  2. Nicol backs Scottish duo for Lions places

    Rugby union

    We were in Lions overload yesterday for the quad announcement and former Scotland international Andy Nicol was a 5 live guest this morning to discuss the squad, which features only two players from north of the border.

    "Scotland haven't had a Test Lion since 2001 - Tom Smith. Stuart Hogg at the moment I think would be in the Test team if the game was on Saturday. I think most people would say that. He was outstanding in the Six Nations, player of the tournament. 

    "When it comes down to the final cut for the first XV there will be a Scot in it and Tommy Seymour could easily get on the wing as well. He's a proven try scorer, solid under the high ball defensively. The wing position, there's not a huge number of standout players, so Tommy could easily play himself into that."

  15. Chelsea start favourites - Poch

    Chelsea v Tottenham (Saturday, 17:15 BST)

    Is Mauricio Pochettino going in for the mind games ahead of Saturday's semi-final? The Tottenham suggests Chelsea might start favourites for the Wembley showdown, even though they have lost two of their last four league games, while Spurs have won their last eight matches.

    Spurs also beat Chelsea 2-0 in January but last won the FA Cup in 1991 and in the 16 years since Chelsea have won 17 major trophies.   

    "If there is one favourite it's more Chelsea because they are on the top of the table in the Premier League and (with) the experienced players they have, and the manager that they have," Pochettino insists.

    "I think it's a more experienced team than us. But we're in a good moment too, a hungry team. To challenge now this type of club, of team, is a very important thing for Tottenham."
