Looks like the Australians don’t rate England too much…

Popular Australian media outlet Fox Sports have had a go at picking a British & Irish Lions XV they reckon could ‘topple’ the All Blacks this summer.

It’s a very interesting line-up with no room for the likes of Owen Farrell, Billy Vunipola and Maro Itoje. In fact there’s just two England players in the entire line-up, and one of them is Ben Te’o!

Have a look at the team below and let us know what you think.
