British and Irish Lions 2017: Peter O'Mahony captains side against New Zealand

Ireland flanker Peter O’Mahony will captain the British and Irish Lions in the first Test against New Zealand in Auckland on Saturday.

Wales flanker Sam Warburton, made tour captain by head coach Warren Gatland, will be on the bench at Eden Park.

Welshman Liam Williams and England’s Elliot Daly are surprise inclusions in the back three, alongside another Englishman, Anthony Watson.

The Lions play three Tests against the world champions.

The All Blacks announced their side earlier on Wednesday, with number eight Kieran Read named as skipper after returning from injury.

The second Test takes place in Wellington on Saturday, 1 July, before the teams return to Eden Park on Saturday, 8 July.
