Head coach Warren Gatland has revealed he will name the smallest touring party ever assembled for a British & Irish Lions tour in 2021
Gatz took 41 players on the last tour but has revealed the much smaller group next year.
“We’re probably looking at 35 or 36 players,” he said in a recent interview.
Therefore, the squad who jets off to South Africa next July is sure to leave a few big names behind.
Here, RUCK selects five huge names who we think could very well be the unlucky ones to miss out on selection.

Lads, it’s impossible to deny the centre was phenomenal four years ago in New Zealand and he was deservedly the man of the series – but when was the last time he honestly had decent game? Under Wayne Pivac, the 30-year-old has made five underwhelming appearances with an average score of 5/10 from player rating section The Rugby Paper during this period. We can pretend he’s the same player all we want, but it’s simply not true.
