Post Six Nations: Lions XV

I still don’t think that everyone in Wales has recovered from Saturday night to be honest. What a weekend it was. The Decider. Wales v England. And the game certainly lived up to its expectation.

I was lucky enough to have a ticket for the game and the ‘atmosphere’ in the stadium was truly unbelievable. The entrance of the Welsh team was out of this world and I doubt that even a Superbowl match would create such a buzz in the stadium. I remember standing up for the anthems and getting blown away with how loud ‘God Save The Queen’ was. But the response was amazing, and I’ve watched ‘Hen Wlad Fy Nhadau’ a few times after Saturday.

Anyway, here’s my Lions XV:

  1. Gethin Jenkins
  2. Richard Hibbard
  3. Adam Jones
  4. Geoff Parling
  5. Alun-Wyn Jones
  6. Ryan Jones
  7. Sam Warburton
  8. Jamie Heaslip
  9. Mike Phillips
  10. Owen Farrell
  11. George North
  12. Manu Tuilagi
  13. Jonathan Davies
  14. Leigh Halfpenny
  15. Stuart Hogg

Also I quite like the idea of Alun-Wyn Jones as the captain as Shane Williams has suggested. What is difficult about selecting a Lions side though, is that if I were to name my side tomorrow, there’d be a few changes from this side.

Please feel free to comment with your Lions XV.

    Can’t agree with Heaslip at the moment. Think Toby has been a lot better- wouldn’t rule out Ben Morgan if he can get fit asap! Same goes for Lydiate.

    Sexton over Farrell, Think he will handle pressure better.

    Also struggle to imagine Hogg outplaying Halfpenny in those warm-up games.

    Play your best players in their best positions!

    Apart from that- Great Team!
