out of curio where would you play him 6 or 7? [/QUOTE

Starting 6 with Curry just about 7 infront of Tuperic 

I can't see the Lions playing a 6 who cannot compete with Pieter Steph at lineout time. Navidi is a wonderful player but he isn't Beirne/Henderson/Itoje or Lawes. That requirement meant Navidi would have really been considered as a 7 or 8.

Not many people can compete with Navidi in the tight he is so strong and does so much good work in mauls and on the ground he is a six. As for competing in line out you can throw up Tuperic, who is used by Wales and Ospreys a lot,  or Curry to compliment the a second rows. 
She asks why i still can't answer. I guess its in the blood.

I hear what you area saying Why but I am only trying to double guess Gatland's thinking. For me I would have Navidi before Simmonds but at 6 I would take Tadgh Beirne all day long.

Oooof! Curry before Tipuric???

Ospreys Orders will have a hissy fit when he reads that.

Sam Simmonds has scored 16 tries in the Premiership this season, the most in one season by any forward.

I'd love to see Beirne cement a starting spot. I can imagine him winning a turnover in the last minutes of a game to win it.

Now is the time for the Govt to act to manage a possible surge.



Unfortunately no direct action taken, and the inevitable case rises continue. Now up to 10k/day.

Quite a large Indian diaspora in SA too, so I imagine that variant is spreading there faster than their testing can keep up with.
