoll
    14. Josh Lewsey
    15. Jason Robinson

    Replacements: Steve Thompson, Graham Rowntree, Danny Grewcock, Ryan Jones, Matt Dawson, Will Greenwood, Shane Horgan.

    Frustrating to see cusiter not even on the bench...maybe SCW has him lined up for a start in another test, possibly with hodgson - since they are both on top form and play so well together....
    I cant believe they actually went with wilkinson at IC...despite my belief that he is a rugby god, surely his lack of experience at this position will let him down???

    p.s. whats your contract for hossy?

    With Saturday looming, I think it's about time that we share our favourite All Blacks jokes. Here are my top 3:

    An All Black, a British and Irish Lion, a stunning blonde, and an old lady are the only passengers in a train carriage. The train goes under a tunnel and the carriage is plunged into darkness – no one can see anything! Suddenly a loud slapping sound is heard by all. As the train leaves the tunnel and light returns, everyone turns to see that the All Black has a huge red slap mark on his face. The blonde thinks, “Eww. That dirty All Black tried to touch me and must have touched the old lady instead, who must have slapped him.” The old lady thinks, “That filthy All Black must have tried to touch the young blonde, and she must have slapped him.” The All Black thinks, “I bet that Lion tried to touch the young blonde and she slapped me mistakenly, thinking I was him.” The Lion thinks, “I can’t wait till there’s another tunnel so that I can slap that stupid All Black again!”



    Sir Clive Woodward and the All Blacks coach (Graham Henry) both die and go to heaven. First of all, God takes the All Blacks coach around and shows him his new home – a dilapidated 2-bedroom hovel, with a tattered All Blacks flag flying from the top window. “You are very lucky to have a house,” says God, “most people have nothing.” Coach Henry looks around and spies a huge palatial mansion, high above his, on top of a mountain. The grounds were astoundingly beautiful, with herbaceous borders and even a fountain! The house itself was extremely large and beautiful, with its own turrets and ivy growing up the walls. From the uppermost window flew a British and Irish Lions flag. “Ah,” stammers coach Henry, “I can’t help but notice that Clive’s house is a little better than mine?” God looks at him in amusement. “That’s not Clive’s house,” he says, “that’s mine!”



    Three young kids are playing on the street in Auckland when they are hit by a train, killing them instantly. As they make their way up to the pearly gates, st Peter stops them and says, “You weren’t meant to die. This isn’t your time. You may go back to earth by running over to the cloud on your left and jumping off. Make a wish and speak it out loud as you jump off and I shall see that it is granted.”

    The first kid jumps off the cloud and screams, “Rich lawyer”. Sure enough, 20 years down the line he’s a successful and rich lawyer. The second kid jumps off the cloud and screams, “Brain Surgeon”. Sure enough, 20 years down the line he’s a highly renowned brain surgeon, respected world-wide. As the third kid goes to jump, his left foot hits his right and he stumbles. “Stupid, clumsy ********,” he chides himself. Sure enough, 20 years down the line he’s playing back line for the All Blacks!

    i am a big cricket fan, and i really want England to win.
    i think all depends on vaughan's form and that of harmisons
    these two are the key. if they do well england might win, else aussies will. and lets not make too much into their recent losses because the champion team they are they strike when it REALLY matters.(rem 1999 world cup!!)

    This is a crazy line up by SCW. Cusiter should be there I think, as should Henson. I also haven't seen any reason on why Kay should start and not Grewcock?! Still can’t get over the fact that although Clive knows Robinson at fullback that he's lacking the balls to put him on the wing to cause the AB's some worries out wide?!

    Nothing is deffo yet but London Irish, Munster, Connacht, Bath or Quins are all possibilities, mind you I might go back out to NZ.

    Just like Kleberson, Djemba Djemba and Saha were? Iv only really seen him play once or twice so cant comment on his ability, but could be another one of Fergies recent failures.

    Totally agree with all those, aslo Andy Sheridan should be on the bench. At least Ryna Jones got in on merit, but saying that I think Henson deserves to be in instead of Horgan.

    Yeah, the other girl is not phased by Serena at all! Great match.. I lost all faith in Henman after 2 sets. Good man to prove me wrong! I'm rooting for Marat Safin this time round.
    If Safin plays to his best he really can beat anybody, even Federer. He definitely runs hot and cold though, so we'll have to wait and see. Good test for him in Philippoussis today.
