Sir Clive Woodward names his matchday 23 to beat the Springboks

Sir Clive Woodward has named the full matchday 23 he’d start against South Africa if he was leading the Lions in 2021.

Here is who the World Cup-winning coach picked, including 12 England players.

However, a number of big names, including Finn Russell, Johnny Sexton and Jacob Stockdale all missed out on the World Cup-winning coaches selection.

Check out who made his matchday 23 by scrolling down:

BACK-THREE: Stuart Hogg (Scotland), Liam Williams (Wales), Anthony Watson (England)

“I’d start these three, but could have Jonny May and Josh Adams adding pace off the bench.”

CENTRES: Manu Tuilagi (England) & Jonathan Davies (Wales)

“Similar partnership to Te’o and Davies in 2017, but with even more power.”
