Paul O’Connell is back with his British & Irish Lions XV from Round 3 of the Six Nations.

The former Ireland, Munster and Lions captain has once again gone with an interesting selection.

Conor Murray is joined at half-back by Johnny Sexton, who made a triumphant return against France, with Farrell and Davies and inside and outside centre respectively.

House of Rugby is back with a brand new URC show – fronted by RugbyLAD founder Jason Hennessy and Ireland international Megan Williams. Follow and subscribe to it HERE.

O’Connell has gone for Jack Nowell on one wing, despite only making a brief cameo, with Scotland’s Tommy Seymour on the other wing after a superb performance against Wales on Saturday. Stuart Hogg once again slots in at fullback, with O’Connell branding him the Player of the Championship so far.

Mako Vunipola is another player who makes O’Connell’s side despite only making a cameo against Italy. Have a look at his team below and let us know what you think.
