Warren Gatland names a few players almost guaranteed to feature on the 2021 Lions tour

British and Irish Lions head coach Warren Gatland has suggested that his squad to face South Africa in the 2021 Lions tour could be loaded full of England players.


Speaking to former England back Ugo Monye on the BBC's Rugby Union Weekly, Gatland listed Jamie George, Maro Itoje, Tom Curry, Anthony Watson and Manu Tuilagi as the five players that are definitely going to be picked.

The former Wales boss was full of praise for England outside back, Anthony Watson in particular.

Gatland was also full of praise of Scotland’s Stuart Hogg and Ireland’s Tadhg Furlong, suggesting they are both guaranteed to take on the Springboks in two years time.

He also said that Wales captain Alun-Wyn Jones is likely to go, as is winger Josh Adams before listing 22-year-old flanker Aaron Wainwright as a player who could provide an x-factor to the Lions.
