    I sent an email into the BBC 6N forum about Jeremy's Lions XV, I don't suppose anyone knows if it got read out. I kind of worded it like most of the replies that get sent in to them in an effort to rub Jeremy's face in the fact he's a f***ing plum.

    There should be only two names on that team sheet: the entire pack should be named Jones, the entire backline Williams. Farking disgrace that the greatest team in the world has only nine :huh: players in there.

    Didn't he also say POC wasn't good enough to take on Matfield?

    Reckon Walsh aint to far from the mark, just I would have Byrne in at 15 before hand and possibly Wallace at 6! Oh and Flutey at 12!

    He did, also a bit in denial with Jones in over Heaslip, and the O'Driscoll comment is just comedy, loved the fact that Kenny Logan said he was worried about Jones writing in the Times now.

    It's Stephen Jones but obviously it's a typo.
