The British and Irish Lions take on South Africa in the second of three Tests this Saturday knowing another victory would secure a series win against the world champion Springboks.
Coaches Warren Gatland and ‘Boks coach Jacques Nienaber have both made three changes to their respective starting line-ups.
The tourists hold a 1-0 series lead thanks to a thrilling 22-17 win in Cape Town last time out.
History could well be on the Lions’ side, with the tourists having only ever lost two series after winning the first Test (in Australia in 2001 and New Zealand in 1930).

What’s the team news?
Gatland has made three changes to the Lions’ starting XV, bringing scrum-half Conor Murray in for Ali Price who drops to the bench.
Chris Harris starts in centre to win his first Lions Test cap, partnering Robbie Henshaw.
Mako Vunipola is handed a starting jersey after impressing off the bench at the scrum in the first Test, which he was not originally involved in but moved onto the bench due to a Wyn Jones injury.
Vunipola packs down alongside hooker Luke Cowan-Dickie and Tadhg Furlong to complete the front row.
Alun Wyn Jones captains the side to earn his 11th successive Lions Test cap, joining Maro Itoje in the second row.
In the back row, Courtney Lawes starts at No. 6 with Tom Curry at No. 7 and Jack Conan retains the No. 8 jersey, although rival Taulupe Faletau has been named on the bench.
As for the backs, Dan Biggar has been named at fly-half and will play subject to completing return-to-play protocol and assessment by an independent concussion consultant.
The back-three of Anthony Watson, Duhan van der Merwe and Stuart Hogg remains unchanged, with no room once again for Josh Adams while Liam Williams misses out altogether after a 10-minute bench cameo in the first Test.
Forwards cover among the replacements comes from Ken Owens, Rory Sutherland, Kyle Sinckler, Tadhg Beirne and Faletau, while Price, Owen Farrell and Elliot Daly cover the backs.
As for the Springboks, two of the three starting changes come in the front row after Ox Nché being ruled out due to a neck niggle from the first Test.
Prop Steven Kitshoff lines up alongside Frans Malherbe and Bongi Mbonambi, whose hamstring strain has recovered sufficiently for the second Test.
The other change sees Jasper Wiese named at No. 8, where he earns his first Test start after a debut off the bench against Georgia earlier this summer.
There is a six-two split on the bench, which sees Trevor Nyakane and Vincent Koch provide cover at prop, while Marco van Staden takes over from Rynhardt Elstadt as loose forward cover along with Kwagga Smith, while Herschel Jantjies and Damian Willemse will provide support in the backline.

What have the coaches said?
Lions head coach Warren Gatland: “”As always, selection was incredibly tough.
“However, we’ve made the changes we think are the right calls for the weekend’s game.
“It’ll be another tight contest. We know the Springboks will be hurting and they’ll throw everything at us on Saturday, but I think there’s plenty more to come from us too.
“We feel we can go up another level from where we were in the first Test and I would expect us to improve.
“It’s the biggest game on the tour and we have to embrace the expectation that comes with it. As players and coaches, these are the games you want to be involved in.
“We’re relishing the opportunity to face the Springboks again on Saturday and potentially seal a series win.”
Springbok coach Jacques Nienaber: “This is a massive game for us; it is do or die in order to stay in the race to win the series and we selected a team that offers continuity in selection, but also that we thought would be the best suited to achieve the objectives we have set for this match.
“Ox did well in the scrums last week and has been ruled out due to injury, but fortunately we have a world class player in Steven who can step into the starting team. The fact that this will mark his 50th Test will make this occasion even more important for him.
“We have had an extra week on the training field after a few disruptive weeks in the build-up to the opening Test, so we are confident that the players in the squad will be able to deliver on the physicality and grit that will be required in this match.
“We need to be better in every area of the game this week, and the set pieces will be crucial in laying the foundations we need to execute our game plan effectively.
“We also spoke about our discipline and the aerial battle as a team, and we intend to work as hard as possible at training this week to correct the errors that cost us last week.”
