“We think you may have missed the point”

Warren Gatland today named his 2017 British and Irish Lions squad. 16 English, 12 Welsh, 11 Irish and 2 Scots- 41 players in total.

Now that we know the squad, the message going forward is #AllForOne. Four proud rugby nations coming together and all that.

BT Sport seem to have missed the point however after Tweeting this image (that was of course swiftly deleted), of Ireland- except it’s kind of missing a few counties.

Irish Rugby were obviously not happy.

We’re hoping it was simply a very unfortunate mistake by their graphic design team, and thankfully they ended up fixing it.
