Fagerson selected for South Africa A fixture
Glasgow Warriors tight-head Zander Fagerson has been named amongst the replacements for Wednesday’s British and Irish Lions match, which will see the tourists take on South Africa A in Cape Town.
It will be Fagerson’s third involvement in a matchday squad on tour to date, having made his first start in the famous red jersey in last Wednesday’s victory over the Sharks.
He will be one of only two Scottish players involved in the midweek clash, with outside centre Chris Harris joining him in the 23 named by Warren Gatland.
The match is live on Sky Sports at 7pm on Wednesday, with Channel Four providing extended highlights through their All4 streaming service. Radio commentary is also available via Talksport.
