Paul O’Connell Picks His Lions XV From Round 2 Of The Six Nations

Former Lions captain Paul O’Connell has picked his Lions XV from round two of the RBS Six Nations.

The legendary lock has gone with an interesting selection, opting to reward Ken Owens with a spot in the starting line-up following his heroics against England as well as opting to slot in Jamie Heaslip in the unfamiliar role of six

Ross Moriarty’s mammoth game against Eddie Jones’ side this past weekend also sees him get a spot in the XV at eight.
