Following the squad announcement, Ireland and Lions legend Brian O’Driscoll has picked his British & Irish Lions backline to dismantle the Springboks.
15. Stuart Hogg (Scotland)
O’Driscoll said: “Hopefully he’ll get the chance to play in a Lions test match, so hard done by with that facial injury caught from Conor Murray last time.
“He’s made for that fast ground and his overall game looks pretty outstanding.”
14. Anthony Watson (England)
The English winger and full-back makes it into O’Driscoll’s side.
