It's the last Saturday game before the Test matches and we'll be showing the game live, with breakfast available from 8am.

The British and Irish Lions face an anxious wait over the fitness of fly-half Owen Farrell after he suffered a quadriceps injury in training.

Farrell had been named on the bench for the match against the Maori All Blacks on Saturday, but has now been replaced in the matchday squad by Dan Biggar.

Johnny Sexton starts at 10 in Rotorua (08:35 BST), with fellow Irishman Peter O'Mahony captaining from the flank.

Lions: L Halfpenny (Wales); A Watson (England), J Davies (Wales), B Te'o (England), G North (Wales); J Sexton, C Murray (both Ireland); M Vunipola, J George (both England), T Furlong (Ireland), M Itoje, G Kruis (both England), P O'Mahony (capt, Ireland), S O'Brien (Ireland), T Faletau (Wales).

Replacements: K Owens (Wales), J McGrath (Ireland), K Sinckler (England), I Henderson (Ireland), S Warburton (Wales), G Laidlaw (Scotland), D Biggar (Wales), E Daly (England).

Maori All Blacks: J Lowe; N Milner-Skudder, M Proctor, C Ngatai, R Ioane; D McKenzie, T Kerr-Barlow; K Hames, A Dixon (capt), B May, J Wheeler, T Franklin, A Ioane, E Dixon, L Messam.
