Blues coach John Kirwan has delivered a warning to the Lions after his team’s loss to the Bulls in their Super Rugby game at Loftus Versfeld on Saturday. England could include destructive centre Manu Tuilagi on the bench for their Six Nations clash with Italy. Calf injury forces Mealamu out of Blues tour.

SHOULD KIDS BE WATCHING MORE RUGBY ON TV? Remember when televised rugby was restricted to highlights of two British club games on a Sunday afternoon? Nowadays, with subscription TV, you can sometimes watch a dozen live matches over the course of a weekend. The Five/Six Nations has long been available but you now have the Heineken Cup, Aviva Premiership, RaboDirect Pro12, French Top 14, Super Rugby, Rugby Championship and HSBC Sevens World Series. But how much viewing is healthy for rugby-playing youngsters? Do they benefit from watching the pros or should they be getting outside and learning for themselves? What do you think?

Planet Rugby Team of the Year. Wat is u mening oor die span?? Hulle gee nog 'n verduideliking ook vir elke selection. Planet Rugby's Team of the Year 15 Leigh Halfpenny (British and Irish Lions/Wales/Cardiff Blues) - It was a two-horse race for our opening spot as Halfpenny faced off with Australia full-back Israel Folau. Folau was outstanding in his debut season in rugby union, both for the Waratahs and Wallabies, but the performances of Halfpenny for region, country and the Lions saw him edge the jersey. Man of the Series, Player of the Six Nations. Outstanding. 14 Ben Smith (New Zealand/Highlanders) - He has always been an outstanding player for Otago and the Highlanders but largely on the cusp of nailing down a place in the All Blacks side because of injuries and other players' form. This year Cory Jane's absence led to Smith finally being on the right side of some luck and boy did he take his shot. Eight tries in the Rugby Championship and excellent Super Rugby form make him an easy pick. 13 Jonathan ...
Lions XV British and Irish Lions head coach Warren Gatland will have been a busy man as the RBS Six Nations reached the midway point. While one eye will have undoubtedly been on the on-going action in the Super Rugby, Gatland's priority will have been on the performances of the home unions. And as one or two individuals play themselves out of contention for the tour to Australia, a number continue to stake strong claims. And once again, skysports.com's Tony Curtis puts himself into Gatland's shoes and names his Lions XV. Remember the selections are based purely on this weekend's games... 15 Leigh Halfpenny (Wales) It is going to take something pretty special to... ~SportsMan
