“Speed demons” – Will Greenwood’s 2025 Lions XV is very different

England legend Will Greenwood has picked his ‘exciting’ team for the next British & Irish Lions tour in four years time.

The three-time tourist has tried his hand at picking a matchday 23 for the first Test against Australia in 2025 in the Telegraph.

A near-impossible task at the best of times, but there are certainly seven Englishmen who will be hoping that Greenwood’s power of prediction are perfect.

Tom Curry, Adam Radwan, Maro Itoje and more all feature in his side, with Lions assistant coach Gregor Townsend tipped to step up and replace Warren Gatland.

Check out his full selection below:
