Preparation for the British & Irish Lions tour to Africa kick-started this week with a group of the players selected meeting up in Jersey.
But who will make Warren Gatland’s starting XV for the opening test against the Springboks?
Bookmakers Sky Bet have revealed the Lions’ most likely line-up according to the very latest odds.
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.
The 22-year-old was excellent for England during the Six Nations, and had been in fine form for Sale Sharks as the North West side secured a rare top four finish in the Gallagher Premiership.
But Tom’s inclusion is likely to come at the expense of either Justin Tipuric or Hamish Watson, say Sky Bet.
Take a look at the full side below. Odds are correct as of 16 June, 10am.
- 1. Wyn Jones (Wales) – 5/6
- 2. Ken Owens (Wales) – 2/5
- 3. Tadhg Furlong (Ireland) – 1/5
