After losing 12-3 at the half-time break, the hosts felt that they had been unfairly treated by a series of referees calls in the first Test. They lost 22-17.

Rassie Erasmus, Springboks head coach, criticized officials on social media following the first Test. This has heightened tension leading up to this clash. The hosts made a few key changes to their starting lineup with Jasper Wiese, Vincent Koch, and Marco van Staden all drafting in.

Indeed, if the players who survived the New Zealand series thought that was tough then just wait until they see what Gatland has in store for them this summer.

The head coach has many options and will make use of them all during this tour. Ken Owens and Jamie George are fighting for the hooker spot. Mako Vunipola, Wyn Jones, and Maro Itoje may be preferred as props. Maro Itoje's position in the second row is almost certain after Alun Wyn, captain of the squad, withdrew following a shoulder injury. Gatland also has an embarrassing array to choose from for the backs.

Although there are fewer games during the week than usual, Gatland insists that all his players will have the chance to shine before Springboks arrive.

He said, "If you were completely focused on the Tests you might not engage with it but we believe it's so essential that all players get the opportunity to start early."

"I have often spoken of the harmony in the squad and the need for everyone to feel that they are given a chance. We believe it's vital. Ex-players know that when you play in those first games, it feels like you are selling your soul.

It's very much in line with our thinking. Everyone should feel that they are a part of this and that there is an opportunity for them to participate.

Gatland stated that there would be no fans for a Lions tour. He also said that "there's a hint or sadness that we won't have fans" and that they won't see the same sea of red you associate with Lions tours. It will be the down side of it.

"Hopefully, the rugby will do the talking. We need to connect with our fans back home as much possible through social media and make them feel as involved as possible."
