The Western Force host the British & Irish Lions on Wednesday 5 June with kick-off at 11:00 UK time. For this occasion they have introduced a one off shirt:
The Lions have played in Perth before but not against the new Franchise so it should be a spectacular opening to the tour down under. The visitors have given full respect by picking a strong outfit, though this should be an easier run-out than the Reds on Saturday. The Western Force match is part of a week long festival of rugby in Western Australia.
For those of you who have not seen the Lions selection elsewhere it is the team for Wednesday:
British & Irish Lions
Leigh Halfpenny, Tommy Bowe, Brian O’Driscoll (captain), Manu Tuilagi, George North, Jonny Sexton, Conor Murray; Cian Healy, Rory Best, Dan Cole, Alun-Wyn Jones, Ian Evans, Tom Croft, Sean O’Brien, Jamie Heaslip.
Replacements: Tom Youngs, Mako Vunipola, Matt Stevens, Geoff Parling, Toby Faletau, Ben Youngs, Owen Farrell, Sean Maitland.
