My Fifteen to take on the Springboks

The Starting Fifteen - Lee Byrne, Tommy Bowe, Jamie Roberts, Brian O'Driscoll, Luke Fitzgerald, Stephen Jones, Mike Phillips, Gethin Jenkins, Lee Mears, Adam Jones, Paul O'Connell, Alun-Wyn Jones, Tom Croft, Jamie Heaslip, Martyn Williams.

The Bench - James Hook, Ugo Monya, Harry Ellis, Andrew Sheridan, Ross Ford, David Wallace, Nathan Hines.

The Lions will have to be quick - which is why I choose Fitsgerald, Gethin Jenkins, Martyn Williams and Alun-Wyn Jones. Unluckiest man is Ronan O'Gara, but Hook gets in because he can cover all back line positions - and the bench will need forwards. Its going to be a war up front.

Perhaps not Fitzgerald - I hope they give Shane another run out on Tuesday. Otherwise about right!

Dewi - Pains me to say it, but I think both Monya and Fitzgerald are ahead of Shane at the moment. He may well play on Tuesday, but will have to something special to force his way into the side
