Our 2017 British & Irish Lions Squad

by Adam Clark March 27, 2017

With a thrilling 2017 RBS Six Nations tournament now well and truly in the past, the impending British & Irish Lions selection has never been more poignant.  Many players have put their hand up, and the reputation of some are at an all time low.

With only club games left, the time is ticking for those who's performances have not been at the required level to raise their hand prior to the final squad selection on the 19th of April.

As armchair rugby fans of one of the contributing nations (England, Scotland, Ireland & Wales) there is no greater past time than to debate your Lions team and the makeup of the entire squad.  

Here is our 38 man squad selected from the performances in the 2017 6 Nations and a couple of shoo-in's selected on reputation.
