ANDY GOODE: MY LIONS TEST XV

BACK-THREE:

15. Stuart Hogg (Scotland); 14. George North (Wales), 11. Duhan van der Merwe (Scotland)

GOODE SAID: ” I have gone George North and Duhan van der Merwe. North was close to going in the centres with Henshaw but I love Jonathan Davies. He is a great player.”

CENTRES:

13. Jonathan Davies (Wales), 12. Robbie Henshaw (Ireland)
