Stephen Jones has strange choice for player of the series

The Sunday Times rugby writer Stephen Jones is known for his outlandish calls and he’s delivered again with his choice for player of the  Lions series.

“Well, Tadhg Furlong has been incredible.”


“For an hour, he has been everything you expect your tighthead prop to be. He’s not quite got the experience to last all the time, but he has been fantastic. He is very easy to pencil in as the tighthead prop in four years time.

“But I’m going to go for Courtney Lawes.

“He has played in some poor teams but has been good in those poor teams. And I really like the bloke. I don’t know him, but I like him as a player. He’s been a hard-hitter, and to see him come on and have bit of a shake-it-up in the second Test was great.
