BT Sport released a graphic after Warren Gatland's Lions squad announcement but it was quickly deleted after a glaring error was pointed out.

The graphic showed the breakdown of the 41 players by country but they only included six of the nine Ulster counties for Ireland.

Among the Twitter users to point out the omission of Munster, Leinster and Connacht, as well as counties Donegal, Monaghan and Cavan, was the IRFU's official Twitter account.

The message was promptly deleted but someone is sitting nervously at their desk after that error.
