The B & I Lions tour has been a great success thus far. Despite their defeat to SA 'A' a they will be full of confidence heading into the first Test. All three Test matches have now moved to Cape Town due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
This will suit the Lions as they won't have to deal with the altitude of Johannesburg, which is generally very beneficial to South Africa. Weather conditions could easily play into the hand of the tourists here.
Wth all the warm-up games complete, all that remains is the three-match Test series.
