Warren Gatland will reveal his British and Irish Lions squad for the daunting tour of New Zealand tonight, when talk in rugby clubs across the region will quickly switch from who will be on the plane to who is likely to be in the test team.

Gatland who oversaw the 2‑1 series victory over Australia four years ago is tipped to select Welsh flanker Sam Warburton as captain for the second time an honour previously bestowed only on England's Martin Johnson.

Warburton captained the team in the first two tests against Australia in 2013 but missed the decisive third through injury with fellow Welshman Alun Wyn Jones stepping in.
