Watson?? 2 games back and 1st game he did well and the 2nd he couldn't catch a cold and that's all he needs to show to be in the Lions starting lineup

Consistently one of England's best performers during the 18 game run, (hopefully) will be back to full fitness by the summer and played himself back to his best - could though quite happily replace him with any of the other wingers I mentioned!

Warburton back as favourite to be named captain?

I think that warburton would be a terrible decision. Surely it's no coincidence that he's back to his best when he's been relieved of pressure of Welsh captaincy.

I'd have Watson as a starter if he's fit, and no thanks to Sam as captain.

No real surprise that ex welsh players are picking mostly Welsh players in their team. Hopefully Gatland and Howley can be objective.

With 90% of that Stuart.
Think the selectors need to pick on form not name,never mind the class cliche.
This will be a helluva iternary,after a long season against fresh opponents,so folks in top form n nick counts for me,not reputation or previous

As good as he is in attack, Hogg is poor in defence.
