Now, before the BOD fan club attack this thread with 'OF COURZ HE IZ DA BEST CENTUR IN DA WURLD EVUR, 4RLZ!' I'm not saying he shouldn't be in the fold, but would you pick him in the big crunch matches, or do you think he deserves to. I don't think so, and my reasoning is this; He's a liability for injury, I don't think I can remember seeing him finish an Ireland game, and I've seen him go off injured more times than I can count since the world cup. Secondly, It's been said pretty much consistently that the Lions have to have a set game plan going in to the 3 games with South Africa if they even have a chance of winning. I can only speculate that McGeechan will select his team pragmatically, to say the least. I can therefor guess he won't want to take risks, like players who haven't been at the top of there game and are prone to injury, two attributes Brian O'Driscoll has shown since the world cup. However, it's still a year until it get's taken anything close to serious, so he might still shock us...as doubtful as that is. I also obviously don't back him as a perspective captain, Mike Blair and Ryan Jones to share it is what I would guess/want.
