Lawes back in Lions red on Tuesday

Monday, June 19, 2017

Courtney Lawes has been named in the starting line-up for the British and Irish Lions' final warm-up game with the Chiefs this Tuesday.

The Saintsman - who has impressed when given the chance in New Zealand - left the field with a worrying looking knock a week ago against the Highlanders, but has recovered fully to take his place in the second row just four days before the first Test with the All Blacks.

The game in Hamilton, which kicks off at 8:35am, is being shown live on Sky Sports.
