A countdown of the 5 worst lions players features two England players – but No 1 is beyond argument.
The list, compiled by Pundit Arena in 2017, features some players who were perhaps more unlucky than bad while others shouldn’t have been anywhere near the British & Irish Lions squad.
Scroll down to find out who mate their lost of the worst Lions players.
Pundit Arena’s WORST LIONS PLAYERS:
5 – Tyrone Howe
PA: “When Dan Luger pulled out with an injury a strange call-up was made by Graham Henry in 2001. A career blighted by injury, only managing 14 caps for Ireland he must count himself lucky to have represented the Lions.”
RUCK: The 30-year-old, who had only won six caps for Ireland at the time, was pencilled in on the Lions’ standby list following some impressive Heineken Cup displays for Ulster. Can’t really argue with what PA have said.
