WATCH: British & Irish Lions team announcement at midday

Watch the unveiling of the 2017 British & Irish Lions squad by Tour manager John Spencer and the announcement of the captain for the Tour by Tour Manager Warren Gatland.

The below video should start streaming at 12pm today.

The likes of Conor Murray and CJ Stander are nearly guaranteed for the team selection with locals hoping to see Sean O’Brien get another run with the Lions. Whatever way Warren Gatland names his squad for the New Zealand tour, there will be big name casualties and no doubt a few surprises in there for good measure.

Story developing.
