Here’s What The Lions Team Will Probably Be For The First Test

The Test arena awaits.

The wait is almost over as the Lions get set to take on the mighty All Blacks in Eden Park this weekend.

Gatland’s men have been questionable in the midweek games, but fired in the Saturday games when he fielded his strongest side. That team picked up two massive wins over the Crusaders and Maori All Blacks, and look set to be rewarded with Test jerseys on Saturday.

Here’s how we reckon the Test team will look.

15. Leigh Halfpenny
14. George North
13. Jonathan Davies
12. Owen Farrell
11. Anthony Watson
10. Johnny Sexton
9. Conor Murray

1. Mako Vunipola
2. Jamie George
3. Tadhg Furlong
4. George Kruis
5. Maro Itoje
6. Peter O’Mahony (c)
7. Sean O’Brien
8. Toby Faletau

Replacements:
16. Ken Owens
17. Jack McGrath
18. Kyle Sinckler
