Weird World of Warrenball

With the British Lions having drawn thew series with New Zealand on Saturday, it seems fairly obvious that in the middle go Lions fever I would again be drawing Warren Gatland, him of the walking vacant wheeze.

It seems that Warren  has once again managed to annoy most people by adding Welsh quartet Kristian Dacey, Tomas Francis, Cory Hill and Gareth Davies after featuring in Wales’ 24-6 victory over Tonga in Auckland on Friday.

Scotland prop Allan Dell and fly-half Finn Russell were then added to the Lions squad following Scotland’s 24-19 defeat of Australia in Sydney on Saturday.

“Bringing in these players from an identical time zone, who can hit the ground running and step straight in rather than having to adjust following long-haul travel, will help us manage players before the first Test, give us quality training numbers to prepare properly, as well as offering us options for selection for the Chiefs match,” wheezed Gatland.

Meanwhile Eddie Jones’ England players who completed a series win over argentina never got a look in with Jones commenting “The Lions is a prestigious team – when you become a Lion, you’re remembered for life, my only comment would be, I would like to see it picked on merit rather than geographical proximity”!
