Rory Best will captain the British and Irish Lions for his side’s next game against the Hurricanes in Wellington on Tuesday.

It is the second time the hooker has skippered the Lions during the tour, having led them to a win over the Chiefs.

Coach Warren Gatland made the decision after the Lions lost the opening Test against New Zealand 30-15 on Saturday.
