Stuart Barnes and Dewi Morris both picked their hypothetical Lions teams (if the match was played now not in 2009) on the Rugby Club this week, with a small Scottish contingent. Barnes picked Hines at 4 and Rory Lamont at 14, with Blair and Hogg on the bench, while Morris went for Blair and Hines on the bench and no-one in his starting XV. Myself, it would probably go something like this, fitness allowing:
Bench: Stevens, Bennett, O’Connell/Gough/Wyn Jones (take your pick!), Haskell or Hogg, Phillips, Hook, Tait
Also, congrats to all the guys who whooped me in Six Nations Fantasy Rugby, shows what I know eh? Big shout out to Pedro who finished 3rd in the mini league.
