Quiz: How Well Do You Remember The Lions Team From The 2009 Third Test?

The Lions claimed their first Test victory in eight years in July 2009 when they cruised past a much-changed Springboks side in Johannesburg.

The Tourists ran out 28-9 winners having lost the first two encounters narrowly. Sir Ian McGeechan named an experimental side for the clash while Peter De Villiers rang the changes for the hosts having seen his side secure a series victory the week before with a monster overtime kick from Morné Steyn.

The much-anticipated clash kicks off at 08:35 tomorrow morning with a New Zealand backlash expected to blow Warren Gatland’s side away. If the visitors can pull off another win and take home the series, it would be the biggest sporting upset in several years. The Kiwi coach has named an unchanged side for the game in Eden Park while Steve Hansen has recalled the absolute phenom that is Julian Savea as he looks to evade a humbling series defeat that would severely tarnish his legacy.
