Highlanders team News :- The Dunedin-based Highlanders have selected only three current All Blacks in their lineup for the match against the British and Irish Lions.
Fly-half Lima Sopoaga, centre Malakai Fekitoa and winger Waisake Naholo have been given dispensations by the All Blacks to play in the match as all are likely to be bench players at best in the first test at Auckland on June 24.
Former All Blacks hooker Liam Coltman is also included in the Highlanders’ starting lineup but scrum-half Aaron Smith and full-back Ben Smith, expected to start for the All Blacks against the Lions, are not available.
Elliot Dixon, Ash Dixon, Joe Wheeler, Rob Thompson and Tom Franklin will miss the match because they are due to play for the New Zealand Maori against the Lions on Saturday.
Otago Highlanders side to face the Lions: Richard Buckman, Waisake Naholo, Malakai Fekitoa, Teihorangi Walden, 11-Tevita Li, Lima Sopoaga, Kayne Hammington, Luke Whitelock (captain), Gareth Evans, Dillon Hunt, Jackson Hemopo, Alex Ainley, Siate Tokolahi, Liam Coltman, Daniel Lienert-Brown.
Replacements: Greg Pleasants-Tate, Aki Seiuli, Siosuia Halanukonuka, Josh Dickson, Jimmy Lentjes, Josh Renton, Marty Banks, Patrick Osborne.
British and Irish Lions News :- British and Irish Lions captain Sam Warburton has been named in a much-changed side to face Highlanders in the fourth match of the tour in Dunedin, the Welsh back rower returning to action after missing the last two contests.
Warburton was involved in the unconvincing, tour-opening win over a Provincial Barbarians side but was not selected for the subsequent loss to the Auckland Blues or the 12-3 victory over the Canterbury Crusaders.
Lions coach Warren Gatland named a completely new starting 15 on Sunday and the New Zealander can expect another bruising test of his side’s credentials with the three-match series against the All Blacks looming on the horizon.
The Highlanders may only be ranked fourth of the five New Zealand franchises in this year’s tournament but the 2015 Super Rugby champions have won 10 of their 14 matches and are assured of at least a playoff berth.
British & Irish Lions: J Payne (Ireland), J Nowell (England), J Joseph (England), R Henshaw (Ireland), T Seymour (Scotland), D Biggar (Wales), R Webb (Wales), J Marler (England), R Best (Ireland), K Sinckler (England), C Lawes (England), I Henderson (Ireland), J Haskell (England), S Warburton (Wales, capt), CJ Stander (Ireland).
Replacements: K Owens (Wales), J McGrath (Ireland), D Cole (England), A W Jones (Wales), J Tipuric (Wales), G Laidlaw (Scotland), O Farrell (England), E Daly (England).
