VOTE: Who would be in your British and Irish Lions XV for the second test against New Zealand?

VOTE: Who would you pick in your Lions XV for the second test?

Who should make British and Irish Lions starting line-up is a debate that divides friendships, families and nations… but now it’s time to have your say.

Saturday's highly-anticipated first test in Auckland saw the Lions taught a lesson by the brilliant All Blacks, with a sparkling British back line not doing enough to prevent a 30-15 loss.

Warren Gatland made a number of unexpected selections calls for that first test, but has hinted at more changes for Saturday's series-defining meeting in Wellington.

But who do you think should make the cut? Is there a spot for Maro Itoje in the first XV and could Jonny Sexton also make the XV this time? Have your say.

Loose Head Prop

Ireland's Jack McGrath was rock solid in the Six Nations, but Mako Vunipola had a solid showing in the first test. Will the Englishman keep his place?

Hooker

Jamie George's dynamism earned him the starting Lions berth, despite not yet ever starting a game for England. Could Ken Owens replace him for the second test, or did George do enough to remain first choice?

Tight Head Prop

Kyle Sinckler's rampaging running with ball in hand has seen him burst into contention alongside England's man-mountain Dan Cole and the revelation that is Tadhg Furlong (who excelled against the All Blacks in Chicago, lest we forget).

Second Row

One of the most competitive areas of selection to even make the tour, the second row continues to be an area of the team that splits opinion. Alun-Wyn Jones is one of the big leadership figures, but should he be in the team? As one of the form players on tour, could Courtney Lawes have forced his way into Gatland's plans, and is Maro Itoje going to get more game time?

Blindside Flanker

This is the big call for Gatland. Peter O'Mahony got the nod last weekend, but did he do enough?

Number Eight

Billy Vunipola's absence will be sorely missed, but in Taulupe Faletau, CJ Stander and James Haskell there are still some quality options at eight in the squad.

Scrum Half

Greig Laidlaw seems out of the running, but should it be the Irish or Welsh 9 who starts the second test?

Fly Half

The key decision-making position on the pitch has given Gatland some headaches on tour. Owen Farrell was given the nod at 10 for the first test, but Jonny Sexton opened up the game when he came on. Who takes the 10 jersey for the second test?

Inside Centre

Ben Te'o is the archetypal 'bolter' - barely an England player to a possible starting Lion. But could Gatland opt for a Farrell-Sexton pairing this time, or has he seen something in Robbie Henshaw that gives the Irishman the edge?

Full Back
