Gavin Hastings picks his British & Irish Lions starting XV for 2013

15. Rob Kearney - Best fullback in the world.

14. Alex Cuthbert - Just pips Bowe due to having a lot more power which will be useful agains a small aussie side.

13. Manu Tuilagi - Unstoppable Centre Good Luck Rob Horne.

12. Jonathan Davies - Quality Rugby player, consistent & seems to get on the scoresheet frequently.

11. George North - Massive Force on the wing and the ideal no 11.

10. Toby Flood - Is everyone forgetting he can kick whereas sexton cannot kick!

9. Ben Youngs - Ripped aussies to shreds last time he was out there.

8. Jamie Heaslip - Proven international performances at 8 unlike most UK 8s at the moment who struggle for consistency on the international stage.

7. Sam Warburton - Best no 7 in the northern hemisphere

6. Tom Croft - Quality all round game and better line out than most.

5. Courtney Lawes - Can't see a better partner for Gray and essaintly puts 4 back rowers in the team, would be Lydiate but don't think he could play lock that well.

4. Richie Gray - Best Lock in the UK has to be on that team sheet.

3. Dan Cole - Quality blindside and can't be overlooked

2. Dylan Hartley - Hate him but still brilliant hooker if he can sort out his line outs.

1. Gethin Jenkins - Obvious choice if fit but that's a big if.

Quade Cooper - Public Enemy Number One in New Zealand

It's not like McCaw's innocent he probably does that every match and worse but we just don't see it.
