Jonny Sexton Is The Only Irish Player In Will Greenwood's Lions Test Team.

Jonny Sexton Is The Only Irish Player In Will Greenwood's Lions Test Team.
By Paul Ring Updated

Now whatever anyone says, making up a Lions test team months before a test is fun and a deeply biased thing to do. Here's former Lion and World Cup winner Will Greenwood's selection:

15.Hogg 14.Halfpenny 13.Tuilagi 12.Roberts 11.North 10.Sexton 9.Phillips 8.Faletau 7.Warburton 6.Robshaw 5.Parling 4.Evans 3.Jones 2.Hibbard 1.Grant.

The rather depressing thing is; only one Irishman is a glaring ommission there. Drico for Tuilagi. Maybe O'Brien for Robshaw but that's a stretch. Our best hopes for Lions this summer might be recoveries for Paul O'Connell, Tommy Bowe and Simon Zebo.

What is he doing by moving Halfpenny and not having Tipuric though?
