British & Irish Lions 2013 - Bring It On

Well, with hours before the game in Hong Kong, do they have enough to beat the Baa-Baas and then the Aussies? Are there too many Welshmen in the squad? After their poor 6 Nations should there be more Irish in the side than runners up England?

Discuss ......

Too many Welshmen in the Welsh national side for my liking...

O'Farrell lost his cool again! Fancy having a go at Schalk Brits!

Unfortunately I won't see much of it with Sky having the rights and me having better things to do than decamp to pub accommodation during the summer months.

You must be the only one of us with Sky Taff!

Not at all. Wouldn't spend the money on it. Joined a small group of mates, including a couple of publicans who had kicked SKY out of their pubs, at another pub and watched it on their big screen. Couple or three pints and some banter between the Nations - we were missing a Scot though - and some great rugby. Whether it's good enough to beat the Aussies I'm not sure.

Pleased to see O'Connell back to form and Phillips was awesome. Why can't he produce quite that level for Wales defeats me. Farrell just about kept it together and kicked well overall. Roll on Wednesday.

If I've said it once, I've said it a thousand times, Sky's all or nothing approach to their subscriptions is a shot in the foot from us that won't pay the full rate for only a few hours of viewing.

But unlike the six nations when it's cold and wet, and nothing much else to do, I'm out in the countryside for 20+ hours a week in the warmer(?) months.
