I a said 2 my old man lst nite Care wouldnt get in. Harlequins were brutal at the weekend so he didnt stand out at all. I dnt know what your talking about anyway Eddie your original shout was Stringer but he was hopeless 4 Munster then you backed out and changed 2 Blair. Rite Maf wots ure shout 4 centre??? Eddie u stay out of it ure obviously a lions expert :shock:

They should take darcy but I have a funny feeling they will take tindall, who to be fair is also a great player. Darcy for me though.

Tindall may suffer from not being involved with any teams that are still playing for something so he isn't really on the coaches radar at present.

Hook or even Henson could be an outside bet and I wonder if the would have consider Evans if he had not been injured on Sunday....

Remember Tindall has the royal connection although Darcy now looks to be back to his previous best so if picking the best player and established playing relationships he would seem to be the favourite. :)

Im going to say Armitage will go, although Darcey or possibly Hipkiss may get a call up.

We selected the 3 guys we thought would go, assuming that the munster guy who's been cited doesn't go.

I went for Blair, Darcy + Croft - thus 1 out of 3.

Initially you said Care for scrummy - I said Stringer, so we're both dobbers :P

I'm not staying out of it - but you can always just blank my posts :lol:

Armitage is a good shout as he showed up well at the week-end - could both brothers go when Quinlan gets his ban (Wednesday hearing?)

I think croft will go as he's more versatile than Stefon Armitage. But you're right he had a stunning game on Saturday.

Quinlan is banned for 12 weeks - missing the lions tour.

Favourites to replace him are Tom Croft and Ryan Jones, but Denis Leamy and Jason White are outside bets for his spot.

They'll announce replacements for Quinlan and Tom Shanklin tommorow (friday).

Darcy deserves his place was back to his best in his last few games.
