THIS MONTH LIONS CALL-UPS
Warren Gatland called up six players – four Welsh, two Scots – from nearby tours as bench cover against the Chiefs and Hurricanes. Not everybody was happy…
Rob sullivan Watched a few scots in the Wallabies game that deserve call- up before players gatland brought in. Choosing players on proximity is an absolute joke. Let’s just hope he’s not given the job again in 4 years’ time! gatland’s reasoning was very clear. he knew who he needed to win the series, so he just adjusted to suit tough conditions.
Carole Knox smacks of favouritism. I’m an england fan but I was annoyed more scottish players weren’t included considering their rise.
David stephens gareth Davies should have been there anyway. totally outplayed Conor Murray in the Pro12 final.
Nathan soesan so glad he called up well-known, solid players, selected on their ability, not because they were geographically close… oh wait!
steven Carter What’s wrong with people? they were called up to keep the Lions fresh for the tests and for the fact they were local – scotland were in australia and Wales in New Zealand.
