Martin Johnson Picks His Lions XV From Round 2 Of The Six Nations

Former Lions captain Martin Johnson has had a go at picking his British & Irish Lions XV from Round 2 of the Six Nations.

The 2003 Rugby World Cup winner, who captained the Lions to a series victory over South Africa in 1997, has gone with an interesting selection.

Two Irishmen make his team with Tadhg Furlong getting the nod at tighthead and hat-trick hero CJ Stander slotting in at six.

Johnson has six Englishmen in his team with Nowell and Daly on the wings, Farrell at inside centre and Ford at ten, as well as Joe Marler at loosehead and Courtney Lawes packing down in the second-row.

What do you think of Johnson’s selection?
