Fifteen Welshmen in the squad, so that is the first team sorted out. (Ten English, nine Irish and three Scots will compete for places in the mid week side.)

I have just realised that the first Test match in Brisbane is on my birthday, June 22nd. The kick off is eleven o'clock in the morning British Standard Time. That could get a bit messy.
