Sir Ian McGeechan picks his six players to watch in 2021

5. Ollie Lawrence (England)

McGeechan’s view: “With Manu Tuilagi constantly injured and Jamie Roberts absent stage left, the Lions desperately need a forceful ball-carrier in midfield who can take the ball up and get over the gainline early. Ollie Lawrence is a fledgling in Test terms but he’s the player best suited to that role, although the excellent Rugby League-style lines run by Scotland’s Sam Johnson means he can also fulfil that role too, as he showed at Twickenham two years ago.”

Lions odds: 10/1
