Second Test: New Zealand v British and Irish Lions
Venue: Westpac Stadium, Wellington Date: Saturday, 1 July Kick-off: 08:35 BST

British and Irish Lions captain Sam Warburton says Saturday’s second Test is the “biggest challenge” of his career. It may also be one of the most significant games in Lions history.

Having lost last week’s first Test in Auckland, this is – as defence coach Andy Farrell says – “do or die” for the tourists.

A heavy defeat for the Lions could call into question the very future of the concept, with English clubs dissatisfied at the current structure.
