WARREN GATLAND WILL name the 2017 Lions squad tomorrow, but who do you think will make the cut?

Looking at the original squad announcements from tours in the professional era, the scales are tipped pretty heavily in England’s favour when it comes to player selection. 73 English players have been included, compared to just 17 Scots.

Scotland are also the only country to not provide a captain in those five tours.

But what are your predictions for tomorrow’s announcement? Who should and shouldn’t be on that plane to New Zealand?
