Sam Warburton has fans raging as he picks obscenely anti-English Lions XV to face Springboks

There was outrage and dismay among some social media users today after Sam Warburton revealed his British and Irish Lions XV to face the Springboks next summer.

The former Lions skipper didn’t mess around when picking his starting side just a day after the Autumn Nations Cup final.

Fans immediately replied in anger to Warburton’s picks that he posted on his a Twitter.

The Wales legend chose only to pick two England players in his side despite them emerging as victors in the Autumn Nations Cup.

Here is the team that Warburton picked to face South Africa in next year’s tour.

As you can see, the only English players in that starting XV are Luke Cowan-Dickie and Maro Itoje.

As you can imagine, the backlash on social media from England fans was intense.

We are not surprised that Warburton would pick a team like this, but we did expect better from him.

The Lions XV will face the Springboks in 2021, in one of the most famously anticipated series in a generation! Can’t wait!
