One hour to go...


Just over an hour until the British & Irish Lions squad is announced and the excitement is reaching unbearable levels in my flat... where I'm all alone and scouring the web for titbits of info.

Here's some of the rumours going around:

  • Shane Williams, Wales leading try scorer and IRB World Player of the Year misses out on the squad because of his poor form for the Ospreys and Wales this year.

  • Shane Williams, Wales leading try scorer makes the squad because of his talent and the ability to waltz past huge South Africans.

Okay, those two are somewhat contradictory but here's some that are not:

  • The squad will be expanded to 37 players.

  • Josh Lewsey, England World Cup winner, will be a shock inclusion (Wasps connection no doubt helping there).

  • There is no place for Danny Cipriani or Jonny Wilkinson.

  • Gavin Henson might be selected on the basis that we have a distinct lack of flair players playmaker positions.

  • Ryan Jones scrapes in as number 37.

  • Or Andy Powell makes it instead...
Roll on 1.30pm!
