Lions Team Announced - TR Stats on the Money! 88 views 1 Comments
30 April 2013 by deep
 

The British & Irish Lions to tour Australia has been announced. As ever, a few surprises.

As expected, Sam Warburton has been named by Gatland to lead the crew down under.  (There was definitely no favouritism by his country coach Warren Gatland!).  The English captain couldn't even make the cut, nor could the old statesman Jonny Wilkinson.

The following makes reference to the season ranking for players in the 6 Nations 2013 series, based on their player groupings. It is a brief summary of/comment on information presented much better in the below images.

Sean Maitland (the kiwi) made it in off the back of a single season and a solitary try for Scotland, although he did score well in the TR points along with the others who made the squad. Halfpenny, Cuthbert and Hogg were the top 3 overall, followed by North and then Maitland (excluding a couple of Italians).

In the centres, O'Driscoll, Tuilagi and Davies came 3, 4 and 5 respectively.   Roberts comes in at 9.  Matt Scott is the unlucky top TR points scorer, but hard to argue with the quality selected.

At the halves we had Mike Phillips, Owen Farrell and Conor Murray at 1, 4 and 7 respectively.

Chris Robshaw, the English captain and second best scorer of the loosies has to be unlucky.  He can go join Rory Best for a few pints in the unlucky club. (read below)  Otherwise TR had O'Brien, Faletau, Heaslip and Tipuric at 4, 6, 7 and 8 respectively, and apart from Robshaw it was Italian and French players ahead.

In the locking department TR had Parling and Evans at 1 and 2, then Gray at 6 and Wyn Jones at 12.  I guess O'Connell has plenty of rep to cash in on.

Rory Best, easily the best TESTRUGBY.com points scoring hooker in the 2013 Six Nations series gets to stay home and catch up with a few pints of Guinness.  Meantime TR had Hibbard, Youngs and Healy at 3, 4 and 7, then Vunipola, Jones, Cole and Hartley at 11, 13, 15, 17 respectively.

There is a truck load of talent in this side, so it's great to see the Ozzies doing well in the Super series at the moment as it sets the scene for this tour to leave behind yet another legacy of unforgettable memories.
