With the Lions squad announcement drawing ever closer, speculation is sky-high as to which players will get the nod from Warren Gatland. With 37 seats on the plane to New Zealand available, there is going to be a wealth of talent left behind.

Former England flyhalf and Pundit Arena columnist Andy Goode has selected the squad he would bring, and there are a few contentious decisions.

Stuart Hogg is Scotland’s sole representative in the selection, as the likes of Jonny Gray, Finn Russell, Tommy Seymour and WP Nel all miss out.

Ireland have 12 in the side, but there is no room for Simon Zebo, Jared Payne nor Devin Toner. Iain Henderson is perhaps the Irish dark horse included.

Six Nations champions England also have 12 on the selection, as do Wales.

Stuart Hogg, Leigh Halfpenny, Liam Williams, George North, Elliot Daly, Anthony Watson
