Lions make three changes for second test with South Africa

Munster’s Conor Murray has been recalled to the Lions’ team for the second Test against South Africa.

Head-coach Warren Gatland has made three changes from the side which started their win against the Springboks in Cape Town last week.

Scotland’s Chris Harris replaces Elliott Daly in the centre while England loosehead prop Mako Vunipola has been given the nod to start in the front-row.

Ali Price and Rory Sutherland drop to the bench with Alun Wyn Jones captaining the side.

Leinster trio Tadhg Furlong, Robbie Henshaw and Jack Conan retain their places with Tadhg Beirne among the replacements.
