Ex-Wales wing Gerald Davies has been appointed manager for the 2009 British and Irish Lions tour to South Africa. I think if Geechs doesn't take it then it should be Warren Gatland , who's form speaks for itself. Brought Ireland up to where they are now, won 5 trophies in 3 seasons with London Wasps , took Waikato to the new look Air New Zealand Cup his first season in charge. Just a shame for Wales he doesn't start until after the game against the Boks! Anyone got any better ideas for the Lions coach? We'll leave the team for another time and another thread.
