The Lions XV for the Second Test with South Africa will be announced at lunchtime today, and speculation about potential changes has been rife.
It’s almost inevitable that the front row will be different, with Adam Jones replacing Phil Vickery and Matthew Rees coming in for Lee Mears.
The second row may need some more ballast, but dropping Alun Wyn Jones seems so unfair that Paul O’Connell could be dropped – removing your captain seems like too drastic a step for me, so Simon Shaw could come in for Jones.
In the back row, Jamie Heaslip wasn’t hugely effective, but I would stick with him. I would also stick with David Wallace, but prepared to bring on Martyn Williams if the openside isn’t securing the breakdown.
Everyone else I would leave untouched, with Hook on the bench to come on if we go behind. What do you think?
