Warren Gatland has named his first British and Irish Lions team, to play the Barbarians this Saturday in Hong Kong. The game kicks off at 12.30 GMT.
Ireland lock Paul O’Connell will captain the team in Saturday’s game.
O’Connell, who led the Lions in their last game in South Africa in 2009, will lead a side that contains all three Scottish tourists, eleven Welshman, five Irishmen and four Englishmen.
Lions coach Warren Gatland has rested tour captain Sam Warburton following a knock to his knee received in training and O’Connell is one of six former Lions in the squad.
He joins Adam Jones, Mike Phillips, Jamie Roberts, Alun Wyn Jones and Jamie Heaslip, all of whom played in the opening game four years ago.
“I’m really excited by the first selection of the tour,” said Gatland.
“Naturally it comprises largely those players not involved in last weekend’s Aviva Premiership and PRO12 finals and we’ve a lot of players making their debuts for the Lions.
“At the same time we have a hard core of experience with the six former Lions sharing 430 caps between them and 19 Lions Tests.
“There are also some proven combinations such as the Welsh centre pairing and back row.
“Some of the boys who played last weekend are on the bench as cover and generally everyone in the camp is raring to go.”
