'I wouldn't have taken this job on if I didn't think there are players with the ability to go to New Zealand and win. There's some real talent there at the moment, there's some pace, players with footwork, there's experience in the forward pack, there's some size as well and some real skill' - the words of Warren Gatland as he looks forward to coaching the 2017 British & Irish Lions squad.
