England's Spencer to manage 2017 Lions

LONDON (AP) Former England captain John Spencer will manage the British and Irish Lions on their 2017 rugby tour of New Zealand.

The Lions announced the move on Wednesday, along with former Ireland captain Tom Grace as chairman of the board, replacing Gerald Davies.

Former center Spencer was capped 14 times by England from 1969-71, and toured New Zealand with the 1971 Lions, the only Lions side to win their series against the All Blacks.
