British & Irish Lions New Zealand Tour 2005

Who coming over from the UK and Ireland?
I couldn't get tickets, it's the same deal as trying to tickets to the opening night of a U2 tour. Impossible!

Over a quater of the people in this country (1 million people put their names in) put their names in to a ballot, and if you gat drawn you were allowed to buy 2 tickets. Half of the tickets went to Lions fans, which is fair enough, and I do look forward to seeing you guys. Even seat holders had to give up their seats.

I tried, but didn't get anything, I guess I'll be standoing outside the ground trying to sneak in.

Should be great!

I was amused to see the Lions have a game against Manawatu. That game will have a cricket score!

Well, Cullen once played for Manawatu ... maybe he'll return and play a blinder?

hahaha yeah true, he will sneak on the Irish plane to England, the team will come to NZ, where makes a mysterious dissappearance in Wellington, and changes his look as he runs on the field for Manawatu. Score Manawatu 15 Lions 10

And so we have the Test squads!

Lions: Robinson, Lewsey, O'Driscoll, Wilkinson, Thomas, S Jones, Peel, Jenkins, Byrne, White, O'Connell, Kay, Hill, Back, Corry
Replacements: Thompson, Rowntree, Grewcock, R Jones, Dawson, Greenwood, Horgan

New Zealand: MacDonald, Howlett, Umaga, Mauger, Sivivatu, Carter, Marshall, Woodcock, Mealamu, Hayman, Jack, Williams, Collins, McCaw, So'oialo
Replacements: Witcombe, Somerville, Gibbes, Lauaki, Kelleher, Muliaina, Gear

I do hope the Lions win but I don't think they will. They've been very unconvincing this tour and the team selection seems way off.

Lions will probably lose, but not by as much as the NZ media are saying.

I would love to see the excuses they (the NZ media) come up with if the Lions somehow pull off a miracle.

They will say "Oh well we lost, and we probably deserved to by keeping lard arse Marshall at scrum half". If NZ lose, a major reason will be Marshalls slow ball.

Mistake 1: Marshall for Kellerhet
Mistake 2: No Spencer

These could prove costly.

That first half was the most passionate & perfect half I've seen from the All Black's since the Dream Team back in 1997.

Nice of Justin Marshall to check on BOD when he was being stretchered off. Good man.

Not so nice that BOD was in that situation in the first place, although I don't think he would've made much difference.

The Lions would probably still have lost. Maybe not by as big a margin.
