Take a look at who the bookies’ odds suggest will play for the British & Irish Lions in the Test series against the Springboks.
A couple of months out from the all-important Lions tour, bookies have given odds on how the elite composite team is likely to shape up in the three-Test series against the Boks.
Interestingly, South African-born trio CJ Stander, Duhan van der Merwe and WP Nel, who all had a case to be made for selection, miss the cut.
Other big names who’ve fallen out of favour, according to the bookies, are lock James Ryan, centre Garry Ringrose, hooker Jamie George, flyhalf Finn Russell and flank Sam Underhill.
Lions XV according to the odds: 15 Stuart Hogg, 14 Jonny May, 13 Robbie Henshaw, 12 Jonathan Davies, 11 Josh Adams, 10 Owen Farrell, 9 Conor Murray, 8 Taulupe Faletau, 7 Hamish Watson, 6 Tom Curry, 5 Alun Wyn Jones, 4 Maro Itoje, 3 Tadhg Furlong, 2 Ken Owens, 1 Wyn Jones.
