‘Didn’t go well’ – The Lions XV predicted by experts back in 2017

Over the past few days we came across Wales Online’s bold Lions XV that they predicted FOUR years ago…

It seems that back in 2017, they tried to bravely predict the starting team for their 2021 tour of South Africa – so now it’s time to revisit their picks and look at how clever they actually were.

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

So how did they actually do? You be the judge


  • 15. Anthony Watson (England)
  • 14. Adam Bryne (Ireland)
  • 11. Keelan Giles (Wales)


  • 13. Jonathan Davies (Wales)
  • 12. Henry Slade (England)
