England should have very few representatives in the squad and probably none in the Test team. Hopefully Gatland will play an expansive game and not his boring Gatlandball. Thst was how the Lions beat SA under McGeechan in 97. Consequently Russell has to be starting at 10 with Sexton as back up. The penalty count conceded also counts against England.
Bigoted idiot. Itoje is one of the first names on the starting XV sheet. As is Watson. Removed

When he is on form I'd say Itoje is, but he didnt seem to do much this 6N

My! What a bigoted view!
I would also have Itoje in the squad but during this 6N he hasn't been near his best, although probably been the best player for England.

Haven't been interested in the Lions for decades now.

Must be less than pleasant being an England player in the squad, knowing many of the others loathe you for being the nationality you are.

I'd be happy for the Lions to become a Celtic side.

And, like the Celts with England, I'd be behind whoever they were playing.
Spoken like a true exponent of cha vyball, the daily mail and Brexit. The hate is in your head, just like it is in every other fool indoctrinated by the sun, express, etc into believing the culture war you are being whipped up into, wrapping yourselves in a flag, rather than calling out your real enemies the tory party who hate you, who have made you dumb and paranoid and yet who you vote for.....

It must be eating you up having no option but to admit
Eng have been poor since the WC2019 semi-final. Let's be honest as I told you before the world cup actually started,
"lets see what they do against Fra in their group stage"
The only reason they got to the final is they didn't get to be beaten by Fra in the group, otherwise they would have met Wal in the S-F & got whipped
Paper cracks
Pseudo female FD,

Remind me how Scotland did, oh yes couldn't get out of the easiest group.

We have won 2 tournaments since.

That'll be 2 more than Scotland.

Simple, WC2019 $aracen$ aka England played one less game, they didn't play France who would have trounced them, they would have had to play Wales who would have trounced them and they didn't disclose the $aracen$ debacle which they should have in September until the day after the 2019WC

Now let's talk about you now not admitting that you stated that Farrell is nailed on Lions Captain

18 months.....now I believe that includes the SA v 19-16 Wales WC S-F where they need a last gasp pen to win against injury ravaged Wales and the pasting that SA gave to England in the WC 32-12.
Yes I would say those two SA matches and the lates form is the only yardstick

p.s.
Do you want to bet France will not beat Scotland by 25 points+, Pseudo?
I already have money on it.

Onenofbus is a qualified ref, and its not you.

One of us claims to be 55 year old Irish women, and that's not me, yet you have the audacity to called me pseudo.

Hilarious

Until you have the decency to discuss things factually, without personal abuse I will no longer enter into any discussion.

I think you mean "one of us"
I have always said I am not a qualified ref (I don't lie)

As I said I know loads of guys reffing (in Scotland) who were "given" their qualification due to such severe shortage of refs, now some of those have hardly even played in their lives but have some inkling of the laws

Where you..well

Pseudo female FD.

Please do not misquote me.

PS learnt any laws yet? PG admitted he was wrong vs Wales, yet you insisted he was right. Owens now agrees May's try was good yet you insisted it wasn't, indeed still do.
Ooops there you go copying me (flattered) 1st I called you Walter Mitty (obviously) then you do, 2nd I called you Pseudo-Ref (obviously) then you do

Do you want me to tell the forum EXACTLY when you said those "forecasts" just to prove to the HYS what you are

PG admitted the laws WEREN'T broken (he said he should have asked Faz.com if his boys had finished their tea break)

Mays try wasn't good

Fair play..you gotta love Trytastic's resilience/ thick skin. Reading back through the comments he's taken a real beasting but he's back for more. Def not a troll but equally not a referee either...no one that one eyed could possibly be. That said I understand he regularly refs the 4ths at home...they struggle to get an official appointment but he's always available..they havent lost for 3 years
Pseudo is like the 6 year old son, who you saw pinch the chocolate bar from the table but when asked

"Have you got anything to tell me Timmy"
Timmy "NO"

"Are you sure"
Timmy "YES"

"Now Timmy, tell me the truth and I won't get mad as long as you tell me the truth, did you take the chocolate off the table?"
Timmy screaming "NO NO NO"

You wouldn't know a fact if it sat on you. Please feel free to prove anything i have ever said to be not true. You can't as they are all true, but why let ignorance and lack of Rugby knowledge get in your way? Some of us played been involved with Rugby for 50 years, our views may differ, but your abusive rantings are unnecessary and shows a distinct lack of class.

Don't get tempted to pick too many Welsh players. Collectively they are a very good team, but their are better individuals in the other home nations in most positions.

Mostly Welsh & Irish on that flight with a couple of English players, bring anyone else SA will hammer us. Scotland realistically should have been banned for 5 years after the behaviour at the World Cup threatening litigation in Japan, it was the darkest hour in rugby history. Thankfully Japan went and battered them off the park to prove a point.
