Donncha O’Callaghan and John Hayes are on the Lions side to face Manawatu tomorrow while Ronan O’Gara has been named on the bench.

The side will be captained by Scotland hooker Gordon Bulloch and unlike those selected for the Southland game prior to the first first Test, Bulloch and his colleagues are all playing for places in the side for the game in Wellington next Saturday.

A notable absentee from tomorrow’s side is Gavin Henson however.

On Sunday responding to a question about the rumour that Henson had left the Lions tour and flown back to be with with girlfriend, Woodward said, ” I hope not because he’s playing on Tuesday.”

Lions: Geordan Murphy (Leicester Tigers and Ireland); Jason Robinson (Sale Sharks and England), Ollie Smith (Leicester Tigers and England), Gordon D’Arcy (Leinster and Ireland), Shane Williams (Ospreys and Wales); Charlie Hodgson (Sale Sharks and England), Chris Cusiter (Borders and Scotland); Andy Sheridan (Sale Sharks and England), Gordon Bulloch (capt, Glasgow and Scotland), John Hayes (Munster and Ireland), Simon Shaw (London Wasps and England), Donncha O’Callaghan (Munster and Ireland), Martin Corry (Leicester Tigers and England), Martyn Williams (Blues and Wales), Michael Owen (Dragons and Wales). Replacements: Andy Titterrell (Sale Sharks and England), Matt Stevens (Bath and England), Brent Cockbain (Ospreys and Wales), Neil Back (Leicester Tigers), Gareth Cooper (Dragons and Wales), Ronan O’Gara (Munster and Ireland), Mark Cueto (Sale Sharks and England).
