British & Irish Lions against All Blacks

The tourists will take on world champs at Eden Park & they have to better themselves if they want even a chance in this series.

The venue

Rotorua

 

Team Lions

After 4 tour games, it is quite clear how Warren Gatland & his coaching staff will go in terms of Test squad selection.

For us, 3 Irishmen who are Tadhg Furlong, Peter O’Mahony & Conor Murray will play in the Test 15.

Now they prepare for selecting the best 15 for the game against the Maori All Blacks in Rotorua on Saturday.

Furlong will once more start at tight-head & O’Mahony looks ready for another stint in the No.6 jersey.

Maro Itoje could be a blindside option with Courtney Lawes’ injury & another middling game from Alun Wyn Jones will now see him feature next to George Kruis.

Murray was excellent verses the Crusaders & is the Test Lions scrumhalf in the waiting.

Against All Blacks team

We expect Gatland to make Saturday’s game as the chance to check out Johnny Sexton & Owen Farrell at 10/12.

Ben Te’o having to be satisfied with himself with a bench role although having a decent start on the tour.

Further, Jack McGrath & CJ Stander featured verses the Highlanders but did nothing special to keep the in starting.

If it stays that way, the players will hope for at least 30 minutes to make some impact in the match.

The huge casualty here could be Sean O’Brien.

If the Leinster flanker was to lose out to captain Sam Warburton which we believe will happen then Stander can probably edge him out for that bench slot.

The team seems to be in the format of 6 English, 5 Welsh and 4 Irish. 4 Isish also on the bench with McGrath, O’Brien, Te’o & Dan Cole.
