Stuart Barnes has p**sed off football fans everywhere with one tweet

Stuart Barnes has felt the wraith of football fans after a ‘snide’ tweet about Wales international Gareth Bale.

Bale donated the sum to the official charity of the University Hospital of Wales – the hospital where he was born.

Barnes commented on the donation by saying: “That is a great gesture. But what does he earn compared to the average salary in the United Kingdom and how does that translate?”

The reaction wasn’t pretty.

Although it’s about a year until Warren Gatland picks his Lions squad, the public has already started talking about who will make it onto the plane and who will line-up in the first Test against South Africa.

Gatland has spoken publicly about his team but has given little away as he continues to ponder over big selection decisions.

That doesn’t stop the bookies offering odds on who will make the squad.

Here is how the XV would shape up based on the favourites to be selected from each position.
