Is this the same Marcus Smith who did exactly the same thing as 12 years ago the other week at the Rec
You're referring to the blood injury and HIA that forced him off to be checked and play with Lang at 10 which required him to wear a scrum hat to protect the wound this week? Yeah completely the same situation, I am sure Quins really wanted to play without him for any length of time due to an accidental injury. Bath are lucky he wasn't on the whole 80... idiot. Removed

The six nations tournament is shaping up nicely. The final match in Paris will see the winners of that match crowned grand slam winners.

We can spend all day discussing form from each of our relevant country's players, but we all know it is irrelevant, as the mistake made was to make WG coach. He will do what he has done on the last 2 tours and pick far too many of his cronies.

Lest not forget we drew in NZ and won in Aus despite Gatland, not because of him.

Though to be fair there is virtually no chance of any tour this year.
I think Gatland is more that qualified to pick who he believes fits his system.
How many GS & 6N have you coached, any European cups .... how about Premierships titles ...

thought so dipstick

Personal abuse, always classy.

I wasn't suggesting i should replace him, just somebody who understands the Lions ethos.
Hey Trytastic claims to be a leading ref and a coach mind.
You should take note of what he says its all good comedy, well he makes many of us laugh.

That's the point, we all know SCW made a mistake taking too many past it Englishmen, but WG copied it on the last 2 tours with too many past it and not good enough Welshmen.

Copying something that was universally panned is not a good plan

Genge ?

Not even in England’s top 5 looseheads....

For all his posing, posturing, stupid haircuts and pretending to be a hard nut he’s simply not a test standard prop....

The Lions need props who can cope with the Bok power at scrum time, Rory Sutherland, Wyn Jones and Joe Marler would be my 3.... hopefully Marler will be ok to tour by then.. Gatland said players not in 6 nations can still go
We love you Owen Farrell even if the rest of the world wants to spit in your face. I've got a photo of you !! Removed

If this motley scratch England team does continue with the likes of Owinge Farrell, I wonder if he could be thrown some high sugar sweets and maybe a baby's rattle to just keep him quiet and just shut up. He's a penalty machine, just like the infringing grappler mugger at the breakdown Itoje - who's really asking for a red card soon. Also Silly Sausages Genges has to be dropped. For his sakes.
You really don't have a clue do you laughing troll.. Removed
to ENGLAND WINNERS - To all you England haters out there.England play to beat the world.. Farrell is still the best 10. Take Finn too, if there is any tackle dodging to be done."

You too freaking funny. Farrell best No.10?? Where? In your great hairy orifice? Me rolling on the ground laughing. England also does a terrible job of playing to beat the world. Maybe you mean egg beating yeah?

there are many props who are very good scrummagers and others are very good around the field but the best all rounder in my opinion is Sinkler.

Mind you Steve D a few days ago I read a comment on a welsh hys from you saying along the line of all the comments on said hys about England so like a fool I read back a couple of hundred comments and the only mentions of England were in relation to the article ie Scotland beating England! So maybe we are residing in a cranium rent free!! Again I expect you to remove this comment as per

Ian McGeechan has put his Lions team up. Nah.

And he includes Farrell.
Sitting on every hys all day 24/7.

And clearly knows nothing about Rugby either.
A complete waste of everybodies time, and oxygen, don't get me started on that.

You reckon? England were awful against Scotland, better against Italy but they always going to comfortably beat them despite what some of your mates said. Wales 2 from 2 and at home. Wales therefore got to be favourites?

But a more relevant prerequisite is to be worth a place. Warburton retired so irrelevant to this Lions tour. AWJ not a hope, too old too slow too past it.
As for Farrell currently not good enough. End of discussion, nothing to do with how articulate a player is. Laughable.

Tragic. I know most of all ACTUAL rugby fans disagree from time to time but usually it's a reasonable argument(well unless it involves England/Farrell/Saracens with ABE).

Thats the issue here. You seem to think you are not associated with those above names, even though you get pre-moderated
You cant stop at calling the obvious trolls who by the username history or their linked username history are here for one reason, no! no!, you have to bring a poster into the equation by stating how $teady Jone$ inexplicable selection of $arrie$ is unreasonable
