WORRYING LIONS NEWS

HAMISH WATSON (Scotland) HAS BEEN INJURED OUT!:-0

Poor Hamish Watson suffered a CONCUSSION during training and so has been ruled out of The British & Irish Lions Warm-Up game v Japan on Saturday :-(

Hamish played brilliantly during the Six Nations Championship earlier this year earning himself the "PLAYER of the CHAMPIONSHIP" title. He will be a loss to the Lions

But another class flanker will take his place ....

THE LIONS’ ROAR!
They’re gonna put us to the test :-0
We’ve really got to play our best
Not gonna play quietly
Not gonna play “politely”
We really haven’t got much choice
Must push ourselves to breaking point
We’ll stand for nothing :-|
We’ll try out everything :-D

They hold us down, but we get up (hey!)
Already brushing off the dust
They hear our voice, they hear that sound
Like Thunder, gonna shake their ground
They hold us down, but we get up
Get ready cos we’ve had enough
We see it all, we see it now .....

We’ve got the power of the fighter, the lion,
Racing to the Tryline
CAUSE WE ARE THE LIONS .....
.....AND YOU’RE GONNA HEAR US RRROOAARR
Louder, louder than 1 lion
CAUSE WE ARE THE LIONS AND YOU’RE GONNA HEAR US RRROOAARR!

Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
