What? I'd be surprised. The French, English and the rest of the 6N would have to agree with that and I don't see the benefit to the NH. Who would vote for that?

Argentina will not be easy either.

We are all proud of Scarlets players making a Lions tour ( which makes them a banker for a full Summer schedule and a late season start the following term), but don't have the same admiration for players playing for their country (which means less games and back for a full pre-season.)

The Lions training camp started last year on May 14.

I don't agree with blatant profiteering (like the 4th AI and how it impacts on Europe for example), but I have no issue with a game that has no tangible impact (other than to put some money in the kitty of our loss making club of course).

Malcolm Marx has been ruled out of this match after suffering a hammy tear playing for the Lions.

Good time management.
Any offence taken on board is only a literate/cy consequence. Every attempt at humour is just that. No personal insult intended. Standards lowered for trolls.

Games are 2nd, 9th and 16th June. I would assume his wedding is later in the month.
