lions tour

Warren Gatland's choice of backs for the British & Irish Lions Tour might have caused some debate but not a lot of raised eyebrows. The same cannot be said for the make-up of the forwards.
Understandably people are annoyed and upset but what did we expect? Could you really expect Warren Gatland to leave behind the likes of Tommy Bowe, Richie Gray and Dan Lydiate? It's not that he does not have other fantastic options open to him but quite simply he has to pick the best squad that he feels has the ability to defeat the Wallabies.
