How the bookies think the Lions will line-up after Alun Wyn Jones ruled out

Alun Wyn Jones will miss the British and Irish Lions tour of South Africa because of a shoulder injury and Ireland scrum-half Conor Murray will captain the side instead.

Jones dislocated his shoulder during Saturday’s warm-up game against Japan, where Justin Tipuric also sustained a tour-ending shoulder injury.

Bookmakers Sky Bet have revealed the Lions’ most likely line-up according to the very latest odds with Jones.

Tom Curry is priced at 8/13 to start for the Lions against the Springboks

And it’s good news for England and Sale Sharks back-rower Tom Curry, who’s now odds-on at 8/13 to make the cut on July 24.

Take a look at the full side below. Odds are correct as of 16 June, 10am.

FRONT-ROW:

  • 1. Wyn Jones (Wales) – 5/6
  • 2. Jamie George (England) – 2/5
  • 3. Tadhg Furlong (Ireland) – 1/5
