After months of speculation, the time has finally arrived for Warren Gatland to name his Lions squad to tour New Zealand this summer.

The selection is set to be announced by Lions manager John Spencer at noon, and you can watch it live in the video below from 12pm. After a lengthy selection process, it is thought that Ireland could have over ten players included in the touring party.

One suspected casualty is England captain Dylan Hartley, who is expected to be left at home along with team-mates Joe Launchbury and Jonathan Joseph.

Gatland is also being tipped to call upon Wales duo Jamie Roberts and Leigh Halfpenny, who many expected to miss out after indifferent seasons.
