Iconic Lions midfielder Brian O’Driscoll, who skippered the tourists in 2005 and went on four tours, has chosen his preferred Test team backline for the 2021 tour to South Africa.
Full Back: Stuart Hogg
“I’m going to go with Hogg instead of Liam Williams at full-back, you are not losing a lot either way.
Right Wing: Anthony Watson
“I’m going with Anthony Watson on the [right] wing,” ODriscoll said decisively.
Left-Wing: Jonny May
“On the left-wing Johnny May. It’s probably become a bit cliched, the most improved player in world rugby, he’s been that for a couple of years. I’ve been incredibly impressed with him.”
