    Well I for one am really looking forward to the All Blacks squad announcement.

    Anyone else want to talk about it?

    No?

    Well ok then.

    AB squad announcement is boring. Same players as last year plus maybe 1 or 2 new additions.

    Does it really matter? If the Lions squad is as rumoured and the game plan is completely locked into Warrenball with no room for deviation you could play your third string side and still sweep us.


    The only good thing I can see coming from this tour is for some stupid reason Gats comes out with enough credibility that NZ is stupid enough to name him NZ coach when Hansen retires. I'd **** myself laughing if that happened.

    I'll guess there will be between 7 & 10 injury replacements during the tour.

    Great tone setter with Biggar.

    No one saw Payne or Nowell recently.
