‘Leaked’ Lions XV with Warren Gatland to make ‘minimum changes’

It’s being reported that Warren Gatland has resisted calls for wholesale changes to his Lions XV heading into the third and final test against South Africa.

Captain Alun Wyn Jones believed heads will roll after the Springboks’ 27-9 victory in the second Test in Cape Town.

“Everyone is aware that Gats [Warren Gatland] will make changes,” said Jones, adding he is “notorious” for it.

“There will probably be an opportunity for some and I have a feeling that people want to put it right.”

However, Gatland will likely make only four changes to his starting XV.
