Lawrence Dallaglio names his Lions back-row to dominate the Springboks

NUMBER 8: Taulupe Faletau (Wales)

Dallaglio feels that although Faletau is the ‘man in possession’ having started all three Tests against the All Blacks, the Wales No.8 is in for a battle royal with Billy Vunipola.

“Faletau even though he’s had a lack of minutes on the pitch, he’s a lightly run horse in terms of using that parlance,” he said.

“Vunipola obviously has got the pedigree to play there and if there were two or three big games between now and the Lions tour, I would like to see Billy stand up and be counted in those matches and come through as the number one choice.”
