    Charteris has flattered to deceive since winning his first cap as a replacement against South Africa in 2004 but has finally begun to string a run of consistent form together at the Dragons. His height means he is an excellent option at the lineout but he also produces some nice offloads and purposeful carries. There are doubts over whether he has the physicality for this level.

    Ian Evans, one of the most highly-rated players in Wales, was selected for the World Cup squad despite not having played for 10 months after undergoing a shoulder reconstruction. The athletic lock and lineout general was born in South Africa, where his parents were working, but returned to Wales when he was five. Evans was an unused replacement during the 2005 autumn series, but made a remarkable international debut in Argentina the following summer, galloping in for a try from 60 metres.

    DoB1980-11-17 BirthplaceCardiff (Wales) Height1.88 m (6' 2") Weight117 kg (18 st 5 lb) PositionProp

    The Cardiff prop has been at his very best this season with his high work-rate being supplemented by his destructive tackling ability. He is a purposeful ball carrier and has matured greatly following his one-off game as captain against South Africa in 2007. His Heineken Cup displays for Cardiff have been magnificent and he is right in the frame for a Lions place.

    DoB1981-03-08 BirthplaceMorriston (Wales) Height1.83 m (6' 0") Weight121 kg (19 st 0 lb) PositionProp

    Having won his 50th cap against South Africa in the autumn, the Abercrave product is firmly established as one of the best tightheads in European rugby. He is a solid scrummager and shows a good work-rate around the field. He has some deft touches not typical of front row play but he does the basics well and his ability to anchor the scrum is key to Warren Gatland's side.
