Ian McGeechan will run fitness tests on two players on the morning of the British & Irish Lions opening game against a Royal XV to see if they are fit to play.
There are concerns over an insect bite to Wales No 8 Andy Powell's right hand that became infected. The other worry is over a calf strain sustained by Irish back row man Stephen Ferris.
Powell is due to start the game at the Royal Bafokeng Sports Palace at No 8, while Ferris is among the replacements. No replacements have been named by the Lions as yet should either Powell or Ferris fail their tests.
NZR Chief Executive Steve Tew is delighted that All Blacks Julian Savea and Brodie Retallick have signed new long-term contracts meaning they will be available to take on the British and Irish Lions in 2017.
Ryan Grant displayed some impressive singing skills while on tour with the British & Irish Lions. The full release of Lions Raw will be available on DVD and Blu-Ray from October 28th. Pre-order on Amazon.
