Lions Selector Panel–4th Round (SCO)

It’s one of the hottest debate topics egg-chasing has to offer.

Given we live in something of a green goldfish bowl on these Irish shores, there’s no harm getting input from elsewhere. And so we have the HarpinOnRugby Lions Selector Panel, made up of one fan from each nation, with even the Irish panellist based abroad.

This week it’s the turn of our Scottish panellist Kirsten Bruce.  Click here to see how her latest choices affect the overall panel’s selection.


Well, there have been plenty of ups and downs in the autumn internationals. Everything from Scotland’s heartbreaking loss to Tonga to England’s magnificent win over New Zealand. Not a good autumn overall for the British sides.

So the Lions coaching team was named, and well…it’s interesting alright! I’m going to reserve my judgement. At least we know they will have the best Doctor – James Robson!

Sorry guys that the blog is not as long as it usually is. Christmas shopping and parties got the better of me! Hoping to see some good rugby this weekend in the Heineken Cup, and then loving the derby’s over the Christmas period.

Have a good Christmas and New Year!

I’m Kirsten. Some who read this may follow me on twitter (@kirstenbruce_02). I’m a big Scotland supporter, so apologies if I am a little bit biased. Also, big thanks to Jeff (@HarpinOnRugby) for allowing me to be involved – it’s sure to be challenging but a great experience!
