Jamie Roberts the latest legend to select his Lions XV

HALFBACKS:

10 Dan Biggar (Wales), Conor Murray (Ireland)

ROBERTS SAID: “With the way the Lions will want to play against the Boks, Murray is in pole position for scrum-half. I don’t think Warren will want to play a high tempo; he’ll want to go toe to toe at the set-piece and get it spot on tactically with a kicking game. At 10, Biggar is in great form at the minute and is very smart tactically.”

FRONT-ROW:

Wyn Jones (Wales), Ken Owens (Wales), Tadhg Furlong (Ireland)

ROBERTS SAID: “Alongside Owens in the front row, Wyn Jones has been highly impressive. Mako Vunipola is the old stager along with Cian Healy, but Jones is the young guy. I think all three will tour. On form, Jones is the most impressive loosehead and a Lion in waiting. Tighthead is Tadhg Furlong and Kyle Sinckler. Andrew Porter will probably tour as well if they take six props.”
