However Manu Tuilagi will be a welcome addition to the Lions midfield, with Billy Twelvetrees and Brad Barritt struggling to gel against the Canberrans. Tuilagi will partner Barritt, with Owen Farrell playing at fly half as Stuart Hogg drops to the bench. Rory Best had a very poor game against the Brumbies and he will be on the bench for this clash, with Welshman Richard Hibbard playing at hooker instead.

The Rebels have named their strongest side available, with Luke Burgess also in the starting XV. Scrumhalf Burgess is one of the few players in the Rebels set up with international experience and will be partnered by young fly half Bryce Hegarty, who returns from illness after missing the clash against the Tahs.
