Saracens trio Owen Farrell, Mako Vunipola and Matt Stevens are all included in the British & Irish Lions squad, announced today.

Stevens was the surprise inclusion in the tour party that will go to Australia this summer while Farrell was picked ahead of Jonny Wilkinson who orchestrated Sarries' exit from the Heineken Cup last weekend.

Vunipola completed the Saracens contingent as other hopefuls including Chris Ashton, Alex Goode and Kelly Brown all missed out.
