Sigma Lions vs. British & Irish Lions – Live!

Vatican judge orders cardinal and nine others to stand trial for alleged financial crimes

Warren Gatland made fourteen changes to the squad that beat Japan at Murrayfield with Stuart Hogg as the back row captain. There’s the Lions’ debut for Chris Harris, Hamish Watson, Louis Rees-Zammit and Jonny Hill, who recently arrived on tour.

The bench is also filled with those greeting the tour with Zander Fagerson, Gareth Davies, Luke Cowan-Dickie and Sam Simmonds all ready to join in as needed. Cowan-Dickie is a controversial selection after being cold-knocked out in the Premiership final last Saturday, but Lions coaches insist he has completed all return-to-play protocols.

The Sigma Lions send a young team, but there is talent especially up front and with hopeful Jordan Hendrikse.

Lions Sigma : EW Viljoen; Jamba Ulengo, Manuel Rass, Burger Odendaal, Rabz Maxwane; Jordan Hendrikse, Dillon Smit; Nathan McBeth, PJ Botha, Ruan Dreyer, Ruben Schoeman, Reinhard Nothnagel, Sbusiso Sangweni, Vincent Tshituka, Francke Horn (captain).

Substitutions: 16 Jaco Visagie, 17 Sti Sithole, 18 Carlu Sadie, 19 Ruhan Straeuli, 20 Emmanuel Tshituka, 21 Morne van den Berg, 22 Fred Zeilinga, 23 Dan Kriel.
