Back in 2017, Wales Online predicted the 2021 Lions XV – it didn’t go well

Four years in rugby is an incredibly long time...

Back in 2017, Wales Online gazed into their crystal ball and lodged their prediction as to which promising youngsters would go on to make up the future Lions team.

They had a stab at providing what they thought would be Lions starting XV for their tour of South Africa in 2021 – which is now only a matter of months away.

Sadly, their attempt did not go too well, with only a few of their players currently being tipped for selection.

So how did they do? You be the judge

15. Anthony Watson (England)

14. Adam Byrne (Ireland)

13. Jonathan Davies (Wales)

12. Henry Slade (England)

11. Keelan Giles (Wales)
