Sam Warburton selects ‘much-changed’ Lions XV for series finale


  • 10. Owen Farrell (England)
  • 9. Conor Murray (Ireland)

Warburton said: “On Sky Sports after the game the former Ireland and Lions fly half Ronan O’Gara was asked to name his back line for next weekend and he went with Conor Murray and Owen Farrell at half back, Bundee Aki and Robbie Henshaw in the centre, Adams and Anthony Watson on the wings and Williams at full back. I can’t disagree with any of that. Farrell’s defence and leadership at fly half will certainly be strongly considered”

  • 2. Luke Cowan-Dickie (England)
  • 3. Tadhg Furlong (Ireland)

Warburton said: “Up front I am not so sure that there will be changes. That forward pack did so well in the first Test, and do you lose faith with them now? Maybe “Gats” could use his bench a bit sooner.”
