British & Irish Lions Rugby starts this weekend

I know quite a few people on here love their rugby so here is a link to the 22 man squad announced today for the first game of the British & Irish Lions Tour to South Africa which kicks off in Rustenburg on Saturday against the Royal XV at 1400h GMT:

http://tinyurl.com/pr453k - WFS - goes to Rugby World Magazine.

The Lions have picked a big physical pack but there are some young inexperienced guys like Keith Earls in there so will be interesting to see if he gets targeted for some abuse!

I think the Lions have a good chance in the Tests against the World Champions if they don't get too badly beaten up in the provinces and can keep their best players fit!

Should be a great tour!

I'm hoping O'Driscoll makes it out of his first tackle this time around.

I entered it in, and there are no results within 100 miles. Crap.
