    So at 12pm on Wednesday Gatland will announce the squad that will take on the all blacks during the summer.

    What are you,re thoughts re squad, poss captain or any out of left field selections.

    For me I think Gatland will go with tried and trusted players, so that means some bloody good players missing this trip. Sam will more than likely be captain.

    If press reports that Launchberry will miss out are true that's a real shame

    Personally i'd take him but do we have a fair few 2nd rows to choose from.

    Totally agree and would not be a good call imo. He was brilliant in the six nations

    It'd be pretty mental not to take Launchbury and Joseph but I suppose there's always going to be big names missing out.

    True, and you suspect he will be on the next plane if not this one

    Presume Warburton will retain the captaincy.

    The schedule that the Lions have is so stupid that I wouldn't worry....about 10 players will go home injured and back ups called in. If Launchberry isn't named tomorrow, chances are he'll still be in NZ for the second test.
