The Bookies Odds For The 2021 Lions Captaincy Are Out – & One Man Already Leads The Way

Skipper.

England captain Owen Farrell has emerged as the 9-4 bookies favourite to captain the British and Irish Lions in 2021.

Farrell guided England to the Rugby World Cup final as captain last year and looks best placed to replace Sam Warburton as captain who retired shortly after the 2017 tour of New Zealand.

Wales captain Alun Wyn Jones is next at a moderately priced 5-2 despite that fact that he will be 35 by the time the tour of South Africa comes around next year.

Maro Itoje meanwhile can be found at 11-2 with a number of pundits and ex-pros tipping him as an outside bet to lead the Lions.

Ireland captain Johnny Sexton can be got at 14-1 with Peter O’Mahony, who captained the Lions in their first Test against New Zealand in 2017, can be got at 16-1.
