Warren Gatland Names Lions Team For The Final Test Against The All Blacks

Warren Gatland Names Lions Team For The Final Test Against The All Blacks
By Gavin Cooney

We're at the stage that the tourists will measure the countdown to their shot at rugby immortality in hours, and those hours will seem long and torturous for 23 men, as the Lions Team for the third Test has been named by Warren Gatland.

Four years ago, Gatland infamously made a huge selection decision for the third Test against the Wallabies, in dropping Brian O'Driscoll for Jonathan Davies. Tonight...he's done nothing.

There are no changes to the Lions 23 for the third test. Here is the Lions team for the third Test in full.
