The Lions have named a strong side, with starts for flyhalf Owen Farrell and prop Marko Vunipola.
He is an unusual but brilliant mix, and his combination with Conor Murray, who was absolutely on top of his game at scrum-half, is going to be the beating heart of the Lions.
For the first time in 15 games this year, or 1,200 minutes of competitive rugby, the Crusaders know how it feels to lose. I am not convinced yet.

"His preparation and work to prepare people for games is second to none". We are creating opportunities we just need to finish off those chances.
The Lions celebrated the mini-win just the way hooker George vowed they would keep doing, ahead of the clash.
"But as is the nature of test rugby I'm sure a number of them will get an opportunity, if not in this series, then throughout the season".
All night he kept putting boot to ball and on each occasion it generated better field position for his team. This game had the little bit of niggle that some believe has been missing for the last few games. It is a big ask but it is not impossible. On the other side, the Lions looked confident and adventurous... until they reached the 22m line.
The All Blacks get together in camp for the first time this week.
