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 ...
AUSTRALIA V BRITISH & IRISH LIONS The British and Irish Lions will pit their vast experience against a Wallaby team featuring three debutants and a rookie flyhalf in their bid to seize the momentum in today’s first Test in Brisbane. The tourists, chasing their first series win in 16 years, go into the opening match of the three-Test series anchored by a powerful set-piece, quality leadership with three Lions captains in their ranks, and the calming experience of centre Brian O’Driscoll and lock Paul O’Connell. The two Irishmen have 222 Test caps between them, with a dozen for the Lions, giving them a decided edge over the Wallabies, who won the last series in Australia in 2001. O’Driscoll and O’Connell are joined by five other survivors from the series against the Springboks in South Africa four years ago in scrum-half Mike Phillips, prop Adam Jones, lock Alun Wyn Jones and back-rowers Tom Croft and Jamie Heaslip. The forward pack alone has played a combined total of 403 Tests, and 17 Lions Test ...
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
A Welsh-heavy Great British and Irish Lions side opened their Tour with a straightforward 59-8 victory over the Barbarians in Hong Kong. The Lions ran in eight tries – with seven of them coming from Welshmen. Captain Paul O'Connell was the only non-Welshman to get over as he scored the opening try of the Tour while scrum-half Mike Phillips and winger Alex Cuthbert helped themselves to two tries each. Jonathan Davies, Dan Lydiate and replacement Alun Wyn-Jones also went over on a day when Warren Gatland decided to start with nine Welsh players and 11 Lions debutants. England's Owen Farrell had an up and down performance at fly-half before being replaced by Ireland's Jonny Sexton who himself missed three, admittedly tough, conversion attempts. Kahn Fotuali'I off a lovely set-up from former All Black Joe Rokocoko scored the only try for an enthusiastic, but ultimately outmatched Barbarians side who should have had Schalk Brits sent-off for a clear punch on Farrell after just eight minutes only for referee ...
