The 41-year-old said: "You could say he is picking on form, but he has picked an unbelievably direct team, with very little guile, specifically to play this game-plan.

"The Lions is about getting the best of quality out of the players of these islands, not having an intransigent game plan that is low on subtlety but simplistic from the start.


Keith Woods' wise words on the team selected, taken directly from the BBC website - it is very difficult to disagree with him

Series won in style, the Lion may have only purred for the first two tests, but they roared when it mattered, So much for the armchair critics, so called media pundits, and not forgeting the phalanx of ex players who spouted their opinions on selection tactic etc. Well done to both teams for a nail bitting series

Very true and also a big well done to Gatland for hooking Phillips and Hibberd just after half time - game changing replacements as the Aussies had all the momentum and after Murray came on we murdered them!

Great series win.. would have been a disaster if we had lost after the BOD situation.

Could potentially be a big weekend for British sport with also Andy Murray winning Wimbledon yesterday and The Ashes starting this Wednesday.
