    But yeah, as something unique, the Lions at a capacity MCG would be something worthwhile. But can the Wallabies actually play them? Isn't Super Rugby on?

    The other thing I was thinking of though, is wouldn't the NZRU complain about Australia trying to hijack the tour? They'll probably try to say we did the same thing to them with the 2003 world cup, or something like that? I'm concerned about having more cracks appear in SANZAR.
    Kiwis would love the Aussies to have a game prior the lions hitting NZ as it would soften the team and make it easier for them to Win

    You'd think so. That's what I thought too, until I started reading some comments on NZ websites. I think I need to stop doing that!

    Would that be The British, Irish and Scotish Lions by then?

    Don't worry, there won't be too many Scots in the side to have to worry about it.
