Wales back-row Warburton, 28, who skippered the combined side on their victorious 2013 tour of Australia, becomes just the second man after England great Martin Johnson (1997 and 2001) to lead the Lions on two tours. In contrast, New Zealand-born hooker Hartley is the biggest casualty and the third successive England skipper to miss out on Lions selection after Steve Borthwick and Chris Robshaw. (visit) New Zealand-born Lions coach Warren Gatland -- who called it "the toughest tour" -- gave surprise call-ups to Ireland fullback Jared Payne -- also born in New Zealand -- England wing Jack Nowell and Wales back-row Ross Moriarty. Warburton stood down from the Wales captaincy this season and is currently out with a knee injury. But he is expected to be fit before the squad departs on May 29 for a tour that will feature a three-Test series against world champions New Zealand. "I had a dinner with all the other former captains last night when it sunk in, the enormity," said Warburton at a news conference after the squad was announced. "I found out last Thursday when Gats called. I was in a supermarket car park and didnat believe him at first." Warburton was the skipper and Gatland, again on secondment from his job as Wales boss, the coach when the Lions won 2-1 in Australia four years ago. "Sam is a great player, an outstanding leader and a winning Lions captain," said Gatland. "We believe that Sam's experience and leadership qualities make him an obvious choice as captain." While Hartley was left out, rival England hooker Jamie George was included, along with Ireland captain Rory Best and Wales's Ken Owens. In the backs, New Zealand-born Ben Te'o, the England centre, provides a powerful midfield option, with Ireland fly-half Jonathan Sexton set to orchestrate the attack.
