The British and Irish Lions will look to lay down an early marker when they face South Africa in the first of three massive Test matches.
Warren Gatland’s side take on the Springboks on Saturday at Cape Town Stadium.
They have lost just once on their tour so far, that coming against a South Africa ‘A’ side that proved their physical strength against the Lions.
Gatland has opted for experience in his starting XV for the opening Test, with Alun Wyn Jones returning from injury to skipper the side.
