The announcement of Andy Farrell as the new head coach of the British and Irish Lions has been met with positive reactions. Farrell, who currently serves as the head coach of Ireland, will lead the team during the 2025 series in Australia, replacing Warren Gatland. While Farrell has previous experience with the Lions as an assistant coach in 2013 and 2017, this will be his first time as the main coach. 

The 48-year-old will aim to replicate their previous success against the Wallabies in 2025. Farrell expressed his delight at being selected for the role, stating that it meant the world to him. He acknowledged the support of the Irish Rugby Football Union (IRFU) and assured that he would give both his roles the attention they deserve.

Discussions have also arisen regarding potential assistant coaches, with France's Shaun Edwards being a popular choice among supporters.
