Appearing on Joe’s House of Rugby this week, British & Irish Lions legend Sam Warburton has selected the back-row he’d pick to take on the Springboks.
DID YOU KNOW? Sam Warburton joined a very exclusive club during the 2017 Tour to New Zealand, becoming only the second man to captain The British & Irish Lions twice
SAM WARBURTON: MY LIONS BACK-ROW
Blindside flanker: Sam Underhill (England)
- Age: 24
- Odds to make the squad: 6/5
WARBURTON SAID: “I know he didn’t play any of the Six Nations, but when he’s fit he punishes people. I think from a defensive point of view, him being missing is the major reason why England haven’t ticked in defence. He’s their one player that flies off the line and batters people from minute one to 80.”
DID YOU KNOW? He studied Politics and Economics at the University of Bath
