WATCH: The Moment Scotland’s Chris Harris Found Out He Was A Lion Is Pure Joy


Head coach Warren Gatland and his coaching team threw out a few surprises this morning when naming their 37-man Lions squad to travel to South Africa.

Big names like Jonathan Davies, Kyle Sinckler, James Ryan and Johnny Sexton all miss out with a number of ‘bolters’ getting the nod instead.

A very special British & Irish Lions House of Rugby show – fronted by Sean O'Brien and Alex Goode – is available now and will run for the duration of the tour. Follow and subscribe to it HERE

Once such ‘bolter’ is Scotland centre Chris Harris, who wasn’t in too many predicted selections before this morning’s big reveal.

Harris’ reaction to being named was filmed by his club Gloucester this morning and it’s an absolute joy to watch. You can see just how much it means to him and how proud his teammates are of him.
