Sam Warburton names Farrell and Youngs in his Lions XV

CENTRES:

  • 13. Henry Slade (England)
  • 12. Johnny Williams (Wales)

WARBURTON SAID: “My bolter is Wales’s Johnny Williams at inside centre. He impressed me with his physicality and all-round game in the autumn and if he can build on that in the Six Nations then he has a real chance. Toby Flood recently told me how good he thought Williams was when they played together at Newcastle Falcons. His potential is huge.”
