Rugby Spread Betting: Warburton confident that British and Irish Lions squad will be ready

Sam Warburton and many rugby spread betting fans are confident that despite domestic finals getting in the way of their preparations, the British and Irish Lions squad will be ready for their 10-match summer tour.
Rugby betting UK services were concerned when they found out that players from Northampton, Leinster, Leicester, and Ulster, as well as Toulon prop Gethin Jenkins, were not able to join the 37-strong squad’s session due to their commitments to the club.
On Friday, Leinster lifted the Amlin Challenge Cup final, but rugby spread betting fans know that there is no time for celebrations as they now take on Ulster in Saturday’s final of the RaboDirect PRO12, as across at Twickenham, Leicester and Northampton battle for the Aviva Premiership title.
That basically means that there will only be a limited amount of time for those players to integrate with the rest of the team before leaving for Hong Kong prior to the warm-up game on June 1 with the Barbarians.
But tour captain Warburton believes that for the match, the Lions will be in good shape, and many rugby spread betting fans fully agree.
“Preparation won’t be an excuse as we will have had three weeks together before kick-off and the BaaBaas will have had less preparation time than us.”
As they met for their official get together in London, the remaining Lions players went on to take part in training sessions in Ireland and Wales. Warburton says that under head coach Warren Gatland there is a feel-good factor in the camp, and the club’s rugby spread betting fans seriously hope that this is the case.
“He is extremely optimistic as all Kiwis are and that’s what I am like myself and I think his confidence rubs off on the players,” added Warburton.
And rugby betting UK services know very well how important his optimism can prove to be for the squad.
“I think everyone is ready now. On the Monday when we had those meetings we were just looking forward to getting on the training pitch, getting the ball in the hands and getting prepared for that first game because this is what everyone dreams of going on a Lions tour.
Do you have players? We can handle them for you.
“The opportunity will pass you by if you don’t embrace it.”
