All Our Sporting Summers Rolled Into One

We can't afford to get cocky. Last weekend may be as good as it gets this summer. But Chris Froome in the yellow jersey and a home Ashes win would surely set the seal on a British summer of sport every bit as good as the one in 2012 we thought we'd never get close to experiencing ever again.

There is getting it wrong and there is getting it very wrong, and yes, safe to say, my fears and predictions for the last Lions Test were firmly in the latter. It is scant relief to know that I was far from alone, and not an excuse either, but it is a lesson in passing judgements without talking to any of the guys on the ground.

No O'Driscoll

Will Carling

Why is the O'Driscoll selection of such significance? Because when you walk out to play a 'must win' game, which this third Test certainly is, you need to have a certain number of hardened, experienced winners in that lineup. The Lions have lost Warburton, O'Connell, and Jenkins already, and O'Driscoll was one of the key 'old heads' left to include.

The Lions Tour Is All About Trust

The fundamental issue that breaks or makes any Lions tour is trust. Sounds obvious, as trust in any rugby team is vital, but there are the added elements of bugger all time and historic enemies at play within a Lions squad.

Me and the Lions

Will Carling

There is something very special about a Lions tour, and despite my on-the-field melt down, I made some great friends, and learnt a huge amount about myself and my rugby. It was exactly the kick up the arse that I needed to realise that I did want to carry on playing and that I was not the centre of the Universe (something that I still struggle with from time to time!)
