Wales and Lions legend Shane Williams has revealed the three players he’d bet on being in the British & Irish Lions XV for their first test against South Africa in 2021.
1. Josh Adams (Wales)
- Current age 25
- Major teams Cardiff Blues, Scarlets, Wales Under-20s, Worcester Warriors, Wales
- Position Fullback, Wing
- Caps/Tries/Points 24/14/70
- Height 6 ft 0 in
- Weight 211 lb
Williams said: “If Warren Gatland had to pick his British & Irish Lions Test team tomorrow then I reckon Josh would be in the starting XV. He is playing with confidence and he is making things happen around him.
The best wings are not just try scorers, but try makers. They do that by coming off their own wing, hunting for mismatches in midfield and creating space for others. That’s what Josh does so well.”
DID YOU KNOW? He started every game in the 2019 Six Nations Grand Slam campaign and scored tries in three successive games against Italy, England and Scotland.
