BT Sport have just dropped Finn Russell’s highlights from 2020 – Why he must start for Lions
BT Sport have just dropped Finn Russell’s highlights from 2020 . The highlights show just hy he must start for Lions against South Africa in 2021.
The sports broadcaster which handles the rugby rights for the Champiosn Cup showcased all of his highlights from the 2019-2020 tournament. The highlights make you realise just how good the Scotman has been for Racing 92 this year.
Many rugby fans believe that either Dan Biggar or Johnny Sexton should be starting at fly-half for the Lions in 2021, however it is quite clear that Russell is one of the most dangerous rugby players in Europe if not the World.
It is incredible to think that these Finn Russell highlights are only from the Champions Cup this year. It doesn’t show all the great things that he has been doing in the Top 14 this year as well.
