Sir Ian McGeechan picks his Lions XV based ‘on current form’

HALFBACKS:

  • 10. Finn Russell (Scotland) – You’ve got to go for him. I think South Africa would be worried if they saw a Lions team with Finn Russell in it.
  • 9. Ali Price (Scotland) – He’s a natural link with Russell and he’s got a good kicking game, but he’s also quick and will have a go at forwards on the front foot. 

FRONT-ROW:

  • 1. Wyn Jones (Wales) –  I think technically, scrummaging wise, he can be challenged a bit, but given the form of the current props, it was between him and Rory Sutherland.
  • 2. George Turner (Scotland) – He carried well at the weekend. he tackles well and his game involvement is very high. I’ve been very impressed with him.
  • 3. Kyle Sinckler (England) – He is good with ball in hand, so you’ve got all the bonus of a very good footballer in open play, but technically you’ve got a good tighthead as well.
