Team selection

Team selection was a bit nerve wrecking on Wednesday evening. There are always going to be people disappointed, but it’s a long tour and lots of opportunity to come. I’m delighted to be part of the first test, although like all players, I would rather be starting, but it will be a great honour for me and I’ll hopefully feature at some stage during the game.

The hype is great, with more and more lions fans arriving and the media starting to talk up the South Africans. We have done our Prep work and are confident in our ability although expect a real dog fight because I reckon it will be one of the most intense, physical games of the season…. Enjoy the game!
