Lions Legends choose their British & Irish Lions XV

by 1 March 21, 2016

  The RBS Six Nations has been and gone for another year, but rugby fans and pundits around the world are already discussing who would make it into their British & Irish Lions side to tour New Zealand in 2017. Ambassadors Martin Johnson, Keith Wood and Shane Williams have been involved with an impressive eight Lions tours between them, so they know what is required to be a success. Here are their sides... Eight Englishmen, three Scots, and two each from Ireland and Wales make up the former England and Lions captain's team. Understandable given England's Grand Slam, whilst it's hard to argue with his other picks after improved Scotland performances, and Wales and Ireland not quite living up to expectations. The 58 times capped ex-Ireland hooker has picked a very similar side to Johnno, with just two changes - CJ Stander and Conor Murray replacing Chris Robshaw and Ben Youngs respectively. Shane has backed Scotland in his side, with 6 players from North of the border featuring alongside 6 Englishmen, 2 from Wales and just the solitary Irish player in Robbie Henshaw. That's what the experts think, but who would make your British and Irish Lions side to take on the mighty All Blacks in New Zealand next year? Let us know in the comments section below.
