Jim Telfer picks his pack to dominate the Springboks

When legendary Lions Jim Telfer selects his forward pack to take on the Springboks this summer – you listen.

Writing for The Offside Line, the 81-year-old has gone with two English players in his pack, with Maro Itoje and Tom Curry both included.


  • 1. Wyn Jones (Wales) – ” He does it all, scrummages strongly, carries and defends with aggression.”
  • 2. Ken Owens (Wales) – “Owens has been crucial to the Welsh revival in the Six Nations following that forgettable autumn series.”
  • 3. Tadhg Furlong (Ireland) – “He is a big beast of a man and you need to meet and match the Springboks for power in the forwards.”
