Picking a British & Irish Lions Squad If There Was a 2014 Tour

The British and Irish Lions tour is a momentous occasion of any rugby professional's career, and one which some might wish came more regularly than its current four-year cycle.

However, while it may be no enviable task, we've decided to step into Warren Gatland's shoes for a brief spell, piecing together a theoretical 37-man squad which could tour this summer.

For the sake of precision, we've been as thorough as possible with injuries and a player's real-time health, taking into account the amount of time they'd have to get match fit if making their return to health, and if they're currently ruled out for this summer, they aren't available for selection.

Prominence within the national setups will encourage one's inclusion in the squad, with a particular significance placed on a player's performances at the Six Nations, as well as in league and cup competition.
