Here’s What The Lions Test Team Probably Looks Like Right Now

The Lions face the Crusaders this weekend, hoping to bounce back from a disappointing loss to the Blues.

Touring New Zealand was never going to be easy for Warren Gatland’s Lions, but no one really thought it would be this hard. A narrow win over the Provincial Barbarians was followed up by a loss to the Blues, leaving the Lions in a state of panic.

While there’s only two games played so far, and improvements can be seen, facing the All Blacks is a different ball game. As things stand, the Lions are facing another 3-0 whitewash, unless they can show some serious improvement this weekend.

Here’s what we reckon the Test team looks like at the moment. Any chance?
