“Arguably better” – Lions star-studded alternative XV

Star-studded and experienced, this alternative British & Irish Lions XV underlines Warren Gatland’s immense strength in depth.

Head coach Gatland said picking the XV was “incredibly difficult”.

“In my four Tours as a Lions coach, this was by far the hardest Test selection I have been involved in,” said Gatland.

“We couldn’t have asked for more from the players so far; they’ve all put their hands up and made picking a starting XV incredibly difficult.

“In truth, we would have been happy with any number of different combinations across the 23. However, we’re very pleased with the side we’ve settled on.”
