I could barely sleep last night with excitement about the announcement of the British and Irish Lions squad, which takes place today at 1.30pm.
We’ll report the full squad here as soon as it’s announced, and although it will end months of speculation, a new debate will surely begin.
Paul O’Connell looks set to be named as tour captain, which isn’t a huge surprise, but there are bound to be some raised eyebrows at who is and isn’t selected today.
Amongst the high-profile names that could miss out are Jonny Wilkinson (obviously), Danny Cipriani, Ryan Jones, Steve Borthwick and James Haskell – although two of these players play for Wasps, and may well travel.
There have also been a few suggestions for the ‘left-field’ choices such as Tom May, who has been in outstanding form at Newcastle.
Who else do you think might be an unexpected choice? Will Cipriani don the Lions jersey?
