There aren’t many areas where the British & Irish Lions have an advantage over the All Blacks ahead of this summer’s Test series, but place-kicking is definitely one of them.
With Ireland’s Jonny Sexton, England’s Owen Farrell and Wales’ Dan Biggar and Leigh Halfpenny all being world-class goal-kickers, Warren Gatland will have a tough decision on his hands.
England’s Elliot Daly and Scotland’s Stuart Hogg also give Gatland two long-range kickers.
While the selection of the starting Test XV will have a big say in this, it will be intriguing to see who emerges as the first-choice place-kicker for the Lions.
For us it’s hard to look past Farrell after his 63-point haul from the tee during the Six Nations.
Nevertheless, we’d be pretty happy with any of these players taking the kicking duties in June.
Now it’s your turn – tell us who you think should kick for the Lions…
