A fortnight is a long time in rugby. Two weeks ago, all the Six Nations talk in Wales was about an Englishman, albeit one born in New Zealand: the hooker Dylan Hartley, who ended up supping in the "last laugh saloon" after helping the former world champions to a highly satisfying victory in Cardiff. Yesterday the Welsh had no option but to talk about their own kind. "We can't hide from the fact that we've lost an awful lot of games," admitted the assistant coach Neil Jenkins, "and we're not hiding from it."

Ian McGeechan said it was all over and everyone believed him, his wife included. He probably believed it himself. But that was in July of last year, when emotions surrounding the narrowest of British and Irish Lions defeats in South Africa were still raw. Now, 15 months on, the man who has come to define Lions rugby in the modern era is very much in the thoughts of those who must choose a head coach for the 2013 trek to Australia – a trip that will begin in ground-breaking fashion with a game against the Barbarians in Hong Kong.
