Good morning from Whangarei! It has been chucking it down for the last 24 hours here and the forecast is much the same for rest of day. I'm on tour with Howard McKenzie and 30 others with Rugby Travel Ireland. Craic has been superb so far and the locals have been very welcoming.

Very kind to Laidlaw calling him solid.

A wee reminder of the Global Law Trials that the Lions' games (and Scotland's tour matches and the u20s Championship) are being played under and which will come into force for all other Northern Hemisphere matches from 1 August 2017:

The last one is the one players need to have hammered into them, that'll cause a few arguments.
Don't mention Rory Hutton. I did once but I think I got away with it.

Waking up to the rotten news that Hoggy's Lions Tour is over. The squad has lost a true strike runner and threat in broken play that the All Blacks would have been concerned about. It's certainly a position of strength for the squad but with a Howley coached attack, the loss of X-Factor cannot be underestimated. Watching the Welsh backing off him at Murrayfield this year was a joy.

Wishing a quick and full recovery. You'll get a crack at them in the Autumn Hoggy.

It might all be mind games but if Gatland is planning to split his squad there are certain positions he needs to cover and there are 2 national squads nearby. I've taken a quick run through the main contenders from Scotland and Wales:

4 Welsh non entities. Looking at the form and injuries this morning the idiot Gatland would do well to take Barclay and Straus and put penalty machine Haskell on a plane to Heathrow. Rumour is Dell and Russell have been called up. Finn has shown he can open up defences, definitely has that something different. Garland should stay at home.

The Lions selection process is a bit of a joke under Gatland but I'm still pleased for Alan Dell. Given that he's Edinburgh's 3rd best LH he's doing well enough playing regularly for Scotland and now he has a Lions call up. He seems a decent bloke as well so fair play to him.

Aye, congrats to Allan. Joins a rather select group of Edinburgh players called up to the Lions.
