Lions Squad Prediction

Lions New Zealand


Probables: Tadhg Furlong (Ire), Dan Cole (Eng)

Possibles: Tom Francis (Wal)

Wildcard: Kyle Sinkler (Eng)

Apparently Harlequin Kyle Sinkler is on the plane. An excellent choice if true.



Probables: Rory Best (Ire), Ken Owens (Wal)

Possibles: Dylan Hartley (Eng), Jamie George (Eng)

Wildcard: Richard Hibbard (Wal)

Rumour has it that out-of-favour Hibbard will tour.



Probables: Mako Vunipola (Eng), Jack McGrath (Ire)

Possibles: Joe Marler (Eng)

Wildcard: Cian Healy (Ire)

Joe Marler should tour but Gatland is a long term admirer of Healy.



Probables: Maro Itoje (Eng), Alun Wyn Jones (Wal)

Possibles: Joe Launchbury (Eng), Courtney Lawes (Eng), Donnacha Ryan (Ire)

Wildcard: Luke Charteris (Wal), George Kruis (Eng)

News today has suggested that Launchbury will not tour. Instead Gatland is going for George Kruis, despite his long term injury. There are also whispers that Inspector Gadget may be on the plane…



Probables: CJ Stander (Ire), Justin Tipuric (Wal), Sam Warburton (Wal) – Captain

Possibles: Sean O’Brien (Ire), Peter O’Mahony (Ire)

Wildcard: James Haskell (Eng)

Haskell probably won’t tour.


Number 8

Probables: Billy Vunipola (Eng), Taulupe Faletau (Wal)

Possibles: Nathan Hughes (Eng)

Wildcard: Freddie Clarke (Eng)

Gloucester’s Freddie Clarke put his hand up last weekend with a monster performance.



Probables: Conor Murray (Ire), Rhys Webb (Wal)

Possibles: Ben Youngs (Eng)

Wildcard: Richard Wigglesworth (Eng)

Don’t expect any surprises here.



Probables: Johnny Sexton (Ire), Owen Farrell (Eng)

Possibles: Dan Biggar (Wal), George Ford (Eng)

Wildcard: Finn Russell (Sco)

Dan Biggar shouldn’t go but many fear he will.



Probables: Robbie Henshaw (Ire), Jonathan Joseph (Eng), Jonathan Davies (Wal)

Possibles: Elliot Daly (Eng), Garry Ringrose (Ire)

Wildcard: Ben Te’o (Eng)

Shock as JJ looks set to miss out whilst Te’o looks to have a ticket. With Farrell selected as a Fly-half, Daly could be selected as a Centre.



Probables: George North (Wal), Anthony Watson (Eng)

Possibles: Tommy Seymour (Sco), Simon Zebo (Ire)

Wildcard: Jack Nowell (Eng), Christian Wade (Eng)

Fan-favourite Wade and the Premierships’s top try scorer would be quite the wildcard here.



Probables: Stuart Hogg (Sco)

Possibles: Liam Williams (Wal)

Wildcard: Leigh Halfpenny (Wal)

Expect Williams to tour.
