British and Irish Lions Rugby Tour to South Africa

Quick, quick...we must do this quickly!!

Quickly pick your 35 players ( the experts are saying the party will number about this) who you think, at this stage, just before the 6 Nations kicks off, will make the tour. We can each review the team at the conclusion of each round. Your final selection can be made in a period from 22 March up until the day before the final selection is made (Date to be confirmed). I'll organise a prize for the contributor who gets either all 35 players correct or the closest.

Don't forget to include your captain. You can also vary the number of players for each position. It's up to you

So to get you going, here are my 35 players selected prior to 6 Nations Round 1.

Lee Byrne (Wales)
Geordan Murphy (Ireland)
