“Going to be a superstar” – Warren Gatland ranks his three top breakout stars from Lions tour

Asked about the players that impressed him in South Africa, and who could form the core of the 2025 squad, Warren Gatland named three players.

#3. Robbie Henshaw (Ireland)

The Ireland centre was probably the best Irish player of the Test Series [edging Tadhg Furlong] and will be 32 when the next series rolls around. If form and fitness stay with him, he would surely be pressing for a third tour.

Gatland said: “I thought Robbie Henshaw was excellent throughout the tour and he probably learned a lot from the experience four years ago. That really brought him on, really improved him as a player.”
