British & Irish Lions Tour Squad to Australia
The British and Irish Lions (A combination of the best rugby union players from England, Ireland, Wales and Scotland). This is a generally a huge occasion for Rugby fans - the Lions tour once every four years. 2013 sees them arriving in Australia.

The squad hasn't been picked yet, but here are my selections:

First stab at a Lions 35. Welsh dominated of course. I can't leave out Tipuric for Warburton, so Sam plays blindside in my starting XV. A lot of these guys are interchangeable with the 2nd XV. Lots of welsh players but not surprising considering they are double 6 nations champions. Captain would be from a shortlist of O'Driscoll, AW Jones and Warburton. Moved Jonathan Davies to inside centre.

15 Halfpenny (Wal)
14 Cuthbert (Wal)
13 O'Driscoll (Ire)
12 J Davies (Wal)
11 North (Wal)
10 Sexton (Ire)
9 Phillips (Wal)
8 Faletau (Wal)
7 Tipuric (Wal)
6 Warburton (Wal)
5 Launchbury (Eng)
4 AW Jones (Wal)
3 A Jones (Wal)
2 Best (Ire)
1 Healey (Ire)

15 Hogg (Sco)
14 Bowe (Ire)
13 Tuilagi (Eng)
12 Roberts (Wal)
11 Brown (Eng)
10 Farrell (Eng)
9 Youngs (Eng)
8 Heaslip (Ire)
7 Robshaw (Eng)
6 Wood (Eng)
5 O'Connell (Ire)
4 Parling (Eng)
3 Cole (Eng)
2 Hibbard (Wal)
1 Jenkins (Wal)

Laidlaw (Sco) Beattie (Sco) Gray (Sco), Kearney (Ire) Owens (Wal)
