WARREN GATLAND FACES SELECTION DILEMMA AHEAD OF SATURDAY’S TEST

British and Irish Lions will on Saturday start off their first Test game against the All Blacks in Auckland.

However, this might be an easier sail through than the dilemma Lions boss, Warren Gatland is currently facing concerning the players that would make up his squad for the game.

His toughest call will see him make a decision on whether to choose Elliot Daly or George North.

North, who plays at wing position for Waleswas the biggest weapon for Gatland during the Lions last tour back in 2013.
The tour saw him terrorizing Australia and scoring tries as the Lions emerged victors in both Test.

Unfortunately, this trip has had nothing like that from North and this puts Gatland at a dilemma.

To go with his instinct would see the Kiwi coach keeping faith with the 6ft 4in Northampton Saints juggernaut for the first of the three Tests.
