Nice idea. Think you won't be far off. I think those non-match fit players will be involved though, especially warburton. It's the easiest game on tour and chance to get some fitness in to him.

My guess:

15 - Hogg
14 - Watson
13 - Joseph
12 - Payne
11 - Seymour
10 - biggar
9 - laidlaw

1 - marler
2 - best
3 - sinckler
4 - wyn jones
5 - Henderson
6 - moriarty
7 - warburton (C)
8 - faletau

Bench:
16 - George
17 - McGrath
18 - Cole
19 - itoje
20 - Tipuric
21 - Webb
22 - Sexton
23 - Te'o

Duncan

Thank you for reply and and can see some sense in getting some game time into Warburtons legs, just as long as he does not break down in the 1st match of the tour.
My match skipper would be Wyn Jones.

The idea for the articles was that we have to post regular stories over the summer to keep the Sportsnet site alive and st least these predictions are rugby related and act as a little preview (sorry no where need the Chris C standard)

If anybody else wants to write an article please let me know as many of you will know more about Super 12 sides and the opposition, plus will ease the pressure on me trying to write these around my shifts.

Cheers

Simon

It's a good idea, let me know if you need some help, in terms of keeping the site up I think it's 1 per fortnight Tiggs needs so you could always predict two in a row or something!

Yes a least one per fortnight and Lions stuff is good.
Thanks.
