Telegraph Name Their Post-Six Nations Lions Squad

Telegraph Name Their Post-Six Nations Lions Squad
By Balls Team Updated

The announcement of Warren Gatland's Lions squad for this summer's tour of New Zealand is now just a month away.

Performances during the Six Nations will have gone a long way towards making up the head coach's mind for who he will include in what is likely to be a 37-man squad.

Next weekend's Champions Cup quarter-finals represent the final major opportunity for players to insert themselves into Gatland's plans.

The Telegraph have named who they believe will be on that plane to New Zealand. Their squad consists of 12 from Six Nations champions England, 11 from Grand Slam party spoilers Ireland, eight from Wales and six from Scotland.

Gatland names his squad and captain on April 19th.

Here's the full squad.
