As much as I don't agree with this controversial decision made by Warren Gatland that has made the headlines recently. There is still Tommy Bowe, Jonathan Sexton, Sean O'Brien and Conor Murray who are still representing Ireland in the Lions team tomorrow. Despite Brian O'Driscoll getting dropped, (Disgrace yes) It is important that we show the support to them guys tomorrow who will go into a fierce battle with the Australians in what will be the decider test. Over the few weeks the Lions have been a joy to watch in the warm-up games and the 2 tests and it would be a shame that all their support was to drift away because of one controversial decision to drop probably one of the greatest centre players ever to grace the pitch. For Brian O'Driscoll it was no doubt a tough pill to swallow but it definitely doesn't stop him from assisting his Lion team-mates giving the relevant advice on how to defeat the Australian team to clinch the series which I still feel that they can achieve with his knowledge and rugb ...

Lions Squad Analysis for 2nd Test Posted on Jun 27, 2013 The old adage goes that ‘you should never change a winning team’ but clearly this message has been lost on Warren Gatland, who has made five changes to his test XV ahead of the second test on Saturday. In the forwards, Mako Vunipola and Geoff Parling have replaced Alex Corbisiero and Paul O’Connell, both of whom are injured, and Tom Croft, who drops to the bench, has been replaced by Dan Lydiate. In the backs, Ben Youngs and the fit-again Tommy Bowe are preferred to Mike Phillips and Alex Cuthbert, with the winger dropping to the bench at the expense of Sean Maitland. Vunipola was unlucky to miss out on a starting role in the first test after his imperious form in the warm-up games, but ultimately the decision to opt for Corbisiero, a more proficient scrummager, proved to be the right call. The question now is whether or not Gatland should have selected Ryan Grant, who takes his place on the bench, ahead of Vunipola, with the latter resuming h ...
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 ...
Tommy Bowe having an op now and Warren Gatland wants to see how surgery goes before calling a rep – could be that he's fit in two weeks
Another Lion bows out of tour The British and Irish Lions have suffered yet another injury blow, with Irish winger Tommy Bowe set to undergo the knife on a broken hand. Bowe picked up the injury in the Lions' 22-12 victory over the Queensland Reds on Saturday night, and coach Warren Gatland said he would miss the remainder of the tour. "According to the medics he'll probably need an operation," he said. "I think you can deduce from this that he'll play no further part. I would say that's it as far as Tommy is concerned." Gatland was in no doubt as to the significance of the loss. "The experience he brings, and being able to play right wing, left wing, centre and full back, means he is a huge loss for us. He slotted in well on the left wing tonight. "If you think about the two guys we are bringing out in terms of replacements they are absolutely quality players. If Alex Corbisiero hadn't been injured then he would have been in the mix and Ryan Grant has had an excellent season as well." The latest setback ...
