Sky Sports Pundits Pick Their 2017 British & Irish Lions Teams
The World Cup is over for another four years but before New Zealand start to think about a hat-trick of titles, there is a British and Irish Lions tour to consider.
The Lions will tour New Zealand in 2017 and already talk has turned to who will make the grade. Have the best of Britain and Ireland got any chance of beating the world champions?
Wales coach Warren Gatland, who led the Lions to a series win against Australia in 2013, could well be the man to lead the class of 2017, although fellow Kiwi – and Ireland coach – Joe Schmidt is also a strong contender.
Sky got seven rugby pundits to select their British and Irish lions XV to take on New Zealand in the first Test on the 24th of June 2017 at Eden Park, Auckland.
