Brian O’Driscoll leaves Owen Farrell out of his Lions backline

Ireland legend Brian O’Driscoll says there is no room for Owen Farrell in his Lions backline, but does think the England captain will make the squad.

Revising his original selection when speaking to Off The Ball this week, England duo Farrell and Manu Tuilagi both drop out of his backline.

See who Brian O’Driscoll selected below:

DID YOU KNOW? Brian O’Driscoll was chosen as Player of the Tournament in the 2006, 2007 and 2009 Six Nations Championships.


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

BOD SAID: “You look at the calibre, you want X-factor and guys who can win games on their own I look at 15 and 14 immediately in Hogg and Watson. The other wing is a three-way shootout between May, Rees-Zammit and van der Merwe.”
