British and Irish Lions

Rugby U


Here are the teams then for this morning's clash!


Morning everyone, game two for the British and Irish Lions and the first of the Super Rugby franchises for them to face. It's Eden Park today and the Blues, Rob Sutton here for the coverage!

The Lions made an underwhelming start to their tour on Saturday with a 13-7 win over the Provincial Barbarians, Warren Gatland has responded by making 15 changes to the side for today's game with 11 players making their Lions debut.

This is a major match for the Blues, they missed out on a tour game in 2005 so have never faced the Lions before, Sonny Bill Williams their headline player.

Lions team led out today by Ken Owens.

2013 the last time the Blues lost at home to a non-New Zealand side, this is a proper test for the Lions.

The Blues have performed their Haka and we are just about to set to go.

And Dan Biggar gets us underway.

1- Webb goes down the short side to Stander and the Lions are in the 22 with the first wave of attack.

3- 16 phases of possession from the Lions comes to nothing, terrific defence from the Blues but Haskell pinged for holding on.
