Best to lead Lions versus Hurricanes


Ireland hooker Rory Best will captain the British and Irish Lions in their final midweek match on Tuesday against the Hurricanes.

Best also captained the Lions to a 34-10 win over the Chiefs four days before the first against the All Blacks. New Zealand won the Test 3015 at Eden Park last weekend to take a 1-0 lead in the three test series. The second Test is at Wellington on Saturday. Best will lead a team against the Hurricanes which features the same forward pack that played against the Chiefs and an unchanged pairing in the halves of Scotland scrumhalf Greig Laidlaw and Wales’ flyhalf Dan Biggar.
