        Dunno why people think the Lions will cruise this tour, if they go down and try to play Fatlandball they'll be beaten, as evidenced this summer already.

            Fatlandball with better players should be able to scrap out a close series win I think.

            Don't forget the best of the other 3 Nations have a great record against Oz so should join the Welshies full of confidence.

            Oz still have some players to add to their team who missed the Welsh tests too so should be a close one.

            And predictions Cowboy?!

                With a handy HEC pool like Munster has (only one hard away game being played on a neutral ground), surely a home QF is in the bag?

                    Surely not! Paddypower aren't often wrong and it must be the first time in nearly a decade Munster aren't favourites to win their group

                      Yeah but they all have Quins, Sarries and Leicester at shorter odds so not a ringing endorsement

                            Rugby Championship: New Zealand
                            6 Nations: France
                            Lions Tour:
                            Heineken Cup: Clermont but Leinster if home semi. Clermont creeping closer every year but Leinster have the advantage of being a real club team playing together for some years now. Lot depends on fitness of BOD though. Still the main man/talisman.
                            Pro12: Ospreys- with most galacticos gone, will have most of their first XV for a lot of the season.
                            AIL Div1: Garryowen. Bit of a shocker losing Buckley to Cookies, who then registered him after due date for UBL! Let the committee politicing begin.
                            Premiership: Saracens.
                            Top14: Clermont
                            Super15: Stormers
                            B&I: Munster
                            Amlin: Perpignan, unless Declan Cusack turns into Carter and Guernica/Gornika win!
                            Italian title: Calvisano.

                              Hopefully those middling players won't be picked then! No room for the middling player on a Lions Tour ha ha!
