Finally we will be joined ‘virtually’ by members of the 2021 squad.

“To put on that Lions jersey is incredibly special,” said Gatland.

“I’ve been lucky enough to be on a number of Lions tours and seeing those players put the jersey on for the first time – you can see the pride in their faces.

“It’s about understanding what has come before you and the famous players who have worn the iconic jersey and those who will come after you. The Lions are regarded as the best of the best and this is the biggest challenge in rugby.

“Once you’ve been selected, once you’ve played for the Lions, that is something that can never ever be taken away from you.”
