Former England captain Martin Johnson believes that Wales lock Alun Wyn Jones should be selected as the Lions skipper for the summer tour of Australia.
Johnson, who has led the Lions twice, has claimed that Jones has the experience to deal with the pressure that comes with the position.
"He's played a lot of games, he's done it, he has been out there before with the Lions in '09, so I think he's in the frame," Johnson told Sky Sports News. "I hear a lot of good things about him. I was in a pretty similar situation in 1997. Phil de Glanville was England captain and I'd only captained my club about 15 times.
"The Lions captaincy has this big aura about it and is a great thing to do, to do well. But ultimately I would rather just play, and win a series, than be captain in a losing series."
"Sam Warburton wasn't even in the Welsh team for a while but he handled himself pretty well in a tricky situation and came back and played well."
It is understood that Sam Warburton is the favourite for the role.
