2017 British and Irish Lions Squad – Mark 3

At the start of the season we said that as this is a Lions year, once a month in the Weekend Review, we would select our British and Irish Lions XV.


The idea was that over the course of the season things should slowly change, and it would be a good bit of fun to see who has drifted in and out of our fantasy team.


So far this month we have not yet done one, so with this being the start of half term, what better time to have another crack at a British and Irish Lions XV.
