    The great thing about Lions tours to SA are that the games are on at reasonable hour and in the afternoon. Hopefully we’ll be back to some normality next summer. What a summer of sport to look forward to with Olympics, Euro 2021 and Lions tour to look forward to.

    I hope he doesn't. I don't reaky see what parks brings Tbh. Not particularly big, quick, flash feet or known as a distributer. I guess he is decent in defence. I'd start tuilangi at 12 and have a speed merchant at 13. We won't beat SA by trying to go straight through them. England tried and failed badly in the WC.
    What we need to do is gain parity at the scrum and lineout and then play around them. That's why I'd have as much mobility as I could in the back row. Whilst also slotting in a ball carrier.
    I'd go

    The brutal and bloody second Lions Test in South Africa in 2009 https://the42.ie/5059381

    Murray Kinsella did an analysis of the second test from the last tour to South Africa.
