Maro Itoje Talks to Sky Sports About Being the First Black Captain of the Lions Tour?

Maro Itoje was talking to  Sky Sports after their big win against the Italians on Saturday afternoon in the early kick-off, but the Italians did make it harder for England at Twickenham than France the week before in Rome.

“Yeah, I think Anthony Watson will make a great captain!” Maro Itoje joked.

“I do acknowledge how significant an event like that would be if it does happen but I guess fate will decide.”

“My ambition is to do whatever it is to make my team win. I feel if you campaign or clamour for the role of captain, you are almost wanting it for the wrong reasons.

“I’ve had great captains and for me, it’s been a blessing to be around them because I think being around those have made me a better leader and learn things about myself and be a better player,” Itoje commented.

Will we get a Lions tours this summer?
