I'll be in Cincinnati from Sunday-Sunday so I'll have to get my predictions for the next two matches by Saturday.

Will you be able to watch the Churchill Cup in Cinc? Important question - I can't wait for it.

Will you be able to watch the Churchill Cup in Cinc? Important question - I can't wait for it.

Oh the irony! The Churchill Cup is not on TV in Canada. The only way to watch it is to pay US $35 for both weekends and download the matches, which there's no way I'll be doing. I prefer downloading the Lions matches for free from torrentspy.com

I can watch Canada v. Argentina on July 2nd, if I'm back in time from the World Policeman and Fireman Games in Quebec City where I'll be refereeing the 7s rugby there.

I'm also set to be in Jasper, AB for a few days when I'm out in Calgary for July. Simon, as the expert traveller in the Canadian Rockies, any suggestions about stuff in Jasper in the summer? If you've not been, any general ideas on what to do in 3 days in the Rockies?

(Stay tuned for Lions Predictions for this week)

Good Game!

My trip to Cincinnati will be the death of me in this competition, but oh well. If I get a spare nanosecond I may "update" these predictions, but I'll do it in a new post so it doesn't look like I'm cheating- the Admins could probably tell anyways...

Lions v. Southland: Lions by 14
Lions v. All Blacks (1st Test): All Blacks by 8

I hope I'm wrong about the 2nd one. If I update later on this week, I suspect the winning margin may increase!

Good luck to all.
