The Best Social Media Reactions To Warren Gatland’s British & Irish Lions Squad
The wait is finally over.
Warren Gatland ended months of speculation this afternoon when he named his British & Irish Lions squad for this summer’s tour of New Zealand.
Gats has gone with a 41-man squad and you can’t really blame him, considering the amount of games to be played and the calibre of opposition.
Understandably social media has gone absolutely nuts since this announcement and will continue to do so over the coming days.
Here’s some of the best bits.
Massive thanks for all the messages. Honoured to be selected for @lionsofficial tour!
