HINDSIGHT: The Lions team Warren Gatland should have picked against South Africa

Australia have scored four tries to beat South Africa 30-17 to record a second win over the world champions in a week.

It was a commanding performance that had all Lions fans asking the same thing…why didn’t Warren Gatland play more attacking rugby this summer?

Wales legend Jonathan ‘Jiffy’ Davies was among those to make the observation after the turgid summer series he admitted to switching off during the second Test.

The tourists narrowly won the first test before being well beaten in the two following clashes , meaning they lost the series 2-1.

So, with the benefit of hindsight, we look at how the Lions should have lined up for third and final test against the Springboks.
