Agree with most of your team Mark but if Farrell & Sexton were to get injured, who would be your back up goal kicker? I would probably have Leigh Halfpenny at 11, in his natural position

Well, I've got Hogg and Daly - neither of whom usually bothers with anything less than 50m - and Finn Russell on the bench. I can't think of many teams who have a third goalkicker in the starting XV in case the first two both get injured!

Blues tomorrow, (Shingler, Morgan & Anscombe), I presume Cian Healy, is one of the props on the bench and why was Rory Best not considered for hooker, he has had a good 6N despite the injury before Italy game, or is he an impact sub?

Mark, having caught most of the 1/4 finals this past weekend, agree with your selection of Sexton but would have Owen Farrell as back up. I know you haven't picked a captain but the question is would it have been Heaslip, he has been an excellent vice captain to Rory Best in the 6N and has regional experience.

I like Best, but was just really impressed with George whenever he came off the bench for England. Heaslip would certainly do a good job as captain - I can understand why Gatland has suggested that the tour skipper might not be guaranteed a starting place in the test team.

Having seen the Lions squad briefly, with some of your chosen XV in what do you think of the final41?

Well, five of my fifteen didn't get selected - although, to be fair, Garry Ringrose and Rob Evans were included to stimulate debate rather than because they were outstanding candidates. Shocked that Launchbury didn't make it, and I'd genuinely expected at least one of the Gray brother to get the call.

From a Wales point of view, Biggar, Jonathan Davies and Halfpenny are all lucky, but I probably agree with the majority of the squad overall.
