Sir Clive Woodward leaves Russell & Vunipola out of his 2021 Lions XV

LOCKS: Maro Itoje (England) & James Ryan (Ireland)

“For me they are the two best locks anywhere at the moment. World-class.”


BACK-ROW: Tom Curry (England), Sam Underhill (England), Taulupe Faletau (Wales)

“In the back row I would now start with Tom Curry and Sam Underhill either side of Taulupe Faletau at No.8. Billy Vunipola and Justin Tipuric would have big roles to play off the bench.”
