Check out this poem sent in to us by an anonymous Lions fan…
Twas the night before Lions selection, when all through the eve,
Only Gatland was sleeping, with some tricks up his sleeve
BOD, POC and Sam all sat in their chair,
With dreams of captaincy, flowing through their hair
Farrell weeped, and cried in his kitchen,
Hoping Wilkinson didnt take his position.
Beside his name, Robshaw hopes theres a tick,
Along with Madigan, Hogg and Tipuric
Wade could run faster than the plane,
Causing Gatty more of a selection pain
And then there’s Heaslip, consistency’s the word,
Folk saying he’s not going; don’t be absurd
Halfpenny’s kicked himself there,
While Youngs has proved better than Care
Tuilagi could bosh a rhino out of his way,
The same could be said for O’Brien on any day
Healy and Best will be partners in crime,
Unfortunate to say, its past ROG’s time
Jones and Coles will battle for three,
And Neil Jenkins will marshal the tee
Ryan and O’Mahony could also be in with a chance,
Only if they can pick a fight at first glance
Despite all the drama, the choices and speculation,
It’s without a doubt, we’ll silence the Aussie nation.
What do you think? Made us weep a little… Don’t forget the Lions Squad Announcement is LIVE on Sky Sports News tomorrow at 11am.
