Lions head coach Warren Gatland says his players would be wrong to assume the first warm-up match of their New Zealand tour doesn’t count for much.

His side take on a Provincial Barbarians team on Saturday.

Sam Warburton captains the side as part of an all-Welsh back-row while Ireland’s Rory Best Ian Henderson and Johnny Sexton all start.
