So there it is, the British & Irish Lions squad for 2021 is a 37-man affair, rather than the 36 as originally planned. Alun Wyn Jones of Wales is captain. Notable absentees include the England prop Kyle Sinckler, Wales back-rower Josh Navidi, Ireland’s Garry Ringrose, England’s Henry Slade and the Welsh stalwart Jonathan Davies, who played such an integral role on the tours in 2013 and 2017. Notable inclusions are Bundee Aki, the Ireland centre, and Sam Simmonds, the Exeter No 8 who has been an England exile for a couple of years now.

The full squad is below, again: thank you for reading and for commenting, and good luck to all the players selected. Bye for now.
