Watch: Jared Payne Reacts To His Shock British & Irish Lions Inclusion
Who saw this coming?
Jared Payne was the biggest shock inclusion when Warren Gatland named his 41-man British & Irish Lions squad this afternoon.
The Ulster and Ireland star has only recently returned to full fitness and has been rarely mentioned in recent weeks when it comes to selection.

Payne however knows a lot about New Zealand rugby, being a native that has a lot of Super Rugby experience.
He’s also able to play across the backline and brings excellent defensive leadership qualities to the squad. Check out his reaction to being picked below.
