“Too conservative” – Three changes Woodward would make to Gatland’s Lions XV

Sir Clive Woodward has branded Warren Gatland’s selection for third test as ‘too conservative’ and has revealed he would have have liked three further changes.

Gatland has made six changes to his starting team after the Lions’ heavy loss in the second test, with most of those coming in the back three and the front row.

However, former Lions coach Woodward revealed in his column for the Daily Mail that he’d have liked further alterations.

#1. Finn Russell for Dan Biggar

Woodward wrote: “I was hoping for a statement at fly-half in the form of Finn Russell or even Marcus Smith. 

“But it’s Dan Biggar again, this time reunited with Ali Price at scrum-half. 

“Unless Price can rediscover his fast-breaking game, I’m not seeing how this combination poses the threat or point of difference the Lions have been lacking so far.”
