had my eye on Caleb Clarke for a while now. Was obvious he was going to be an All Black

Spoiled for choices across the back 3. Historically too - Christian Cullen the dream 15, John Kirwan (would make any all time team picks), the list is ridiculously good and metaphorically endless



Seen Louis Rees-Zammit? Not really filled out yet, but absolute gas.

All blacks lost to Argentia. They've been shaky in the Beauden Barrett era.

Had a dozen texts from my Mum last night, pretty turgid game. Quite spicy too for handbags. Wales were never in it.

NZ lost to the Oz too recently. They don’t look like your typical All Blacks right now. Needs a yeti or two in the pack and the back lines continues to stutter.

Or maybe the centre of power will shift to countries which haven't been emasculated by feminism and cultural Marxism, sorry, wrong meeting

It helped having a pack of yetis to win the ball for him. Everyone here was willing on the Boks.

Outstanding wee player though, like a terrier. Quick ball wins games. Fact.

Chabal by name, shire horse by nature.

Ironic really because no-8’s are the link between your scrum half and the pack. If your no8 is gash, your scrum half is in for a rough ride (see G Davies against Ireland last weekend).

Faletau has been Mr Consistent there for northern hemisphere rugby, got v unlucky with busted arms in succession (think his first game back after the initial break, gutted). Rolls Royce of a player, footwork like a dream and tested K Read for the Lions not so long ago. If your 8 has feet like Faletau, you don’t need a crash ball Chabal because your tight-5 should be clearing/smashing rucks and your back row jackals and recycles.

The line ups here are unreal

British & Irish Lions Liam Williams, Anthony Watson, Jonathan Davies, Owen Farrell, Elliot Daly, Jonathan Sexton, Conor Murray, Taulupe Faletau, Sean O’Brien, Sam Warburton (captain), Alun Wyn Jones, Maro Itoje, Tadhg Furlong, Jamie George, Mako Vunipola. Replacements Ken Owens, Jack McGrath, Kyle Sinckler, Courtney Lawes, CJ Stander, Rhys Webb, Ben Te’o, Jack Nowell.

New Zealand Jordie Barrett, Israel Dagg, Anton Lienert-Brown, Ngani Laumape, Julian Savea, Beauden Barrett, Aaron Smith, Kieran Read (captain), Sam Cane, Jerome Kaino, Sam Whitelock, Brodie Retallick, Owen Franks, Codie Taylor, Joe Moody. Replacements Nathan Harris, Wyatt Crockett, Charlie Faumuina, Scott Barrett, Ardie Savea, TJ Perenara, Aaron Cruden, Malakai Fekitoa.
