Podcast: British & Irish Lions Tour Special – Episode 1

Cammy, John, Craig and Jonny review the Lions opening game against Japan and assess the Scottish players contributions. We chat about whether Duhan’s critics were right to question his defensive positioning, what Connor Murray’s promotion to captaincy means for Ali Price and why the game isn’t always the most important thing on a day out at the rugby.

      Very interested to see how Russell & Farrell go together. Either perfect balance or ying and yang or one of them will crack because the other one is winding them up.

      Jones/front row need to do better in the scrum this week to give the backs a good platform.
      Farrell and Harris feels a bit unbalanced in the centre – feel like Russell and Farrell both being playmakers would work better with a more attacking player at 13 (not having a go at Harris, more the combinations). Presume Hogg will be coming into the line in attack a lot and need the wingers to be looking for work.

      Overall a reasonable team, but nowhere near the likely test team.

    Neil – I’ve responded privately by e-mail to your comment. I’ve removed your comment because I’m not sure it was “genuine” based on our previous interactions.

    prediction : 9 of the 15 starting the first test will be Welsh or English..there will be
    a max of 3 each for the Irish and Scottish.

    Very different look from last week with two big lads at centre. I wonder if Farrell will step in at first receiver sometimes.

    Looks like a possible test backrow though.

    Just seen the disastrous u20s result. Followed on from a couple of poor seasons at that level and Italy now coming on leaps and bounds.

    Is our senior team going to plunge back into the hole it was in from 2000-2015? It’s great to have an interest in the Lions but I really don’t want it to be a one-off.

    I enjoyed the Pod.

    I think it is a reach to think those who attend Scotland games aren’t attending Pro Games as they are at club games.

    I would hazard a guess a good 70% of those who attend Murrayfield don’t attend much Rugby at all out with Scotland games, the glitz of a Scotland game carries a lot more weight then trudging along to your local club or to see Zebre to most

    I genuinely don’t think much more can be done to make fans attend the Pro teams, they have basically given Edinburgh tickets away for the last 5 years.
