My pack is based on having the best ball handling players to play the fast game we need to turn over S.A, compensating for the comparative lack of bulk with big hitters in midfield, with the creativity in the back 3 to create chances when we go wide.

Essentially I'm also conceding the scrum may not go so well and relying on plays at the breakdown to be the way we get forward ball. Bench is also based on versatility. That's the only way Daly gets anywhere near the team. Thinking last 10 mins for him when SA get a bit leggy.

I know this team is a bit out there and many may not agree, but picking a lions 15 is not an easy task, so again please be nice

Not a bad effort my friend! I'd point out that Sinckler is a Tighthead prop, like Furlong, so on the Loosehead you'd have options like Genge, Healy, Sutherland, Wyn Jones, Mako Vunipola and Joe Marler, also the 19 shirt is usually a second row sub? But other than that, good try!

Still think it’s hard to get all the back 5 on to the pitch compared to an average front row selection.

The backs are hard because there aren’t many standouts at the moment. Hadn’t realised how average our backs are until I can’t think who to put in.
