Jiffy leaves Brian O’Driscoll out of his all-time Lions backline

HALFBACKS:

  • 10. Barry John (Wales) – “Who is it to be, Phil or Barry? Roy of the Rovers or The King? My heart says Phil. My head says Barry. And, ultimately, it is with my head that I have to pick this team. For what he achieved in New Zealand in 1971, Barry John will wear the No 10 shirt.”
  • 9. Gareth Edwards (Wales) – “If you put on the field the 15 best players to have played in the distinctive Lions red, the No 9 shirt would automatically be handed to Gareth Owen Edwards.”
