VOTE: Who would be in your British and Irish Lions XV for the tour of New Zealand?

VOTE: Who would you pick in your Lions XV for the first test?

20/06/2017 at 09:46Updated 20/06/2017 at 10:46

Who should make British and Irish Lions starting line-up is a debate that divides friendships, families and nations… but now it’s time to have your say.

The warm-up matches are over and the Lions are gearing up for their opener against the All Blacks on Saturday.

Potential starters have fallen by the wayside – from Billy Vunipola to Stuart Hogg – yet plenty of players have stuck their hands up during one of the most competitive build-ups to a test series the Lions have ever seen.

Warren Gatland no doubt has his starting XV in mind.

But is he right?

Vote for who you think should be lining up against Kieran Read, Beauden Barrett and co at Eden Park on Saturday.


Loose Head Prop

Ireland's Jack McGrath was rock solid in the Six Nations, but could Mako Vunipola's dynamic style or Joe Marler's aggressive scrummaging give one of the English options the edge?

Hooker

Rory Best was a much-maligned absentee from Warren Gatland's initial squad four years ago, but he's come under big pressure for his place from Welshman Ken Owens and the Saracens star Jamie George.

Tight Head Prop

Kyle Sinckler's rampaging running with ball in hand has seen him burst into contention alongside England's man-mountain Dan Cole and the revelation that is Tadhg Furlong (who excelled against the All Blacks in Chicago, lest we forget).

Second Row

One of the most competitive areas of selection to even make the tour, the second row continues to be an area of the team that splits opinion. Alun-Wyn Jones is one of the big leadership figures, but has he done enough to break up the Saracens pairing of Maro Itoje and George Kruis. As one of the form players on tour, could Courtney Lawes have forced his way into Gatland's plans, or is the coach preparing to spring a surprise by picking the excellent ball-handler Iain Henderson?

Number Eight

Billy Vunipola's absence will be sorely missed, but in Taulupe Faletau, CJ Stander and James Haskell there are still some quality options at eight in the squad.

The key decision-making position on the pitch has given Gatland some headaches on tour. Will Owen Farrell be fit in time, is Jonny Sexton in good enough form to unlock the All Blacks, or could Dan Biggar bring something the hosts aren't expecting?

Ben Te'o is the archetypal 'bolter' - barely an England player to a possible starting Lion. But could Gatland opt for a Farrell-Sexton pairing, or does he see something in Robbie Henshaw that gives the Irishman the edge?

Left Winger

George North is one of Gatland's favourites, but he's not looking quite himself of late. A paucity of natural fits in the position could see North survive, although the versatility of Elliot Daly means he's a viable alternative and Anthony Watson's lightning pace would be an asset on either wing. Tommy Seymour is the outside bet.

Jack Nowell's nightmare start to tour effectively ruled himself out of contention, despite a much-improved showing against the Chiefs, but in Anthony Watson and Liam Williams there are some classy options still available to the selectors, and Elliot Daly's versatility is proving why he was a terrific choice for the touring party.
