Will Greenwood picks shock Lions midfield, leaving out Davies and Slade

Legendary England centre Will Greenwood has picked a surprise Lions centre partnership to take on the British & Irish Lions in 2021.

The majority of pundits have selected man of the series Jonathan Davies alongside England powerhouse Manu Tuilagi.

At outside-centre, Greenwood has picked the Sale Sharks centre, but he’s gone for a somewhat shock selection at inside centre.

13. Manu Tuilagi (43 England caps, British & Irish Lions 2013)

“2019 saw Tuilagi return to the England fold and produce a considerable impact. He was essential in their run to the World Cup final in Japan.”

12. Robbie Henshaw (43 Ireland caps, British & Irish Lions 2017)

“Still just 27, Henshaw has been one of the premier centres in the northern hemisphere for the last two World Cup cycles.”

Take a look at the rest of his selection:

15. Stuart Hogg (76 Scotland caps, British & Irish Lions 2013, 2017)

“A tourist twice already, Scotland skipper Hogg is yet to pick up a Test cap for the Lions, having been too young in 2013 and suffered injury in 2017.”


14. Jonny May (56 England caps)

“Never a Lion before, 29-year-old May has been one of the most consistent players in world rugby for some time, and has stood out again in 2020.”


11. Liam Williams (62 Wales caps, British & Irish Lions 2017)

The starting Lions full-back on the most recent tour in 2017 to New Zealand, Williams’ career has gone from strength-to-strength since.
