There’s gonna be plenty of these to come so get used to it.
By now you’ve probably seen Warren Gatland’s 2017 British & Irish Lions squad, if not then where the hell have you been hiding?
There were plenty of surprises overall, some massive exclusions and equally massive inclusions with. Dylan Hartley, Joe Launchbury and George Ford all miss out, while the likes of Kyle Sinckler, Ben Te’o and Jared Payne are in.
Gatland has gone with a 41-man squad, which being honest- makes a whole lot of sense considering the amount of games they will play and the calibre of opponents.
Brian O’Driscoll and Ben Kay have had their say on the selection, including the biggest shocks for them. Ross Moriarty for BOD and Jared Payne for Kay.
