Have to accept the need for additional fodder...

I would just change the last two midweek games to be lions "a" or lions "united" or lions "ba bas", with a different shirt and badge. Everything else is the same.... should preserve the "history" of the lions shirt .

Well, Alan Dell's very first scrum, as a replacement for the indisciplined original tour pick Marler, went rather well.

Interestingly none of the other call-ups were brought off the replacement bench.

I think that was always the intention, they were called up for bench duty, depending on injuries and how the 1st Test goes they might get game time next week for the last mid-week match and then they'll be gone.

And then Marler returned and saw out the rest of the match.
