Warren Gatland Lions Training NZ Tour 2017

Warren Gatland named an unchanged side from last weekends comeback, which explains the two day break following the win in Wellington; whilst his opposite number Steve Hansen has made changes, one being the predicted inclusion of Jordie Barrett.
Gatland has said to his side that he wants them to make history by getting a second series win ever in New Zealand, stating; “You get those moments in your life and you don’t want those moments to pass you by and that’s what big occasions and big sporting events are about.”
With the changes in the All Blacks side, and their determination to not go defeated, it is hard to say who will come out victorious at Eden Park.
