Price returns to Lions starting XV
Glasgow Warriors scrum-half Ali Price will make his second Lions Test start on Saturday (7 August, kick-off 5pm), having been handed the number 9 jersey for the third and decisive Test.
Price will pair-up with Welsh fly-half Dan Biggar once again, as the Lions seek to secure a successful Series over the 2019 Rugby World Cup Champions, South Africa.
British & Irish Lions Head Coach, Warren Gatland, has made six changes in all to the starting XV which lost to the Springboks last Saturday in Cape Town.
That defeat saw the Castle Lager Lions Series draw level at 1-1 going into this weekend’s final Test match.
Price is joined by two fellow Scots, Duhan van der Merwe who starts his third Test match on the wing, and former Glasgow Warriors team-mate and Price’s good friend Finn Russell who could win his first Test cap from the bench.
The match is live on Sky Sports, with commentary also available on Talksport.
