Revised Lions Tour fixtures sees new opponent added and three venues axed

Warren Gatland’s side will start off their tour games on July 3 with a game against the Lions, before taking on the Sharks on July 7 in a midweek fixture.

Next up are the Bulls, on July 10, before another midweek game against South Africa ‘A’. The final chance players have to impress, in terms of Test selection, is a July 17 game with the Stormers.

There are no midweek games once the Test Series commences, with the first game in Cape Town and the final two back in Johannesburg.
