South Africa 2021.
The wait is finally over. Head coach Warren Gatland is set to name his British and Irish Lions squad shortly ahead of this summer’s tour of South Africa.
Will Gatland include some bolters? Perhaps a certain Sam Simmonds who is reportedly set to be named in his squad despite being overlooked by England boss Eddie Jones time and time again.
Will Johnny Sexton make the cut despite his recent injury problems? Who will be named captain?
Sit back, relax and get ready. This is gonna be fun. The show starts at 11.45am with the captain set to be announced at 12.15pm and the squad at 12.30pm.
The four year wait is about to come to an end.
