If the plane to New Zealand was leaving tomorrow, who would be on it?
Thats’s the question The Telegraph is trying to answer with their latest 37-man British & Irish Lions squad.
This year’s Six Nations is the last chance for Lions hopefuls to make a case to Warren Gatland, and with just two rounds left to play, we have a fair idea of who will probably end up on the plane this summer.
Have a look at their selection below and let us know what you think.
