Mystic Jack’s Lions 2017 Squad Prediction

Sporting Limerick’s Jack Neville picks his Lions squad.

With less than 24 hours before he announces his 2017 British and Irish Lions squad, Warran Galtland may want to have a look at my potential Lions squad which is a sure thing to defeat the All-Blacks this summer.

With 13 Irish men leading the cause coupled with 11 Welsh, 10 English and 3 Scottish, this 37 man squad have the perfect blend of experience and youth to overthrow the back-to-back World Champions.

Captaining the side would be Munster’s Peter O’Mahony. Whilst only back from injury and not a definite to start, his leadership abilities are unrivalled in this squad. Warburton to deputise in his absence.
