10 Players To Debut For The British & Irish Lions
British & Irish Lions Head Coach, Warren Gatland, has named his side to take on Japan at BT Murrayfield Stadium on Saturday 26 June (kick-off 3pm) for The Vodafone Lions 1888 Cup.
No England players have been named in the starting lineup for the clash against Japan but Owen Farrell, Jamie George and Courtney all feature via the bench.
Ten Players will make their debut for the tourists with wingers Josh Adams and Duhan van der Merwe both earning their first caps for Lions.
Centre Bundee Aki starts at inside centre taking the number of debuts in the backline to three. 
In the pack, Scotland props Rory Sutherland and Zander Fagerson start alongside 2017 Lion Ken Owens. Replacement loosehead prop Wyn Jones is also set to make his Lions debut. 
All three back-rowers make their first appearance in the Red jersey with Tadhg Beirne packing down on the blindside of the scrum while Hamish Watson starts at openside and Jack Conan at no.8.
Finally, Scotland scrum-half Ali Price is also in line to make his first appearance for the tourists.
