‘They will take the game to South Africa’ – Will Greenwood leaves Maro Itoje out of his Lions XV

Will Greenwood selected his Lions team for The Telegraph and has left out English forwards Mako Vunipola, Maro Itoje and Jamie George.

“Aggression, intensity and pace. This is a pack that will take the game to South Africa, spearheaded by the Irish all-rounders of Iain Henderson, Tadhg Beirne and Tadhg Furlong,” Greenwood wrote.

“Behind them, there is zip at half-back, mongrel in midfield and a back three that could go round, rather than through, the Springboks.”

BACK-THREE:

  • 15. Stuart Hogg (Scotland)
  • 14. Louis Rees-Zammit (Wales)
  • 11. Liam Williams (Wales)
Stuart Hogg

CENTRE:

13. Chris Harris (Scotland)
12. Robbie Henshaw (Ireland)
