BRO RADIO SPORT: Wales have made eleven changes for the clash against Tonga on Friday evening with Newport Gwent Dragons' Hallam Amos making his debut on the wing in a side captained by Ryan Jones. The 19-year-old, who featured for Wales U20 last season, made his debut for the Dragons aged just 17. He comes into the side to line-up in a back-three alongside British and Irish Lions duo George North (Northampton Saints) and Leigh Halfpenny (Cardiff Blues). In the midfield Ashley Beck (Ospreys) makes his first start of the Dove Men Series after featuring from the bench in the opening two games. He is joined in the centre by Cardiff Blues' Owen Williams who will earn his third cap after making his debut on the summer tour to Japan. Perpignan's James Hook has been named at fly-half alongside Lloyd Williams (Cardiff Blues) at scrum-half. There are six changes in the pack from the side that beat Argentina by a record margin last weekend. Bath prop Paul James and Scarlets hooker Ken Owens come into the starting-l ...
Priestland gets No 10 jersey Rhys Priestland will start at flyhalf ahead of James Hook for Wales' match against the Springboks on Saturday. Hook was named among the substitutes, with Dan Biggar falling out of the match-day squad altogether. Ospreys star wing, Eli Walker, will make his debut in place of Alex Cuthbert, who is out injured. The 21-year-old Walker will start on the left, as George North shifts to the right. Wales have nine players in their starting line-up who started against the Springboks in the 2011 World Cup pool match, the last time these teams met. Wales pushed the Boks all the way before losing 17-16. Ten of the team remain from that which started their last game against England in the Six Nations decider, which they won 30-3, and nine of them were in the starting line-up for the British & Irish Lions which hammered Australia 41-16 to clinch the series 2-1 in July this year. 'We always say we like to test ourselves against the best and Saturday is going to be just that with a huge game ...
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 ...
The British and Irish Lions have won the final Test in Australia, courtesy of tries by Alex Corbisiero, Jonny Sexton, Jamie Roberts and George North. Leigh Halfpenny converted 3 conversions and scored 5 penalties. :)
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 ...

RUGBY UNION: British and Irish Lions captain Sam Warburton declared it “half a job done” after his team nicked a 23-21 victory over Australia in Brisbane when Kurtley Beale missed a penalty in the final moments of the game. The Lions’ performance was highlighted by an outstanding try from George North but there were plenty of nervous moments, with Beale missing not one but two penalty kicks in the final few minutes as the Lions clung to a two-point lead. “That was entertaining, that’s for sure,” Warburton said on Sky Sports 1.“It was too close for comfort and the last 20 minutes were really hard. You have to give it to Australia, they went all the way and we’ll expect a lot more in the next two Test matches. It’s half a job done.”

British and Irish Lions wing George North has overcome injury ahead of the first Test against Australia on Saturday.

Lions coach Warren Gatland confirmed that Williams will play against the ACT Brumbies on Tuesday then leave the camp on Wednesday.

Injuries mounting up for the Lions!!! Jamie Roberts became the latest British & Irish Lions threequarter to pick up an injury when he hobbled out of the 47-17 win over the HSBC Waratahs in Sydney. The 2009 Test Lion had to leave the field with six minutes left to play after damaging his right leg. He will have the injury scanned today. "We will get Jamie scanned on Sunday. The medics thought it might have been a hamstring, but he said he has never pulled a hamstring before, so he is not kind of sure. It is fingers crossed it might not be that," said head coach Warren Gatland. The Lions have already had injury concerns in the past week over centres Brian O'Driscoll and Manu Tuilagi, while George North has been nursing a hamstring tweak - not what the coach needs or wants a week out from the first Test. "Manu trained on Friday and his shoulder is still a bit sore. George's hamstring is still a bit tight and so we are still progressing with them with the medics," said Gatland. "Our hope is that both of them ...
RUGBY: Ireland wing Simon Zebo will make his British and Irish Lions debut against New South Wales Waratahs on Saturday. Zebo joined the squad as cover on Tuesday and goes straight into a strong side containing up to a dozen likely Test contenders. With the first Test against Australia on 22 June, George North (hamstring), Brian O'Driscoll (groin) and Manu Tuilagi (shoulder) are all not risked. But fly-half Jonny Sexton has been passed fit to start. The Irishman will line up alongside likely Test half-back partner Mike Phillips
George North issues rallying cry as injury crisis threatens to engulf No fit fly-half as Sexton fears grow.
British and Irish Lions name team to play Combined Country XV Posted on Jun 9, 2013 Warren Gatland has named his team to play a Combined Country XV on Tuesday in Newcastle. 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 ...
Western Force v British and Irish Lions: Lions player ratings Posted on Jun 5, 2013 15. Leigh Halfpenny: 8.5 No more needs be said about his kicking – 100% from all corners of the pitch speaks for itself. Will never have the explosiveness that Hogg does, but did show some lovely touches in attack when joining the line. 14. Tommy Bowe: 7.5 Grabbed a try and looked menacing every time he got the ball. Great to see him threatening again like that, given his lack of game time over the past year. 13: Brian O’Driscoll: 8 Can anyone still claiming he is past his best stop now please? Scored two tries, the first involving a beautiful exchange of hands with George North and the second needing intelligent and well-timed support play to follow Tuilagi through a hole. 12. Manu Tuilagi: 7.5 Was kept reasonably quiet, but look how much space that opened up for the men around him. His partnership with O’Driscoll, if given time to gel, could become one of the most devastating ever seen. Beautifully soft hands after ...
