In June Rugby Lions to face Barbarians in opener to NZ tour 2017 . The New Zealand Barbarians will face the Lions this year to kick off the tourists’ eagerly awaited first journey here in 12 years.
The June 3, 2017 fixture was originally earmarked as a Provincial Union XV, which sounded somewhat nebulous. It will still be played at Whangarei’s Toll Stadium and the make-up of the team, mainly Mitre 10 Cup and the odd Heartland Championship players, will still be along original lines.
The thirtieth DHL New Zealand Lions Series kicks off at Toll Stadium in Whangarei on 3 June 2017 with The British & Irish Lions taking on the New Zealand Provincial Barbarians.
The New Zealand Provincial Barbarians will be made up of some of the best players out of Mitre 10 Cup. They will be keen to give The British & Irish Lions a tough opening game in what could be the biggest game of some of their careers.
