Paul O'Connell Lions Captain

So it appears Paul O'Connell is to be captain of the British and Irish Lions for the tour of South Africa. I hoped he would be captain but I waited until someone other than the Irish media reported it. It makes sense to pick O'Connell ahead of O'Driscoll, after all if someone spears tackles O'Connell the planet will end up with a dislocated shoulder.

Hi dec,

I completely agree,o'connell is a man mountain and really plays his rugby with a big heart as much as his big frame,the rest of the players can't help but be inspired by the big man.
Brilliant to see so many irish players in the actuall panel itself,there's as many from munster as there is from england!!!!
