Great Britain and Ireland have named their squad for the 2003 �Think! Don�t Drink Drive� Ashes series this November. For the first time ever in the history of the Lions, an Irishman will take the field, with former Dublin Blues and Gaelic footballer, Brian Carney being selected in the side.
The team has a handful of surprises in it, none more so than Paul Wood (Warrington) and Gareth Ellis (Wakefield) which show that you don�t need to be in the big powerhouse clubs to make the Lions.
The squad is as follows:
Paul Anderson (Bradford Bulls) Brian Carney (Wigan Warriors) Gary Connolly (Leeds Rhinos) Paul Deacon (Bradford Bulls) Gareth Ellis (Wakefield Wildcats) Andrew Farrell (Wigan Warriors) Stuart Fielden (Bradford Bulls) Mike Forshaw (Bradford Bulls) Lee Gilmour (Bradford Bulls) David Hodgson (Wigan Warriors) Richard Horne (Hull FC) Ryan Hudson (Castleford Tigers) Sean Long (St Helens) Barrie McDermott (Leeds Rhinos) Adrian Morley (Sydney Roosters) Terry Newton (Wigan Warriors) Jamie Peacock (Bradford Bulls) Kris Radlinski (Wigan Warriors) Paul Sculthorpe (St Helens) Keith Senior (Leeds Rhinos) Kevin Sinfield (Leeds Rhinos) Paul Wood (Warrington Wolves)
