Why the Lions will roar in Australia

I have a good feeling about the Lions tour this year. For the first time for a while, I truly think that we can turn over the wallabies in their own backyard by winning the test series 3-0. It may be early to come to these conclusions but these are the three main reasons why I think we have the best chance to claim a series whitewash in Australia.

The Coaching Staff have been instrumental and a revolution for the Lions team. Head Coach Warren Gatland has brought together a team of coaches who know how to win the biggest things the sport can throw at them.

Sam Warburton is a role model for young captains. He makes his presence known both on and off the field, although he may have missed the past few warm ups with an injury, he will only add to the strength of the team. He will feature in Saturdays warm up match against the Reds.

The form the team has shown in the two warm up matches against the Barbarians and Western Force have shown that we are here to do business, comfortable victories will frighten the Wallabies who could be seen in a transitional period can give them some cause for concern although the two opponents facing the Lions were weak.

The team should face their strongest test yet on Saturday as they take on the Reds in Brisbane, catch the action live on Sky Sports.
