Commenting on the team selection Head Coach Ian McGeechan said, "As a squad the Lions still have everything to play for. The players know that the outcome of the Test series comes down to Saturday and they are determined to take the series to a decider in Johannesburg."
"There were many positives to come out of the First Test which we have built upon this week."
"We have made five changes to the starting XV but it will not change the way we want to play. Both teams will be better for the run last weekend and we know we will have to step up our performance to ensure that we again take the game to the opposition and are more accurate in taking our opportunities."
"The starting XV is an interesting one in that we have an all Welsh front row for an official Lions Test match for the first time since 1955. We also have an all-Irish back three. I am also delighted for Simon Shaw who will play in first Lions Test after three tours and 16 matches in the famous red shirt," added McGeechan.
