LIST: 5 players who failed their final Lions audition in Dublin

British & Irish Lions boss Warren Gatland was present in Dublin as Ireland produced by far their best performance of the Andy Farrell era to beat a sorry England 32-18.

A number of stars will have impressed the head coach, however, these five might have just fluffed their lines in their final audition for the tour.

#5. Elliot Daly (England)

  • Position: Back-three

Where do you start? Shifted back to fullback due to an injury to Max Malins, his dismal performance began with a kick straight out of play before he was beaten in the air in the build-up to Jack Conan’s try. The 28-year-old is clearly low on confidence and his chances of making Gatland’s squad are now basically zero.
