Tadhg Furlong, Tadhg Beirne and Jack Conan will all start for the Lions tomorrow, among 13 changes to the side for tomorrow's repeat game against the Sharks in Pretoria.

Furlong and Conan come into the starting team having been second-half replacements for the 54-7 win on Wednesday, while Tadhg Beirne returns to the side after being withdrawn from contention one hour before kickoff.

Beirne was among eight of Wednesday's matchday 23 to have been pulled out of the squad, after multiple positive Covid-19 drew with them several close contacts.

However, Saturday's game against the Sharks looks set to go ahead with the Lions reporting a clean bill of health in their latest round of PCR tests.

Conor Murray will also be set to make his first appearance since being named tour captain if he comes off the subs bench tomorrow at Loftus Versfeld, while England's Jamie George will captain the team from hooker.

You can hear LIVE commentary of the Lions v The Sharks from 5pm on this Saturday's Off the Ball, available on Newstalk and the OTB Sports app.
