NZ Journalist Make A Couple Of Selection Calls That All Lions Fans Agree With

He’s got no choice at this stage.

Warren Gatland names his Lions team at 8pm and has some massive decisions to make. His captain Sam Warburton has been way off the pace, while Irishman Sean O’Brien has been back to his bulldozing best.

His Welsh captain Alun Wyn Jones will likely miss out to Saracens duo Maro Itoje and Kruis, leaving the door open for Peter O’Mahony to lead the Lions in Eden Park on Saturday. New Zealand journalist Liam Napier of stuff, says not only should O’Brien start, but CJ Stander should be on the bench ahead of Warburton.

If Gatland picks on form there should be no place in his test squad for captain Sam Warburton.
Sean O’Brien should start at openside flanker and brutal South African-born Stander is a must inclusion on the bench, with Peter O’Mahony expected to be named captain and Taulupe Faletau continuing his rampage from No 8.
