British and Irish Lions captain Sam Warburton thrilled by Ross Moriarty's inclusion

The Australian may choose to rest the likes of Mike Brown, Chris Robshaw, George Ford, Joe Launchbury and Tom Wood, giving them a precious breather in a packed calendar.

Warburton stood down from the Wales captaincy this season and is now out with a knee injury.

Howley, in his role as interim Wales head coach, was involved with that decision, but he has no doubt about 28-year-old Warburton's leadership credentials.

"We will need to be able to play in different ways and change up our game and, when you look at the quality and experience we have in the squad, the options are mouthwatering".

The best thing that bonds teams is going through games with each other and going through the pressure of a match day and working hard for each other. He certainly leads by his actions.

Sam Warburton is set to be named captain for the second time, despite losing the Wales captaincy to Alun Wyn Jones, who is also set to be included in a strong group of locks.

He didn't ever believe he was a certain a selection as many suggested, he added.

Joseph was thought to have missed out due to Gatland's preference for the muscular gainline threat in midfield that has earned Ben Te'o, Robbie Henshaw and Jonathan Davies selection for the 10-fixture tour that culminates in three Tests against the All Blacks. You pick players who can do the job you want them to do, who play the style of game you want to play.

"I was in the gym, my phone was unlocked and they were all pretending it was "Gats" calling".

"They always do it". They had been messing with me for days.

Boarding for Eurostar trains to London was also suspended for a short time, according to an AFP journalist at the scene. The officers then kept the man at a distance with their weapons before making the arrest, Xinhua news agency reported.

"The boys have no standards".

"Whereas with New Zealand, any time we've been there with Ireland, it's a lot more hostile, everyone will know in the country what you're there for and you'll be in a gold fish bowl".

"These are guys I've played a lot of rugby with, grown up with, at the beginning of career watching them play and train, and now I'm fortunate to play and train alongside these world-class players".

"I've now got a sore jaw for all of the smiling I've been doing since the announcement. I think Hartley would have been an asset but I'm not picking the team".

"I'm pretty happy that our guys got some confidence beating Ireland in Ireland", he told New Zealand's Radio Sport. "You go through all those emotions together, and it brings you tighter".

"It's going to be incredibly tough, but it's a challenge I'm hugely excited by".

"I probably haven't produced that high level [in recent weeks] I produced a couple of years ago so I'm a bit fortunate".

"What was impressive, and when England beat them in 2012, the breakdowns were ferocious", said Warburton.

"So you look at Scottish teams over the last few years, Glasgow won (the Guinness PRO12) a few years back now but every clutch game we have played, we have maybe not shown what we can do".
