Warren Gatland led the British and Irish Lions to a 2-1 series win over Australia in 2013

On Wednesday, coach Warren Gatland selected his Lions XV for Saturday’s first Test against New Zealand.

Over the last 36 hours, you have been having your say.

Using the BBC’s selection list, fans picked the team that they thought stood the best chance of undoing the back-to-back world champion All Blacks.

And, based on the data as of 08:00 BST on Friday, there have been some differences of opinion between the coach and the popular vote.

The most marked difference was in the second row.
