Everybody’s doing it…

…making predictions about the composition of Warren Gatland’s Lions squad (announced tomorrow), that is.

I’m not sure I can be arsed. What seems certain is that Wales will be over-represented. It was always going to be the case, given the agenda of who is in charge, but the Welsh victory over England at Cardiff last month sealed the deal, I’m sure, for many Welsh players who had been bloody awful last autumn and not much better in the early stages of this year’s Six Nations.

Likewise England are likely to be under-represented, forgetting the fact that they’ve only lost one match in each of the last 3 Six Nations tournaments, beat the All Blacks comprehensively in November and have beaten Australia on Australian soil in living memory (as, indeed, have Scotland who are also likely to be under-represented).
Successful Lions tours tend to feature balanced squads. I won't be holding my breath.
