CONFIRMED: Scottish duo to join the Lions squad

In addition to the earlier announcement, following the conclusion of Australia versus Scotland, the British & Irish Lions have called up Allan Dell and Finn Russell.  The duo will link up with the squad in Hamilton tomorrow (Sunday).

Gatland commented: “We have said all along that we need to give ourselves the best chance of winning the Test series and that could potentially involve calling up players.

“Bringing in these players from an identical time zone, who can hit the ground running and step straight in rather than having to adjust following long-haul travel will help us manage players before the 1st Test, give us quality training numbers to prepare properly as well as offering us options for selection for the Chiefs match.”
