England! Battered and humiliated after their thumping in the Millennium Stadium against Wales at the close of the Six Nations, England have turned their 2013 around since March with a run of four wins and a single loss to the All Blacks at Twickenham. Three of those four wins came against Argentina - two in South America and one back in south-west London - as Stuart Lancaster's mission to build greater depth to his squad ahead of the 2015 Rugby World Cup continued. Shorn of a total of 12 players to the British and Irish Lions tour of Australia by the time Brad Barritt, Billy Twelvetrees and Christian Wade had been flown out (and not including Dylan Hartley's suspension), Lancaster was able to let the likes of Marland Yarde, Kyle Eastmond, Billy Vunipola and more get a taste of Test rugby against the Pumas in their own backyard. Winning the a Test series in Argentina for the first time in 32 years is not an accomplishment to be sniffed at. The tour was also a chance for Lancaster to let the likes of Chris ...
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.
Brumbies v British and Irish Lions: Preview and prediction Posted on Jun 17, 2013 The final tour game prior to the beginning of the test series sees the Lions travel to Canberra to take on the Brumbies, and given the strengths of the two squads selected, it could well be their biggest challenge to date. British and Irish Lions It’s been a busy week for Warren Gatland’s side who, thanks to a number of injuries, have had to call up the likes of Christian Wade, Billy Twelvetrees and Brad Barritt as cover, whilst Welsh legend Shane Williams has been drafted in with the sole purpose of taking on the Brumbies, and allowing other Lions the chance to rest up ahead of the first test. All four of these players start against the Brumbies, whilst full-back Rob Kearney makes his first start on tour, and Stuart Hogg and Ben Youngs get their last opportunities to try and force their way into Gatland’s test squad. They face the talented duo of Jesse Mogg and Henry Speight in the Brumbies back line, and if they can ...
In a move that surprised the rugby world, veteran Welsh winger Shane Williams has been added to the British and Irish Lions squad. The 36 year old former World Player of the Year was due to work as a radio pundit an the 1st test against Australia this weekend but has changed his plans after receiving the call up. Lions coach Warren Gatland confirmed that Williams will play against the ACT Brumbies on Tuesday then leave the camp on Wednesday. Williams, who has been playing 2nd tier rugby in Japan with Mitsubishi Dynabours, is 1 of 3 players called up with English backs Brad Barritt and Christian Wade also named to play against the Brumbies. Irishman Rory Best will captain the side which also features Sean O'Brien and Robert Kearney, making his 1st start of the tour, while Simon Zebo is named amongst the replacements. Billy Twelvetrees, who only arrived in Australia on Friday, will line up at inside centre with George North, Jamie Roberts, Tommy Bowe and Manu Tuilagi all battling injuries of varying degrees ...
Lions call on veteran Williams Legendary Wales winger Shane Williams has been named in the British and Irish Lions team for Tuesday's tour match against the Brumbies in Canberra. Williams, who retired from international rugby last year and is currently playing for Japanese club Mitsubishi Dynaboars, will start on the left wing after answering an SOS from coach Warren Gatland amid a growing injury toll. The 36-year-old is one of three new faces in the touring party, with England backs Christian Wade and Brad Barritt named at wing and centre respectively against the Brumbies after being added to the Lions squad on Saturday. But while Wade and Barritt will remain with the squad for the rest of the tour, Williams will head back to Japan on Wednesday. "We just said we needed him for one game, he was already half-way here (in Japan)," Gatland said of Williams' shock call-up on Sunday morning. "We spoke to Shane and just said 'the proviso is he comes in on Monday and trains, plays on Tuesday and he leaves the sq ...
