Leading the way: Iain Henderson with Adam Beard during training in Johannesburg

As his incredible season brings further honour, Iain Henderson will be viewing the British and Irish Lions captaincy on Wednesday as a status of first among equals.

The Ulster star, who led out Ireland for a first time against France in the Six Nations earlier this year, is the man chosen by Warren Gatland to skipper the Lions against the Sharks in Johannesburg, describing his emotions as “excited” and “incredibly honoured.”
