South Africa-B & I Lions: schedule and how to see the 3rd Test Match and the definition of the series

After a very fought and closed series, The British & Irish Lions will close their tour in South Africa this Saturday at the FNB Stadium in Johannesburg against the Springboks.

The meeting will be from 12:50 and you will see it live on ESPN 2 in Argentina.

The preview of the match

Warren Gatland’s ensemble will seek to close the tour successfully and take the series with them, effecting 6 changes in the starting lineup from the previous Test Match. On the other hand, the Boks surprised everyone with income from De Jager, Reinach, Morné Steyn’s experience at the bank, and Mostert as wing. Although they also present two crucial casualties such as scrum half Faf De Klerk and Pieter-Steph Du toit , voted the best player of 2019.

New appearances and casualties in South Africa give the Lions comfort and peace of mind: “I would say they weren’t creative from an offensive point of view, they didn’t stress us out,” said Warren Gatland.. The New Zealander is confident and sure that his team will win the match and thus take the series 2 to 1.

A very hot climate was experienced on this Lions tour after the strong statements and discharges of Rassie Erasmus on her social networks due to the bad refereeing of the first game. Because of this, in the second Test Match, it was a very talked-about one from both sides. Ian Foster, head coach of The All Blacks stated that it is boring how the teams are playing: “They are afraid to play, they are not risking.”

The British & Irish Lions and South Africa have met in 13 series since 1891, the British winning only 4, losing 8 and drawing 1 in 1955.
