Former England captain Dylan Hartley has picked two England internationals in his British and Irish Lions front-row to take on South Africa this summer.
Now retired, Hartley is tipping away in rugby punditry and is the latest brave soul to step up and name his Lions XV.
Hartley never made a British & Irish tour, although he was selected for the 2013 squad until some verbal abuse of Wayne Barnes saw him receive a lengthy ban.
On The Offload podcast, Hartley named his starting XV for the Lions Test Series and went against the current grain by selecting six English players.
