Former England and Lions star Lawrence Dallaglio has selected his Lions XV to take on the Springboks.
On The Ruck podcast, Alex Lowe of The Times told Dallaglio that Taulupe Faletau, Tadhg Beirne and Robbie Henshaw had locked in their Lions spots with outstanding Six Nations campaigns.
He said: “Robbie Henshaw really stood up. He went on the last Lions tour but didn’t really look like he was going to get into the Test team before he got injured. He is now a real frontrunner to play on the Test team.
“Tadhg Beirne has played himself onto the tour and Toby Faletau, I think, will be the starting No.8 again.”
