Brian O’Driscoll & Ben Kay Pick Their Lions XV Following Today’s Squad Announcement

What do you think?

The wait is over, we now know who the 41 men are that will be on the plane to New Zealand this summer with the British & Irish Lions.

No more talk of bolters or wildcards. It’s now time to shift focus onto what we’ve got to work with based on Gatland’s selection.

Overall the general consensus is everyone is happy with the squad. Well maybe not the Scots. That aside it’s an exciting look squad with plenty of balance. Sure some top stars missed out, but realistically a lot of them will end up being called up such is the gruelling schedule ahead of the Lions.

Ben Kay and Brian O’Driscoll had a look at the squad on Rugby Tonight Extra and came up with the XV they would pick from the squad announcement. Have a look below and let us know what you think.
