Sam Warburton names his revised back-row to dominate the Springboks

BACK-ROW:

  • 6. Tom Curry (England)
  • 7. Hamish Watson (Scotland) Was Sam Underhill
  • 8. Taulupe Faletau (Wales)

WARBURTON SAID: “I think Toby right now is the number one front-runner for the number 8. Toby’s in the same breath as the Kieran Reid, Sergio Parisse, those three for me ar the best number 8s in world rugby in the past decade.”

“If I were picking a back row now it would probably be Curry, Watson and Faletau, but we all know that form is everything on a Lions tour.”

DID YOU KNOW? Curry is the twin brother of Sale Sharks flanker Ben Curry, son of Bishop Heber High School Head Teacher David Curry and nephew of former England hooker John Olver and cousin of former Northampton Saints and current Ealing Trailfinders fly-half Sam Olver
