British and Irish Lions 2017 team if they were to face the All Blacks tomorrow

Cant have too many arguments based purely on the first three rounds of the championship, although given Irish dominance so far you'd expect a greener hue to the team. Peter O'Mahony and Rory Best should feel particularly hard done by.

If I were picking a Lions Team in the morning NOT based purely on the last three games it would be:

15: Mike Brown
14: Tommy Bowe
13: Jonathan Joseph
12: Jamie Roberts (Although Henshaw is gaining ground on him fast)
11: George North
10: Jonny Sexton
9: Conor Murray
8: Jamie Heaslip
7: Sam Warburton (Tightest slot on the team between Warburton, SOB and Robshaw)
6: Peter O'Mahony
5: Alun Wyn Jones
4: Paul O'Connell (Sadly, won't be around for the actual tour)
3: Dan Cole
2: Rory Best
1: Cian Healy

16: Joe Marler
17: Dylan Hartley
18: Mike Ross
19: Richie Gray
20: Sean O'Brien
21: Ben Youngs
22: George Ford
23: Robbie Henshaw

Another Thomond Park miracle, I think they've seen more than Nazareth at this stage.

Check out the audio clip from the Irish radio commentary below. Michael Corcoran absolutely loses the plot!

That was the World Cup final right there. I reckon next week is just going to be an 80 minute victory lap for the ABs.
