Lions vs South Africa, Test Two: Who has the heavier pack? And more interesting stats

The British & irish Lions Lions will be able to wrap up the three-match series against the Springboks this weekend following their stunning 22-17 comeback victory in the first Test.

Warren Gatland: “As always, selection was incredibly tough. However, we’ve made the changes we think are the right calls for the weekend’s game.

“We know the Springboks will be hurting and they’ll throw everything at us on Saturday, but I think there’s plenty more to come from us too.

“We feel we can go up another level from where we were in the first Test and I would expect us to improve.

“It’s the biggest game on the Tour and we have to embrace the expectation that comes with it. As players and coaches, these are the games you want to be involved in.

“We’re relishing the opportunity to face the Springboks again on Saturday and potentially seal a series win.”
