    Surname First Name Country Pros Cons
    MCGRATH Jack IRE Nominated by Paul Cully in SMH; consistent performer for Ireland; expected to be in Lions far from outstanding in the 6N
    VUNIPOLA Mako ENG Spotted in an on line World XV; good ball carrying and around the field; improved in scrimmaging not the best scrummager


  • McGrath. One o the most consistent performers for Ireland this year, and featuring in many people's line-ups for Lions starting XV next June.



  • Mako is worth a nomination for his ball carrying and work around the field but the nomination here is for Prop and a prop's first duty is scrummaging. Mako has improved in this respect but I don't think he strikes fear into too many THs.
