British & Irish LionsHead Coach Warren Gatland will tonight unveil his team for the first Test against the All Blacks at Eden Park on Saturday.

The Lions are currently four from six with wins against NZ Provincial Barbarians, the Crusaders, the Maori and the Chiefs. From what we have seen in the warm up matches we believe (or hope) this is the squad he is set to name...

Gatland would appear to have reverted to type throughout the tour and is looking to bash the All Blacks in their own backyard as oppose to tearing them apart.  Easier said than done when the All Blacks haven't lost at Eden Park since 1994!

Just putting this back line out there, if one of the sides picks up a Test Series win by game 2 then could this be the Lions backline to throw caution to the wind for the 3rd Test?

9. Rhys Webb, 10. Finn Russell, 11. Anthony Watson, 12. Owen Farrell, 13. Jonathan Joseph, 14. Jack Nowell, 15. Liam Williams

Now that would be an exciting game to watch!
