A Lions XV Made Up Of Players Who Haven’t Toured Before

Not a bad team.

Everybody talks about the strength in-depth that New Zealand currently has, but the same can be said for the British & Irish Lions this year.

This may be the most difficult squad to pick in history, with so many players to choose from in each position. The interesting thing is how many of these players have come to light since the last tour.

The lads over at ESPN have had a go at picking an XV made up of Lions tour debutants, and it makes for some very interesting reading.

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