Which players can we expect to see run out in the famous red and white of the British and Irish Lions against the Wallabies in June?

Sky Sports UK commentators Scott Quinnell and Will Greenwood have named their Lions starting XV following Wales' back-to-back Six Nations triumph.

The pair agreed that Welsh scrum-half Mike Phillips would "bully" the Aussies with his "fiesty and aggressive" playing style.

They were equally buoyant about the prospects of the man they tipped to partner Phillips in the halves.

"You think you boys have got the monopoly on playing football ... Johnny Sexton will come and show you some wide zip passes with left and right hands," Greenwood said.

Former Wallabies Brendan Cannon and Tim Horan agreed their were plenty of spots still up for grabs in Robbie Deans' side ahead of the first Test on June 22.

Speaking on Fox Sports' Rugby HQ, the pair named Brumbies stars Ben Mowen, Christian Lealiifano and Jesse Mogg as potential candidates for a Wallabies jumper.
