Warren Gatland has named his Lions team for this weekend’s opening tour game with the Provincial Barbarians.
The Lions arrived in New Zealand today and in just three days will take on a Provincial Barbarian XV in their opening game. As expected Gatland has picked the bulk of his squad from the players available to him at the first week of camp in Cardiff.
Sam Warburton makes his return and captains the side, while Johnny Sexton starts at ten over Dan Biggar.
