The Telegraph Picks Their Lions Squad For The 2021 Tour

A way to go yet.

The Lions 2017 tour of New Zealand is barely over and we’re already looking forward to the next one in four years time and rightly so. The Lions will take on South Africa in 2021 in what promises to be another exciting tour.

The last time the Lions took on South Africa in 2007 they were the defending world champions just like New Zealand this year, but unfortunately lost the series 2-1. What’s really annoying about that series is the fact that the Lions really could have won it. No doubt it makes 2021 all the more interesting.

It may be four whole years away, but The Telegraph have gone and had a go at predicting a squad for the tour. Have a look below and let us know what you think.
