“It is not 100% final at this time that the players will not be released, there are still some negotiations that will continue between now and then,” Gatland told reporters Wednesday.

But if England has a great Six Nations, it could mean that a third of the players on the Lions team are missing for the Japan game and a camp in Wales last week.

“We want to take the best players on the road, but the reality is that it could affect the national team. If you end up with a 50-50 call to a player, players who may be in camp in Wales and the Japan game could get the go-ahead on someone who is not available until the week before the first game in South Africa.”

Gatland has suggested that England’s players should apply for the release of their clubs.

“Hopefully common sense prevails, to go on a Lions tour and the interest it creates in and out of the sport, you can come back as a superstar. Maybe the players need to express their opinion on that, I think it would be quite powerful,” he said.

British lions tour: Gatland predicts Boks will be underdone

Warren Gatland says the decision to withdraw the Boks from the Rugby Championship could leave them ‘underdone’ for the incoming British & Irish Lions tour next year.

SA Rugby recently decided against having the Springboks participate in this year’s revised Rugby Championship, which will be held in Australia, and Gatland believes it is a risky call.

‘It could end up being 20 months between their last game and the first Lions Test,’ Gatland told the BBC.

‘So, they may be underdone, and it will be disappointing from my perspective because I won’t get a chance maybe to see them play.’

Gatland will lead the Lions for a third time on their tour of South Africa. In a condensed tour, starting on 3 July 2021, the Lions will play three Tests against the Springboks as part of an eight-match schedule.

The 57-year-old New Zealander sympathized with South Africa’s director of rugby, Rassie Erasmus.

‘Those are the kind of the times we are in at the moment. I can understand from Rassie’s point of view, they hadn’t had a lot of domestic rugby, so they felt they were going down to Australia being undercooked and understandably not wanting to expose them.

‘They talked about injury risk, I am not too sure that was the case, but that’s their prerogative and they felt they needed more rugby.

‘But what they are going to do – internally or externally – ahead of the Lions, I am not too sure, so it is a bit of a wait and sees.’
