Before the match...

Ireland's John Hayes and England's Tim Payne have been brought into the Lions front row to face the Emerging Springboks on Tuesday.

Hayes who has replaced injured Murray and Payne who is covering for Sheridan who is out at the moment due to back problems, land off the plane and straight onto the pitch.

The Emerging SpringBok will be an awesome test for the Lions, with confidence high after the seniors win over the weekend, the Lions will need to come out fighting and stamp their authority early in the game.

O'Gara takes the captain role, making that 5 different captains this tour, and Shane Williams will have his last chance to get on the test team which will be a tall order.

8 of the Emerging SpringBok have already faced the Lions in the warm up games, so it should make for a cracking game.

With Cape Town experiencing 40kts of wind and the rain coming down sideways, should be quite the specticle of a time honoured Lions game!
