    Any England players making the Ireland team now!?

    Whole team was better, literally not one Ireland name goes in at the moment except for just one or two at a push here and there.
    We need to learn to be more respectful. Don't give them extra motivation, box far more clever. Teams have done that to us in the past (think ''Fat Phil'' Kearns ''they will have nothing to cheer about'' comment about the hordes of travelling Green at 2011 RWC).. Don't disrespect sides again that have won a World cup and AWAY tests against ALL big three SH teams.

            I was wrong..
            As far as I can find out (and it's not easy) no 'individual' country has won a series in SA apart from NZ (just once as well, 1996 2-1 to NZ).
            That's a pretty amazing record.. Of course the Lions have had a few series wins there (four in fact) going back a very long time now..

              High altitude has a big role to play in that record, as was the case when we went down there last time. Well on our way to a series win and then the lungs went. It’s a massive advantage.

                Lions tours used to be very long indeed with masses of time to acclimatise, hence a good record there.
