Who does Warren Gatland feel could be Lions captain in 2021?

2021 Lions tour coach Warren Gatland has marked two potential captains to lead the team in South Africa.

“It’s got to be someone who has the respect of everyone in the squad,” Gatland said at the press conference confirming his appointment as head coach.

“Ideally you want someone who is coming from a team that is performing well and has been successful.

“Alun Wyn Jones comes to mind at the moment in terms of what he has achieved in the game.

“Owen Farrell has definitely been incredibly success as well.

“Potentially those two players would be the ones you would talk about if you was picking a team right now.

“But two years away is a long time and you never know what’s going to happen in the game; who comes to the forefront, who has been successful and who are the potential candidates?”
