“A rookie can make a big impact” – Jason Robinson names his ‘all out attack’ Lions back-three

Writing for the Daily Express, Jason Robinson has included seven English players in his British and Irish Lions starting 15 to face South Africa in the first test this summer.


  • 15. Stuart Hogg (Scotland)
  • 14. Anthony Watson (England)
  • 11. Louis Rees-Zammit (Wales)

Robinson said: “I’d want Louis Rees-Zammit on the wing. He has the pace to go the distance on the hard grounds of South Africa. He has only played a handful of Wales Tests but a rookie can make a big impact on a Lions tour. I guess I should know.”


  • 13. Robbie Henshaw (Ireland)
  • 12. Manu Tuilagi (England)

Robinson wrote: “Manu Tuilagi has been out of sight since November but he definitely should not be out of Warren Gatland’s mind when he names his Lions squad.”
