Warren Gatland has named his British and Irish Lions side today for the rematch with the Sharks on Saturday after fresh Covid tests.

England’s Jamie George captains the team as Conor Murray is named on the bench, but there are still three Irish players in the starting line up.

Tadhg Furlong and Tadhg Beirne will start the game, with Leinster’s Jack Conan lining out at eight.

Bath Rugby and England star Anthony Watson, is set to make his first start of the British and Irish Lions tour also.

The Lions’ original fixture against the Bulls was called off because of an outbreak of Covid in the hosts’ camp.
