“Selection is an art, not a science” – Woodward picks interesting Lions pack

BACK-ROW:

  • 6. Tadhg Beirne (Ireland)
  • 7. Tom Curry (England)
  • 8. Justin Tipuric (Wales)

Woodward said: “I’m not prepared to leave Tadhg Beirne out, but want Wyn Jones and Maro Itoje to form a second row partnership, so I’m playing the Irishman at blindside flanker. 

“Tom Curry starts at seven, and I’m going to take a risk and start Justin Tipuric at No 8.”

DID YOU KNOW? Tom Curry became the youngest player to start at flanker for England when he made his debut in 2017
