Rugby News: The Welsh tradition of picking medics in their rugby team will continue on Friday when the 19-year-old Hallam Amos follows the likes of JPR Williams and, more recently, Jamie Roberts by making his debut against Tonga. Amos is studying at Roberts' old hospital in Cardiff and can play at centre as well as full-back. But he gets his first cap on the wing alongside two of Warren Gatland's Lions from the summer in a team showing 11 changes and more than a whiff of experimentation after Saturday's victory over Argentina. Only Leigh Halfpenny and George North – Amos's back-three partners – the prop Rhodri Jones and flanker Justin Tipuric survive from that starting XV. James Hook gets his first start in two years – and in his favourite position of fly-half – with Ashley Beck and Owen Williams filling the holes left at centre by injury, and Luke Charteris is named at lock for the first time since his right knee was reconstructed. Charteris, one of the standouts in Wales' successful 2011 World C ...
Got to love The Tines . Taking the lead after less than three minutes was just what Warren Gatland, the Wales coach, had wanted, but once Jean de Villiers’ side got used to the pace and physicality of the game they were up and running. The early penalty exchanges between Halfpenny and Morne Steyn put Wales 6-3 ahead after seven minutes, but it was pace and power that seized the initiative for the southern hemisphere side. The pace was provided by the familiar figure of Bryan Habana, who scooted round Richard Hibbard in the midfield before showing George North a clean pair of heels and racing deep into Welsh territory. He found Bismarck du Plessis, the hooker, who knocked Liam Williams into the middle of next week before off-loading to de Villiers, who crossed with two men on his back.

Well I wonder if Warren Gatland picks George North in place of Jamie Roberts, Halfpenny on the wing and Leigh Burne at full back, have Scot Williams and James Hook on the bench to break the game up???
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 ...
Please try to answer the following multiple choice question correctly. You may select more than one answer:- After their stunning 41-16 victory over Australia today (and completing a 2-1 series win in the process), what will the 2013 British and Irish Lions now be known as? A: Heroes B: Legends C: Icons D: ALL OF THE ABOVE What a second half exhibition of rugby that was!! Warren Gatland, my sincere apologies for doubting your decision to drop Brian O'Driscoll. As for the try scorers, Alex Corbisiero, Jonathan Sexton, George North, Jamie Roberts: I love you all. Finally, Leigh Halfpenny: You are a goalkicking points machine. Your man-of-the series award is well deserved. Thank you guys for an unforgettable series. Now all i can say is: Roll on the Ashes!!!
Outcry over O’Driscoll omission masks other selection issues Posted on Jul 3, 2013 | 26 comments Warren Gatland has made quite a statement in dropping the one player people thought would be undroppable after injuries to the other two on-field leaders, Sam Warburton and Paul O’Connell. In leaving out Brian O’Driscoll he has lost the only other player who had a wealth of captaincy experience at international level, and as good a player as Alun-Wyn Jones is, he simply cannot point to this level of experience. The other slightly surprising side of this decision is that he has not been playing badly. Granted, he hasn’t been the attacking force that he once was, but then which of the backs – other than George North – has really sparkled with ball in hand? Jonathan Davies had a great game against the Waratahs but has been fairly pedestrian other than that – especially last week in the second test. Jamie Roberts’ selection is hugely based on reputation, given that he hasn’t had a good game since ...

Sam Waburton will captain the side in the No.7 jersey and he is joined by full-back Leigh Halfpenny, wings Alex Cuthbert and George North, centre Jonathan Davies, scrum-half Mike Phillips, second row Alun Wyn Jones and prop Adam Jones. The only surprise was the inclusion of Englishman Alex Corbisiero at loosehead, Mako Vunipola having been expected to get the nod butu having to make do with a place on the bench. That's the situation too for hooker Richard Hibbard, who has lost out to in-form Tom Youngs for the No.2 jersey. Hibbard and blindside Dan Lydiate are the Welshmen among the rep ...

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.

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 ...
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 ...
