British and Irish Lions – Realistic Warren Gatland choices who aren’t even playing international rugby right now

British and Irish Lions tours have been synonymous with the bolt out of the blue selections of uncapped players or those with next to no Test match experience. Rugby lovers can book their South Africa A Vs British And Irish Lions Tickets on discounted prices easily.

And while next summer’s curtailed eight-match tour to South Africa offers slightly less scope for Warren Gatland. To detonate one of his selection grenades associated with his 12 years in Wales. Don’t bet against the grizzled Kiwi lobbing a left-field name into the squad.

Derek Quinnell was uncapped when the head of the great Welsh rugby clan was plucked by Carwyn James. Straight from a strong Llanelli side to be a member of the famous 1971 Lions tour of New Zealand.In 1989 ‘Prince of Centres’ Jeremy Guscott was called up to tour Australia whilst still uncapped for England.

Little was known of the Bath man when selected other than his elegant running style and eye for a gap. And eight years later Will Greenwood was picked out of relative anonymity by Ian McGeechan due to his fantastic support lines and ability to get over the whitewash at Leicester Tigers.

That tour John Bentley also put his name up in the pantheon of Lion’s bolters nine years after winning two caps for England before going on to represent the Great Britain rugby league team.He was labelled ‘one of the best and most inspired Lions selections’.

So who are the leading uncapped contenders and those with just a brief flirtation with Test rugby that could be making headline news in 2021 Gatland names his squad for the three-Test series with the 2019 Rugby World Cup-winning Springboks?

We give you the runners and riders…..

Louis Rees-Zammit (Wales, uncapped)

Rees-Zammit admitted himself he was ‘not a happy camper’ and ‘devastated’

It was a source of frustration among some Welsh rugby fans when the 19-year-old jet-heeled Gloucester wing prodigy was called up to the 2020 Six Nations squad and never got capped by Wayne Pivac. Rugby lovers can book their South Africa Invitational Vs British And Irish Lions Tickets on discounted prices easily.

Rees-Zammit admitted himself he was ‘not a happy camper’ and devastated. Not to play after shooting to prominence at Kingsholm with 12 tries in 15 games for the west country giants.

With pace to scorch the hard grounds of South Africa, Gatland has enjoyed success with Welsh wingers in his Lions squad. If he can maintain the stellar standards when English Premiership rugby resumes next weekend. Not all eyebrows would be raised if the Cardiff-born whiz-kid was called into the squad.

Alex Dombrandt (England, uncapped)

Dombrandt has had a meteoric rise after leaving Cardiff Met for Quins in 2018,

Last weekend former England back-row big-hitter Peter Winterbottom voiced his bemusement. Why the barnstorming Wales Under-20s cap continues to stay on the England sidelines under stubborn coach Eddie Jones.

Rembrandt has had a meteoric rise after leaving Cardiff Met for Quins in 2018, when his career took off in all aspects, except recognition at Test level. Rugby lovers can book their Springboks Vs British And Irish Lions Tickets on discounted prices easily.

At 6ft 4ins and 18th 5lbs, the 23-year-old has all the attributes to cut it at Test level. This leaves Winterbottom incredulous Jones continues to snub the “The Dominator”.

He told The Rugby Paper: “Dombrandt’s potential is massive. He is a skilful player, he has good hands, whether it’s passing, linking or offloading – he’s a quick big man who hits good lines in attack.”

Winterbottom added he was even more mystified. When Jones presses openside flanker Tom Curry into No.8 duties in the Six Nations when Billy Vunipola was injured.

“There is nothing I see that means Dombrandt would not be a very good international No.8 now,” he added.

“Curry did a good job at eight but is far more explosive carrying the ball. Going forward he is one of the best in the country. That’s why I thought the England coaches would have taken him to the 2019 World Cup. If it is about refining his game at the top level and making good decisions, being there would have been invaluable.”

Uncapped by England doesn’t always translate into uncapped by the Lions – ask Greenwood and Guscott?

Duhan van der Merwe (Scotland, uncapped)

The 6ft 4ins and 16st 10lbs South African Under-20s wing only qualified for Scotland in June after serving his three-year residency period north of the border with Richard Cockerill’s Edinburgh side.

The 6ft 4ins and 16st 10lbs South African Under-20s wing Duhan van der Merwe only qualified for Scotland in June

Scotland coach Gregor Townsend has since made it clear. An international call-up is a matter of when not if and don’t rule out a debut against Wales. This autumn in their delayed 2020 Six Nations Championship clash. A delight for stats anoraks in the Guinness PRO14.

Van der Merwe making 73 carries beating 61 defenders the most of any player in the tournament.He has made 27 clean breaks (tournament-leading), 756 run metres (tournament-leading) and has seven tries to his name (third in the competition).

He has time on his side to stake his claim for Lions selection. When the Six Nations resumes later this year. Another wing who could leave Gatland drooling given his pace, power and physical prowess.

He is then expected to return to see out the final two years of his four-year deal with the two-time Super Rugby champions. Maori All Blacks and Bay of Plenty coach Clayton MacMillan signing a one-year contract to fill the void left by Gatland next season.

Should the COVID-19 pandemic, which continues to wreak havoc in South Africa, force the cancellation of the tour to the Republic. Gatland said he would relish the opportunity to return to the Chiefs.

The Lions tour was given the go-ahead three weeks ago. This allows some “certainty” for the multitude of fans expected to travel from the United Kingdom.

There are over half a million coronavirus cases in South Africa. There is plenty of uncertainty about the feasibility of the eight-match tour. Tour is scheduled to kick-off against the Stormers in Cape Town on July 3.

“It’s something we haven’t talked about. I’d have to do it for free, probably, I won’t get paid,” Gatland said when asked on Friday if he would like to stay involved in the Chiefs’ plans next season if the Lions tour is called off.

But absolutely. In these last seven or eight weeks, I’ve learnt a lot about the players. What sort of things you’d do differently, what things you would continue with. Working with the other coaches, hopefully, the things that we’ve learnt collectively will be beneficial for next year.

“So [if he’s with the Lions] it’s going to be a challenge. Would I like that continuity? I would. But we’re still day by day and we’re seeing what’s going to be happening in that space going forward.”

Gatland will head to the UK early next month ahead of the 2020-21 domestic season

Gatland told the Will Greenwood podcast: “I’ve spoken to Stuart and we’ve had a couple of conversations

You must show some respect for Stuart. He got done with England, at that point he’s disappeared and he’s done some expert development. There’s no uncertainty what he’s done and the effect that he’s had since his time with Leinster.

He’d state that he’s certainly improved as a mentor and I have a gigantic measure of regard for him.We met before the last visit and he addressed me about his sentiments on the Leinster players and the Irish players. He gave me knowledge into them and I valued that.

“He’s one person that I’ve spoken to and had a couple of conversations with him, but there are many other people that I’ll be looking to talk to.”

Gatland also gave assurances about Saracens players. Players who ply their trade in English rugby’s second tier next season will not be disadvantaged in Lions tour selection.

“It’s not as if those players aren’t experienced or haven’t achieved at the highest level,” he said.

Furthermore, a great deal of them who have been engaged with England or been on past Lions visits have been especially at the head of the game.

“So I don’t have any concerns and worries about what state they’re going to be in, because I think they’re going to get enough top-level rugby before the tour.”

Leicester head coach Steve Borthwick has not discussed going on British and Irish Lions tour

Borthwick went about as an associate to Warren Gatland in New Zealand in 2017, and the British and Irish Lions are because of visit South Africa the following summer. Rugby lovers can book their South Africa A Vs British And Irish Lions Tickets on discounted prices easily.

The 40-year-old previous England chief went about as an associate mentor to Warren Gatland on the Lions’ attracted arrangement with New Zealand 2017. In any case, when inquired as to whether he had any plans on another Lions visit the following summer, Borthwick demanded he has given the thought no idea.

Borthwick stated It’s never been referenced, never been referenced and it’s never entered my thoughts, to be completely forthright.

“I’m not one to give proclamations without having put any idea behind them. So I’ve not contemplated that, I’ve not put any idea to that whatsoever.”

Borthwick in the meantime vowed Leicester will “adjust and survive” after losing England focus Manu Tuilagi to Sale Sharks. Lions star Tuilagi headed a cast rundown of six senior players to leave Leicester after dismissing 25 percent wage cuts, due to the coronavirus emergency and pay top decreases.

Tuilagi has since finished paperwork available to be purchased until the finish of the 2020-21 season, leaving the club he joined as a youngster for one of Leicester’s immediate adversaries. Huge name signings like Fiji wing Nemani Nadolo are now ready.

The Tigers hope to advance under new lead trainer Borthwick, with stars like Matias Moroni, Kobus Van Wyk, and Kini Murimurivalu likewise enrolled. What’s more, Borthwick demanded the Tigers can adapt to Tuilagi’s misfortune in pushing towards another time.

“Conditions do change, conditions, things you’ve made arrangements for, do change,” said Borthwick.

Nobody could have anticipated this most recent couple of months, you return, even return to when I was training England during the Six Nations, and nobody might foresee toward the beginning of the Six Nations that we wouldn’t have the option to complete the competition, with what’s occurred.

So I think with any circumstance you get yourself, you adjust, you figure out how to adjust; figure out how to adjust and survive.

“We’ve made a few signings, the players we have here are striving to develop themselves, to help improve this group and take this group forward. Furthermore, that is the thing that we’ll keep on doing.”

Borthwick’s Leicester switch was affirmed in April, before he began work at Welford Road on July 1. The previous Saracens lock has just pledged to direct Leicester back to the top, with the Tigers at present grieving in the eleventh spot in the suspended Premiership’s table.

When tested on how rapidly Leicester can indeed be trying for flatware, however, Borthwick demanded he won’t yet be setting whenever confines on that modifying work.

“At present, we’re concentrating on the present time and place and what we can do in this circumstance,” said Borthwick.

We’ve made a beginning on and we’re attempting to set up what we need to do. We realize we are very brave to the crew that has occurred, and we are very brave increments that will be joining the crew at the appropriate time. What’s more, as we go we’ll be building this group going ahead.

As far as looking forward and causing objectives for that as we to go, I’m not going to stay here and do that.

“What I will do is a discussion about how we’re going to prepare, how we will set ourselves up. Furthermore, if we keep on doing that we’ll gain ground as a group.”

Itoje not ready to captain British and Irish Lions Lions claims former Saracens coach

While he’s a major devotee of the player, previous Saracens mentor Brendan Venter says he doesn’t trust Maro Itoje.He is not prepared to captain the British and Irish Lions in their visit through South Africa one year from now. Rugby lovers can book their South Africa A Vs British And Irish Lions Tickets on discounted prices easily.

Itoje is being tipped by numerous individuals to get approval from Warren Gatland to lead the visiting side. Yet Venter accepts the profoundly appraised England lock isn’t prepared for the job. Regardless of being a star of the 2017 visit through New Zealand.

In a top to bottom meeting with Planet Rugby’s David Skipper, the previous Springbok addressed the Lions captaincy. He said that while he thinks he has ‘gigantic potential’, the 2020 Itoje vintage was at this point to develop. By and by, I don’t think Maro is prepared to be that pioneer yet.

“I think he has gigantic potential, he’s a decent man.”

Itoje has shown up since his introduction appearance for Saracens in 2014. He began in each of the three Lions Tests against the All Blacks three years prior. Yet Venter accepts the 25-year-old is most appropriate adding to the group in different manners.

He has great qualities yet I figure it will be hard for him, and Maro’s way is adding to a group from multiple points of view. In the event that you take a youngster and anticipate that him should be a pioneer of the British and Irish Lions, I don’t know whether that bodes well.

“Be that as it may, you never know. He has one more year to create and no one can tell what will occur during that period.”

Owen Farrell:

Venter appears to support England commander Owen Farrell as skipper.

“Owen has been so fruitful – for Saracens and England – and he did well in New Zealand also with the British and Irish Lions (in 2017). Additionally, in light of the fact that he is so experienced, I think somebody like Owen would be a decent decision at long last at the same time, if Warren Gatland chooses to go with a greater part of players from Wales, it could be another person as chief.”

Gatland has just indicated that Itoje is driving the race for the pined for job. “Itoje is the name that keeps springing up,” said in a Rugby World meeting in June.

Warren Gatland:

He’s a savvy player and an astute man and has been amazingly effective in his vocation,’ said Gatland. ‘He would be in conflict as one of the potential outcomes as skipper.

‘It’s tied in with picking the crew and afterward saying who do we think will be commander material. Preferably, it’s someone who has originated from a group that has been entirely fruitful. The following inquiry is in the event that we were picking the Test group currently.

Is there a decent possibility this individual would make that Test group?’ Itoje is the name that keeps springing up,’ said Gatland. ‘You take a gander at that and go, well, there are some truly acceptable second columns around and he’s not awful. You have Courtney Lawes and George Kruis.

How’s Alun Wyn Jones going around then? There’s James Ryan. There’s no uncertainty about Itoje’s quality.

British and Irish Lions Tour – Chance Would Be a Good Thing

The British and Irish Lions have confirmed that their 2021 tour of South Africa will go ahead as planned. Whilst the news has been met with joy in England, Wales and Ireland, the atmosphere in Scotland is somewhat more sombre. Rugby lovers can book their South Africa A Vs British And Irish Lions Tickets on discounted prices easily.

It is perhaps an understatement to say that Scottish rugby fans have become disillusioned with the Lions in recent years, particularly under the stewardship of Warren Gatland. Gatland, who returns as coach next year, has only selected five Scottish players into his two original squads.

British and Irish Lions Tour Tickets - Chance Would Be a Good Thing
British and Irish Lions Tour – Chance Would Be a Good Thing

Further four players joining as injury/withdrawal replacements. Of the 44 players he has handed Test caps to, Richie Gray was the only Scot, and he only played for 13 minutes. It is understandable why so few Scottish players were included in the 2013 tour but in the run-up to the 2017 tour.

Scotland had beaten Gatland’s Wales and Ireland in the Six Nations almost made the semi-final of the World Cup two years prior and went on to beat Australia in Sydney. Yet Gatland picked fewer Scots in his original squad than in 2013. All things considered, there may be pressure on Gatland to increase support in Scotland for the Lions brand.

This has been struggling to find its place in the professional game and could be under further threat if a global rugby calendar is adopted. The simplest way to do this: pick more Scottish players. With that in mind, here are my favourites to tour with the Lions next year and their chance of touring.

Richie Gray was the only Scot, and he only played for 13 minutes

Dead Certs

Stuart Hogg

The only way Hogg will not be picked is if he is injured. On recent form, he is the best Full Back option at Gatland’s disposal. Moving swiftly along.

On recent form, Stuart Hogg is the best Full Back option at Gatland’s disposal

Hamish Watson

Gatland picked eight Back Row players in his original 2017 squad. Whilst this is an area of immense depth, Watson is probably the second-best Openside after Justin Tipuric. James Haskell and Mike Tindall selected him in their Test team on House of Rugby, showing how highly thought of he is.

High Chance

Rory Sutherland

Sutherland was the form Loosehead from the Six Nations. If I were picking the squad today I have no doubts that he would go. However, we are a year out and Sutherland has had his problems with injury. His chance rests on keeping his form high and injuries at bay.

Stuart McInally/Fraser Brown

I have had to group these two as they so often are for Scotland. Gatland picked three Hookers in his original 2017 squad. I believe Jamie George and Ken Owens are already on the plane.

This leaves one space free. The Irish Hookers are too young and inexperienced for me so I think it will be a shootout between these two but at least one of them is very likely to go.

50/50s

Finn Russell

Leaving Russell at home could be the final nail in the coffin for the Lions

It pains me to give Finn such a low chance. Maybe I am being too cynical but I think Gatland will stick with the three Fly Halves from 2017. Farrell and Sexton are highly likely to go and Gatland knows Biggar inside out. Russell’s falling out with Townsend won’t help much either.

Leaving Russell at home could be the final nail in the coffin for the Lions in Scotland so perhaps this may swing the balance in his favour.

Darcy Graham

The Prince of Hawick could easily join the King if he rebounds from his injury troubles and finds top form. Gatland took seven Back Three players in 2017. Three outright Wingers, one outright Full Back and Three players who can cover all three positions. Graham’s time covering Full Back for Edinburgh may give him the edge over players like Stockdale or Nowell should he hit top form.

Zander Fagerson

Tadgh Furlong and Kyle Sinckler are certainties to tour. This leaves one space open at Tighthead. Fagerson was quality during the Six Nations with the Scottish scrum matching up to the opposition. If Fagerson can keep this up he has every chance.

Outside Bets

Jonny Gray

Gray Jr. has been an excellent servant for Scotland over recent years, always putting a shift in defence. However, Second Row is the Lions strongest area and his lack of edge in the attack may not be enough to see him on the plane. Playing in Exeter could change this so watch this space.

British and Irish Lions Tour Tickets - Chance Would Be a Good Thing
Ali Price has a fight on his hands with Gareth Davies, Ben Youngs and John Cooney

Ali Price

Three scrum-halves were originally taken in 2017. Two places are likely to be filled by Tomos Williams and Connor Murray. Price has a fight on his hands with Gareth Davies, Ben Youngs and John Cooney but he has a chance to sneak in.

Jamie Ritchie

Unfortunately for Ritchie, who is an exceptional talent with an aggressive edge suited to playing the Springboks, the back row may just have to much depth. His inexperience at the top level will likely count against him and he may have to bide his time till 2025.

Dark Horses

Sam Johnson

With Hadleigh Parkes leaving Wales for Japan, there are few specialists Inside Centres to pick from. With Owen Farrell likely to be deployed at 10, only Bundee Aki remains as a specialist 12. Sam Johnson could find his way on to the tour if he hits form.

Duhan van der Merwe

Who better to take on a team of huge, hulking South Africans than your very own huge, hulking South African. Duhan has been immense for Edinburgh over the past three seasons and if he carries that form into a Scotland shirt, he has the potential to be a Test starter.

Shock lapses prediction in odds on British and Irish Lions squad that punters are backing

Britain players look set to overwhelm Warren Gatland’s British and Irish Lions choice, at any rate as indicated by the wagering chances of one bookmaker and their punters. Rugby lovers can book their South Africa A Vs British And Irish Lions Tickets on discounted prices easily.

Nine England players are top picks in their situations to be chosen for the visit, giving a brief look at what punters undertaking to be Gatland’s beginning Test fifteen. Bookmakers Boyle Sports opened the wagering and punters are unmistakably going for attempted and tried determinations.

England’s 9 Players:

Second to England’s nine players, with three beginning spots, is Ireland; with Conor Murray, Tadhg Furlong, and James Ryan making the Test XV. Grains oversee only two determinations, Jonathan Davies and Josh Adams, while Scotland got only one choice – Stuart Hogg at fullback.

The group is covered with bunches of dubious anticipated oversights. For instance, there additionally probably won’t be space for Racing 92’s Finn Russell on a visit, with the Scot fourth decision at 10 of every a group likely just to bring three out equal parts.

Punters are additionally going for the generally out of structure Conor Murray as most loved at scrumhalf, in front of Gareth Davies and Ben Youngs, while in-structure Ireland nine John Cooney is named in the fourth position.

Robbie Henshaw would likewise miss the visit, being simply fifth most loved among the focuses, a position where Gatland is probably going to pick four at the exceptionally most.

Structure Guinness Six Nations flanker Jamie Ritchie is just the ninth decision back column as per the chances, likely putting him outside a spot on the plane, with harmed Leinster backline Dan Leavy picked in front of him in the eighth. Ritchie made Lions master Ian McGeehan’s beginning Test fifteen at six, as it occurs.

Courtney Lawes, who can play both second and ‘third line’, would likewise miss the plane per the wagering, as would Scotland’s Jonny Gray, an unfortunate non-attendant from the 2017 visit. They are picked at sixth and fifth individually.

Once more, there’s a bad situation for Scot Rory Sutherland, seemingly the Six Nations structure prop. The loosehead is the ninth decision prop and fifth decision loosehead. His sly accomplice, tighthead Zander Fagerson, is put at tenth in general.

Ken Owens:

At hooker, there’s no room on a visit for Ken Owens, who set forth, notwithstanding being chosen by Gatland for Wales on more than 70 events.

Ian McGeechan also announces his British and Irish Lions Squad

At fullback Leigh Halfpenny, the British and Irish Lions robust at 15, likewise looks almost certain to be precluded as a 10/1 since quite a while ago shot in the eighteenth spot in the rundown of wings and fullbacks. There’s (ideally) a lot of rugby to be played among at that point and now, everything is still to play for.

Lions XV top choices: Stuart Hogg (Scotland); Jonny May (England), Jonathan Davies (Wales), Manu Tuilagi (England), Josh Adams (Wales); Owen Farrell (England), Conor Murray (Ireland); Mako Vunipola (England).

Jamie George of England, Tadhg Furlong (Ireland), Maro Itoje (England), James Ryan (Ireland), Sam Underhill (England), Tom Curry (England), Billy Vunipola (England).
