Sam is the man to lead the Lions
Despite being sent off in the World Cup semi-final, William Hill rate the Wales Captain Sam Warburton their 13/8 favourite to lead the 2013 Lions tour with Brian O'Driscoll 9/4 and Paul O'Connell 3/1.
"Sam was arguably one of the best players in the tournament and we are convinced that he would make a great lions Captain, but he will face stiff competition from the Irish duo Brian O'Driscoll & Paul O'Connell," said Hill's spokesman Rupert Adams.
