Eleven Englishman make the Lions squad

Eleven Englishman make the Lions squad

Despite a rather dissapointing 2021 Six Nations campaign Warren Gatland has shown his trust in some of the English players which many feel are struggling with form while rewarding some form players.

England are the most represented of the Home Nations beating Wales' tally of 10 and Ireland and Scotland's tally of eight. 


Sam Simmonds is the biggest talking point in terms of new players with the 8th man having a storming two seasons but overlooked by Eddie Jones. Elliot Daly, Mako Vunipola, Owen Farrell and Courtney Lawes all make it in either trying to regain some form of the last few months or returning from injury.

Billy Vunipola misses out along with Kyle Sinckler and Jonny May with Manu Tuilagi still an injury concern many thought he would be included
