Johnny Sexton, Owen Farrell, Leigh Halfpenny or Dan Biggar – who should be the Lions kicker?

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…
