Pick your British & Irish Lions XV for the All Blacks Test series

Warren Gatland's British & Irish Lions squad has departed for New Zealand, and a 10-match tour that has been dubbed the toughest ever attempted by the famous tourists.

Over the next four weeks, Gatland will give his 41-man touring party the game time they need as he finalises his plans for the first Test in Auckland on June 24.

The coach has a squad packed full of talent but who do YOU think should be given most time to shine in New Zealand?

Simply click on the links below to rank the players by position and ahead of each tour game we will publish our ESPN Readers XV. It couldn't be simpler.


Hooker | Props | Second row | Back row

NOTE: Some players have been included in more than one position. If they are ranked high enough to earn selection in more than one position then they will be selected for the ESPN Readers XV in the position in which they have most votes.
