The British and Irish Lions will predictably trot out their second-string side to play the Chiefs on Tuesday.

After their starting side picked up an impressive win over the Maori All Blacks, the reserves will take on a depleted Chiefs side at Waikato Stadium.

"We are five games into the Tour and there is still a lot to play for," said Lions head coach Warren Gatland.

"Those involved on Tuesday will be playing not only for themselves in terms of further selection but also for the whole squad."


The Lions will also be playing their six recent call-ups from the Scotland and Wales squads, all of whom will sit on the bench.

"We are here to win a Test series and we have brought cover for the replacements bench so we can limit the number of players who need to double up, which is tough to do at this level of rugby," said Gatland.
