The British & Irish Lions line up against the Crusaders on Saturday, desperate for a moral-boosting victory.
Smarting from defeat by the Blues on Wednesday, the Lions have responded by selecting what looks very close to being the likely Test side, with the notable exception of Tour captain Sam Warburton.
That said, they now face truly top class opposition. The Crusaders are unbeaten this season, winning a record-breaking 14 games to top the Super Rugby standings. They also include six New Zealand internationals, including the All Black tight five.
The Lions will undoubtedly try and take on their opponents up front, seeking to dominate the set pieces. That they do this isn’t a given by any stretch of the imagination, but a display of power could create the space for Irish scrum half Conor Murray to profit.
BetVictor offers 9/2 that Murray scores a try during the 80 minutes, and we will be having some of that.
Recommendation: Murray to score a try during the 80 minutes at 9/2, 1 pt, BetVictor
