30+ on Lions Tour stand by

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

With all the furore surrounding the more controversial selections or non-selections for the Lions tour to South Africa, it is important to remember that the 37 man squad picked by Warren Gatland last week will almost certainly not be the squad that departs for South Africa in June.

Inevitably there will be injuries to selected players before the end of the domestic season which may rule out one or two and, given the enormous physical challenge that a tour to South Africa presents, certainly there will be casualties and it is almost guaranteed that the tour party returning from South Africa at the end of the trip will look quite different from the group embarking on it. 

Hence, I guess, the fact that, according to reports, Warren Gatland has over 30 players on “stand by” for the squad.

So, for the likes of Johnny Sexton, James Ryan, Kyle Sinckler, Josh Navidi etc, hope is by no means lost.

And, with only a 1 hour time difference between the UK and South Africa, there will be no requirement this time around for a “Geography Six“.
