Lions Squad Predictions 2021

I'm sure you probably fed up of reading these now? However, there is that morbid curiosity constantly bringing you back to posts such as these, that inescapable urge to disagree with Celtic compatriot's on who they think would do a job down in Cape Town. Well, we feed off of that urge like the lowly bottom-feeders that we are, sipping from the tears of frustrated Rugby fans that we've accumulated over the last six months reviewing controversial international matches. To give the article some semblance of relativity, we will be comparing and contrasting our picks with who we believe Gatland will pick in May. Enjoy... Or don't, that won't stop this article from popping up in your feed an unnecessary amount of times.
