Another day, another British & Irish Lions XV.
It seems we can’t go a day here without a Lions XV by a former player or pundit, but admit it- you love it. It’s interesting to see the selections and to be fair we alway knew this was going to be the case heading into the Six Nations.
Today we’ve got a former Lions winger in the shape of Welsh legend Shane Williams. The former World Player of the Year has come up with a few eyebrow raising selections in recent months, and hasn’t disappointed once again.
After their excellent win over Ireland, Williams has a whopping 7 Scots in his side and four Welsh, despite their underwhelming performance against Italy. Only two Englishmen make his team and they’re left-field selections in the form of Dan Cole and Elliot Daly.
