Picking A Lions Team To Take On The Highlanders On Tuesday

Back on track.

The Lions got their tour back on track this morning, but with games coming thick and fast, today’s win will be quickly forgotten.

Gatland’s men take on the Highlanders in just three days, hoping to secure two wins on the bounce for the first time this summer as the Test series looms.

A date with the New Zealand Maori awaits four days after that, so expect Gatland to ring the changes for Tuesday’s clash.

Here’s how we reckon his side might line out.

Possible Lions XV

1. Joe Marler
2. Rory Best
3. Kyle Sinckler
4. Iain Henderson
5. Courtney Lawes
6. James Haskell
7. Sam Warburton (c)
8. Ross Moriarty
9. Rhys Webb
10. Dan Biggar
11. Jack Nowell
12. Robbie Henshaw
13. Jonathan Davies/Joseph
14. Tommy Seymour
15. Leigh Halfpenny

16. Ken Owens
17. Jack McGrath
18. Dan Cole
19. George Kruis
20. Justin Tipuric
21. Conor Murray/Greig Laidlaw
