Cherry and White duo named on bench for British and Irish Lions

After impressing against South Africa A, both Chris Harris and Louis Rees-Zammit have been named on the bench for the British and Irish Lions' clash against the DHL Stormers at Cape Town Stadium on Saturday 17 July (kick off 5pm BST). 

The game, which will be shown live and exclusively on Sky Sports, is the final Tour match before the start of three Tests against World Champions, the Springboks.  

“It’s an important game as it’s the final chance for the coaching group to see the players perform prior to the start of the Test Series,” said Warren Gatland. 

“For the matchday 23 it’s their last opportunity to stake a claim for a Test place, so I expect to see a highly motivated group of players."
