    Default Isn't it strange........

    ....that what we've been waiting 4 years for is only 3 sleeps away.

    Most of us joined this site because we were Lions fanatics. And it's almost upon us. I wish I was out there, it must be quite something to be part of a Lions touring party (although I'd rather do one of the other 2 personally ;)).

    No matter who's picked I'll support them. No matter who drops the ball he needs to get back up again and keep going.

    On another note, I feel that this Summer, is the time when Australian sport is going to crumble a notch. The Lions and the Ashes - in 3 months. Now is the time to shut the Pom haters up and make them realise that we're not just a group of pasty white, warm beer drinking, sheep loving, haggis eating pansies. The Olympics showed we can compete at the highest level - against the odds. We can do it. Lets shove it up em.
    "Lets be clear about the 6m first and foremost. The 6m is not for player release. They use that in their statements, but if you look at our Participation Agreement signed in 2009, there is a split in there about what player release is. Out of the 6m, 2.7m is a core grant. Another 2.4m is to keep the non-Welsh qualified player quota down under an agreed limit. Player release is about less than 1.5m, so don't be misled by statements that say 6m is being paid for player release."

    It is the most special tour, a selection who will never play together again, a true one-off occasion. It must be sensational to be one of those selected. Fabulous and exciting. And so rare in rugby not to have the same old fixtures coming round once more. No second chances.

    Play up, boys. This is your Everest.

    There was a good interview by Shane Williams a few days back. He reckons the lads are just fizzing with the "arrogant" belief that they can pull this one off.
    The B&I nations can be picked off & smashed up one by one without a problem but the last tour showed the ruthless raw power the Lions can generate once they've found their rhythm which could potentially blow the Aussies to pieces. The problem last time is that they clicked a bit too late, a 4th test would have seen the Boks in tatters.

    The Lions need to win this one, it'll set up the next tour (the BIG one) just nicely & do wonders for the Lions brand.

    I've just put the match preview up and I thought I'd link to a video of where we left off four years ago. Stirring stuff...
