Can't argue with Wales being deserving winners, England were absolutely awful and were completely outplayed. 

A bit of a meh 6 nations really, not helped by the weather at all.  Biggest plus I think has been Italy - deserving winners against Ireland and France (who they have in their World Cup group...), and should have beaten England as well.

And based on how I'm feeling this morning, here is my (current) Lions 15 - based o n6 nations performances, so excluding those who have been injured througout, e.g. Lydiate...
15 - Hogg
14 - Halfpenny
13 - Davies
12 - BOD
11 - North
10 - Sexton
9 - Would like it to be Laidlaw or Murray, but suspect that Phillips will get the nod

8 - Morgan
7 - Warburton (c)
6 - Brown
5 - Evans
4 - AWJ
3 - Jones
2 - Youngs
1 - Cole

Bench: Hibbard, Vunipola, Healey, Gray (if fit), Wood, Laidlaw/Murray, Burns (a bit left field I know, but want an impact 10 on the bench...), Brown
So 2/3 Irishman, 3 Englishmen, 2/3 Scots, 7 Welsh...

Centres a real problem position I think, as is 8.  Neither Felatau or Heaslip has stood out this year, and so have picked Morgan on the basis of his display against Scotland.

Discuss...!
