Warburton leads strong Lions squad

The much-anticipated British and Irish Lions squad to tour Australia later this year has been named by coach Warren Gatland.

Welsh flanker Sam Warburton leads a 37-man squad that features a reasonable split of talent from the four home unions, although, as is to be expected, there are rather fewer Scots than men from the other three countries.

No place was made for English veterans Johnny Wilkinson or Andrew Sheridan, both of whom currently play in France, with Gatland preferring to select those who play their rugby domestically within the British Isles. That said, the squad is probably the most cosmopolitan Lions outfit yet assembled, with the likes of Sean Matiland, Manu Tuilagi, Matt Stevens, Mako Vunipola and Toby Faletau all born elsewhere and Lions-qualified through residence.

British & Irish Lions: Leigh Halfpenny, Stuart Hogg, Rob Kearney, Tommy Bowe, Alex Cuthbert, Sean Maitland, George North, Jonathan Davies, Brian O’Driscoll, Jamie Roberts, Manusamoa Tuilagi, Owen Farrell, Jonathan Sexton, Conor Murray, Mike Phillips, Ben Youngs, Dan Cole, Cian Healy, Gethin Jenkins, Adam Jones, Matt Stevens, Mako Vunipola, Dylan Hartley, Richard Hibbard, Tom Youngs, Ian Evans, Richie Gray, Alun Wyn Jones, Paul O’Connell, Geoff Parling, Tom Croft, Toby Faletau, Jamie Heaslip, Dan Lydiate, Sean O’Brien, Justin Tipuric, Sam Warburton (Captain).
