The big news for the Lions is that Alun Wyn Jones will return to the tournament and serve as a substitute. He will play today and is likely to replace Adam Beard, the tour’s substitute, who formed a huge starting combination with Johnny Hill in the boiler room.
Elsewhere, Marcus Smith (Marcus Smith) spent quite a month: the Premier League champion, England tried to score for the first time, followed by the Lions call on the same day, now the Lions start. The dream thing, and his partnership with Ali Price has a lot of potential fashion, jazz and jazz jazz.
Stormers is a cold but talented costume. Pieter-Steph’s brother Johan du Toit sat in the back row with Nama Xaba, a promising scavenger with a bright future. Former Premier League players Tim Sveil and Juan De Jong are also on the team.
Speaking of the squad, the Stormers seem to name every adult male in Cape Town on their peculiarly abundant bench.
