England have been struck by a trio of injury-enforced withdrawals for Saturday's QBE International against New Zealand headed by confirmation that Alex Corbisiero has been ruled out. The injury crisis at loosehead prop has deepened with Corbisiero joining Mako Vunipola on the list of absentees, while wings Marland Yarde and Christian Wade have conceded defeat in their fitness battles. It is the loss of Corbisiero, a star of the British and Irish Lions' tour to Australia, to a recurring knee problem that will be felt most acutely and England will be hoping desperately that Joe Marler is given the green light to face the All Blacks.
Gatland: Lions can roar again Warren Gatland: Turns attention backto coaching Wales Warren Gatland believes the British and Irish Lions will have what it takesto end a 42-year wait for a Test seriesvictory over New Zealand. This year's Lions squad are still celebrating a 2-1 success over Australia - their first Test series win since 1997 - achieved with a number of exciting young players playing crucial roles. Leigh Halfpenny, George North, Alex Corbisiero, Sam Warburton, Dan Lydiate and Toby Faletau all shone and Gatland expects them to be the world-class talent at the heart of the 2017 touring squad. Asked if he thought the Lions could win in New Zealand, current Lions boss Gatland said: "Yes, I think if we get things right in terms of the preparation and stuff. "If you look at how young this squad is, a lot of them could be around in four years' time. "If they are playing well enough and you have got four more years' experience on some young heads, some young shoulders and they are in their late 20s, t ...
Best of the Weekend: Lions win first series in 16 years Posted on Jul 8, 2013 All eyes were on Sydney this weekend as the British and Irish Lions ended a 16-year wait for a series win, powering to a 41-16 victory over Australia, and taking the deciding game of the series. Coach Warren Gatland’s team selection came under extreme scrutiny and criticism last week, but his charges rewarded him for his faith, and outplayed Australia comprehensively over the 80 minutes. Tries for Alex Corbisiero, Jonathan Sexton, George North and Jamie Roberts secured the victory for the Lions, whilst the unerring boot of Leigh Halfpenny added some much deserved gloss to the score line. If there was one area of the side which had not come in for criticism during the previous week, it was the ability of the side to gain the upper hand at the scrum, and they certainly didn’t disappoint. Not only was the front row of Corbisiero, Richard Hibbard and Adam Jones responsible for winning ball on 100% of their own scrums, but they a ...

Lions break Aussie hearts Sydney - The British and Irish Lions claimed their first series win since 1997 when they overpowered Australia 41-16 in the third Test on Saturday to seal a 2-1 victory. The Lions were quick out of the blocks at the Olympic Stadium with prop Alex Corbisiero crossing for a second minute try and fullback Leigh Halfpenny kicking 12 points to open up a 19-3 lead after 26 minutes. Australia fought back with James O'Connor scoring just before halftime and inside centre Christian Leali'ifano kicking the home side to within three points at 19-16 with 25 minutes remaining. But the Lions finally found the attacking rhythm that they lacked in the second Test loss and flyhalf Jonny Sexton, winger George North and centre Jamie Roberts crossed for second half tries as the Lions rode out comfortable winners. "It's pretty indescribable. There was a lot said about selection in the week...but I think we proved the Northern Hemisphere can do pretty well," Lions captain Alun Wyn Jones said in a pitc ...
British and Irish Lions head coach Warren Gatland has sprung one of the great surprises in the tourists' history by dropping Brian O'Driscoll for Saturday's series decider against Australia. O'Driscoll was the favourite to lead the Lions in the final Test at Sydney's ANZ Stadium after Sam Warburton was ruled out with a hamstring injury, but instead he has been omitted from the 23 with Alun-Wyn Jones named captain. The O'Driscoll-Jonathan Davies midfield partnership used for the first two Tests has been broken up, with Jamie Roberts picked at inside centre following his return from a hamstring injury. Davies moves to outside centre while Sean O'Brien, Alex Corbisiero, Richard Hibbard, Toby Faletau and Mike Phillips are promoted to a starting XV showing six changes to the side beaten 16-15 in Melbourne. It is a radically altered team but the dominant talking point will be the decision to axe 2005 Lions captain O'Driscoll for the first time in his 14-year professional career. The conundrum facing Gatland was ...

The starting XV comprises eight new Test Lions and will be captained by Sam Warburton. In the backs Leigh Halfpenny, Alex Cuthbert, George North, Jonathan Davies and Jonathan Sexton all make their Lions Test debuts, while experience is provided by Brian O’Driscoll and Mike Philips, who have nine Lions Tests between them.

Alex Corbisiero is set to make his first start, while fellow injury replacement Ryan Grant is named on the bench. Stuart Hogg gets an outing at fly-half with Sean Maitland slotting in at fullback, while the side is captained by Brian O’Driscoll in the midfield. He links up with 2009 centre partner Jamie Roberts. “The Reds game was always going to be a big challenge, and I was delighted at the victory and the way we were tested,” said Warren Gatland. “It was a very physical match, as we knew it would be. We now move on to Newcastle and another challenge. “This team to play Country includes three players – Richie Gray, Alex Cuthbert and Stuart Hogg – who are starting their second game in a row, plus another, George North, who came off the bench early against the Reds. “This is the nature of Lions tours as we adapt to inju ...
