Today, the British Rugby Association announced the squad which will face South Africa later in the summer.
There was a number of surprises within the squad however.
Causing a number of eyebrows to be raised was the inclusion of both Barry and Paul Chuckle. Whilst it was acknowledged that the league form of the 2 Chuckle brothers has been excellent, the wider opinion was that they would not be chosen.
Furthermore, the inclusion of 2 actual lions, supplied by Colchester Zoo, has caused a number of people to question the sanity of the board.
Moving towards the tour, it is believed that the main focus of training sessions will be teaching Simba and Scar the art of the scrum.
