    And why would it not be held at the Waratahs Rugby HQ? They will still make up most of the squad, even their bench and EPS guys will get a gig... its pitiful.

    Australian Rugby would be a in a far better place if they could force the other nations to select a few Waratahs

    Okay - I did mean to refer to the Australian team when Deans announces the Qantas Wallabies reaction. However if there was a way I am sure a few Tahs would slip into the Lions selection somehow.

    To add some spice to the show, I hope Wilkinson & O'Driscoll are coming.

    Looking forward to the tour. Seems an age since I went to the game at the WACA in 2001. Refresher on tour results attached.

    I can't wait to see the squad announcement it will have a heavy welsh flavour and rightly so they were immense in the 6 nations

    Word is O'Driscoll should be in, but Wilko won't be due to his club commitments with Toulon. European final is due the same day as the Lions play the Ba Ba's in Hong Kong. Apparently Gatland doesn't want any one travelling who can't be there from the get go, i.e. - 2 weeks of camp before they leave.

    Fair call I guess. Shame really, looks like they will pick Sexton & Farrell. Heaped in irony as Wilkinson & Farrell palyed against each other on Sunday. Wilkinson schooled the young fella.

    It's actually the French final - the European final is 2 weeks beforehand...

    Yeah he was sharp against Saracens. I think even that he has commitments for the warm up game, Gatland should still take him. He's a points machine and exactly what a team needs to close out a tight game, his drop goals are lethal. I can't imagine him starting, but he can still do a job for the Lions.

    Spot on Zed.

    He's caused Australia a lot of pain over they years. But I'd still love to see hime here. Even Gits' was gushing over him in an interview yesterday.

    You can't buy class & experience & he has bucket loads more than the 10's who will probably get picked.

    He could teach some of our boys the art of tackling - he's hard as.

    ---------- Post added at 17:58 ---------- Previous post was at 17:53 ----------

    An hour to go before we find out who will be in the Lions squad and former Australia international Michael Lynagh discusses Jonny Wilkinson in his column for The Times. "I think he won't be going but does he merit a place? yes he does.

    "On the evidence of the past two Heineken Cup games he is still one of the best fly halves around - even more so when a team play to a style that suits him or is based around him."

    Live announcement shortly on http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/0/22348836
