    Too much rugby to go to speculate now but without a doubt the squad will be stronger than 2017.
    Many youngsters have a chance this time as there will be a few high profile retirees post RWC.

    Henshaw made the current lion's team ahead of Williams, is younger and will be in the prime of his career vs Williams who will be past his, Henshaw will certainly make it ahead of Williams unless his form has fallen away. Williams is Welsh btw, can't see any other 12 starting unless Farrell is played there as there is not many good options.
    Manu Tuilagi has it in the bag now, injuries permitting of course.

    Murray Farrell
    North Davies Tuilagi Williams
    Hogg

    Decent back-division there for to lure Gatty in again

    Lotta rugby to be played between now and then though
    Predicting a Lions team four years out is a serious business Cowboy.

    Of course he will! He's the messiah!

    (One, two, three, all together now...)

    Sexton only made it when he was 22-23 and is now the prime 10 in Europe. JJ clearly has the talent, he just needs to brush up on afew other parts of his game. He sure has hell is a better call than those stupid calls for Cipriani
    To be included!

    1 . You're not going to get Itoje & Henderson, you'll get one or the other as they are pretty much the same. I know he only made his Ireland debut this year but I think J.Ryan is in with a serious shout. a 25 year old Ryan & 27 year old Itoje is a frightening prospect.

    2 Davies wont be 12 in 2021 and imo he will be done at this level, if he keeps developing I would say possibly Henshaw, cant see other stand out 12's unless im corrected unless Farrell is at 12 and someone else is at 10.
