It’s a big rugby weekend, with the first game for the British and Irish Lions on their tour of South Africa, 2pm on Saturday on Sky. It’s against a Highveld XV. No, not Ebbw Vale, but the veld of Rustenberg, near Johannesburg. Predictions are for an easy ride against the invitational team.
Confusion will reign the following Wednesday when the Lions take on the Lions. The Golden Lions (used to be Transvaal). To better tell them apart it’s the Xerox Lions vs the HSBC Lions.
Oh, and Wales are playing as well, vs Canada in Toronto, 7.45 on the Beeb.
