Lions bring in Conor Murray, Chris Harris and Mako Vunipola for second Test
Ali Price, Rory Sutherland and Elliot Daly are the players to make way as the Lions look to seal a series victory over South Africa.

De British and Irish Lions have made three changes for Saturday’s second Test against South Africa after giving starts to Conor Murray Chris Harris og Mako Vunipola

Murray takes the scrum-half duties from Ali Price, who drops to the bench in a straight swap of roles from the series opener at Cape Town Stadium that saw the Lions emerge 22-17 winners.

Vunipola is rewarded for his impact off the bench in the first Test, which included a solid scrummaging performance, by getting the nod ahead of Rory Sutherland at loosehead prop.

Sutherland struggled at the set-piece and with Wyn Jones suffering from a shoulder problem, the Scotland front row is needed among the replacements.

The final adjustment to the XV that have placed the Lions on the brink of a first series victory over South Africa since 1997 is Harris’ promotion from outside the 23 to replace Elliot Daly in the centres.
