One thing I'm looking forward to is the ne GB Kit, very excited.

Yeah, me too. Looking forward to the whole setup for this historic tour. Who will be on the coaching staff, who is making the kit, who will sponsor the tour and the GB team, which tv companies are bidding for the tour etc.

All very exciting.

Do we actually think this tour will go ahead? I’m not convinced.

Do you mean in terms of us playing as Great Britain, or that we might not tour at all?

Surely we've got to go out there now that it's got to this stage? What are we going to do instead if we don't go?

Hummel will make the kit. That was announced when they got the England gig.

I don’t really do replica shirts but if it’s a good’un I may have to part with fifty notes.

I can't see anything in the announcement of Hummel and GB. 

The the only solid fact I have seen about GB is that Bennett will coach them.

That we might not tour at all. What stage have we got to? Have any stadiums been sorted out? It all seems too vague to me.

It's understood the Lions will play two tests against the Kiwis, as well as clashes with Tonga, Fiji and Samoa. The British side will also stop in Papua New Guinea on their way home.

The schedule means that Tonga, Samoa, Papua New Guinea and Fiji will be guaranteed at least two tests each in 2019, a vital boost for each of those countries especially with the recent progress of Tonga and Papua New Guinea.

Assuming the article is correct, it does make you wonder if the Fiji and Samoa games have been shoehorned back into the 'tour' because of the union world league mess.

Indeed. I've said it before, but even Lions naysayers could probably have been won round had this been announced 2 years in advance, with a great schedule that really worked for touring fans, with professional companies providing tour packages. 

As things stand, even those looking forward to this are now peed off and I really can't see more than a few handfuls being able to bother with this.

If there is an announcement due, get ready for disappointment. We'll be on 60 pages within an hour or two of it!!
