Farrell's omission aside, that's gotta be very close to the starting 15 for the tests from what I've seen.
I'd have Webb over Laidlaw as sub scrum-half, he's far more dynamic.
Rather surprised there's no CJ Stander anywhere in that list, he's been immense in his time on the pitch and makes a great impact sub.



He's played 3 games in a row i think and wasn't as dynamic as he was previously.

I'd rather Biggar than Sexton, i don't think he's got the right mentality, he folds too easily. It's tough to say any of those aren't a good shout though, I'd maybe have Joseph in as a personal preference but i suppose he'd offer more off the bench. I'd like to see something more from halfpenny than just 'solid' as he's a quality player.

Don't rate Henderson, and no doubt the welsh boys will be looking at coming back in at 6 and 7

I really was just talking about the starting 15 there and would have Faz in over both of the other fly halfs.
I missed the game Biggar played in, but am not really a fan - I think he's too mouthy - and needs to play the game rather than appealing to the ref for everything. But I've not been impressed with Sexton either thus far.

I think Jonathan Davies has been pretty solid and was unlucky to get injured in the previous match, although I don't see much between him and JJ, they're both good on their day.
Maybe JJ is a bit more light footed to JD's straight line approach but I'd rate Davies defensively.

Looking forward to Itoje/Kruis lining up for the Lions, they're an awesome partnership.
I've only seen Henderson play in the first match this series and he didn't impress me in that, just realised there's no Alun Wyn Jones?


Suffering from a small case of mood poisoning, must be something I hate.

wyn jones has played a couple, i'm expecting him to be in the 23 for the first test at least and possibly the 15 alongside kruis. but maro and kruis together is a handful so it is all to play for. JJ offers something a bit different to Davies, Davies is a good player, very good in fact but he doesn't have the ability to hit space JJ does, not many of our centres do. He is better in defence but there isn't an awful lot between them in either regard.
