Jim Hamilton picks five Scots in his ‘shocking’ Lions XV

The latest episode of The Rugby Pod
 saw Jim Hamilton pick his Lions XV with five Scotsman including Hamish Watson and Stuart Hogg selected.

Fans were baffled by the 63-cap Scotland internationals decision to name out of form England fly-half Owen Farrell in his team and as captain.

There were also some doubts over his inclusion of FIVE Scots in his XV despite their impressive Six Nations.

  • 11. Duhan van de Merwe (Scotland)

HAMILTON SAID: I realised when I was putting these down that maybe I don’t know much about back play because I desperately wanted to put Keith Earls in because of how he has played but I didn’t. I went for Duhan van der Merwe and Liam Williams. At fullback, Hogg is an obvious pick.”
