Just want to know what people's thoughts are on this. Does anyone think that the lions selection may have a detrimental impact to the rest of our players season with regards to performance? Foxy has recently come out and said his head is fully focussed on pro12 but we all know that's not the case, and of course it is natural.

He can rest up along with Ken. Liam should play as he's leaving. Centre is covered with Scott, Hadley and Steph Hughes.

Are you suggesting that Ken and Foxy should be rested until the end of the season when we can still win silverware?

TBH foxy isn't even our first choice centre on form.

Based on previous lions tours players want to play so that they keep themselves match fit. See BBC article today where Foxy is focused on getting the club to the top 4 play off and further.

We must play them, thats what l think.

I'm sure the opposition will be pretty happy if we rest our Lions.

Yes, he's on an upward form curve - Scott has been very quiet recently. I'd start Parkes and Foxy v Connacht.

As for the Lions, I doubt selection will have any bearing on how well our three perform until the end of the Scarlets' season. I expect them to give 100%, and believe they will.


I share no-one's ideas. I have my own.

Err if we get into the play-offs we are two games away from silverware.
