Webb has run Murray close to start at 9 imvho. Owens the same with George at Hooker.

Toby will start at 8.

Really hope JJ starts at 13 (but he won't).

AWJ should be no where near the starting 15 but he will be.

Only the hooker and replacement tighthead out in the forwards Duncan. Backs more of a surprise.

Team: 15-Liam Williams, 14-Anthony Watson, 13-Jonathan Davies, 12-Owen Farrell, 11-Elliot Daly, 10-Jonathan Sexton, 9-Conor Murray, 8-Taulupe Faletau, 7-Sean O'Brien, 6-Sam Warburton(captain), 5-Alun Wyn Jones, 4-Maro Itoje, 3-Tadhg Furlong, 2-Jamie George, 1-Mako Vunipola.

Hmm. I suspect Gatland watched a different first test to the one I watched. AWJ looked off the pace from the start and that 10/12 combo did nothing but give NZ space to play. Frankly, I will be surprised by a loss of less than 20.

No problem with the 10-12 axis myself. I think they should have been pencilled in from the start of the tour. But AWJ? Slow and blowing it out of his @rse after 15 minutes last week - the luckiest player on tour - well along with Warburton...

Ahhhhhhhhh!!!

I have briefly written up my views here;

[rugbymarvel.wordpress.com]

Jones must have some seriously risque pictures of Gatland, otherwise how is he still holding onto his test place.

Rugby Marvel called the Sexton/Farrell axis, but lets see if it now works...

And that, I guess, is why I was overlooked when the Lions were appointing a Head Coach :-)
