Riki Flutey is un-doubtably a class player, and a superb 12 who does have a decent shot at touring with the Lions in the summer. But it just makes me wonder whether he should be going or not, considering he's not actually English. I mean I guess there's not much of an arguement when it comes to him playing for england, because that's teh RFU's decision and no-one elses, but there's 3 other unions and sets of fans involved who may feel hard done by that a New Zealand born 'Englishman' is being picked ahead of their centres. I might be looking a bit too far into this, because for all I know they won't care because it's less likely that their star centre doesn't pick up an injury if Flutey is picked. My personal opinion is that he is a very good player, and would be useful for the Lions, but it wouldn't make much sense to me if he playes for them, when he played against them for Wellington in the 2005 tour. Can't say any other player has been in a position to play for the Lions after playing against them, so this situation is a bit unique. What's everyone else's opinion?
