RORY SUTHERLAND has been added to the British & Irish Lions starting XV for this evening’s first Test against South Africa in Cape Town [kick-off 5pm BST].
He replaces Wyn Jones at loose-head prop. The Welshman has been ruled out of the match with a minor shoulder injury picked up in training on Thursday.
Mako Vunipola has been added the bench.
“It’s really bad luck for Wyn and we all feel for him missing out on tonight’s game,” said Lions head coach Warren Gatland.
“However, we’re confident he’ll be back in training next week and have no plans to bring in anyone else at this stage.”
