British and Irish Lions coach Warren Gatland says he is “confident” fly‑half Owen Farrell will be fit for the first test against New Zealand on Saturday.

Farrell, 25, was set to be on the bench in the 32‑10 win over the Maori All Blacks in the weekend but was withdrawn after a quadriceps injury in training.

He will not feature on Tuesday against the Chiefs, with Gatland naming the six recent call‑ups among his replacements.

The Lions coach added that Farrell was withdrawn from the game in Rotorua as a precautionary measure.

The Chiefs will host the British and Irish Lions at 7.35pm tomorrow while the All Blacks will face the Lions at 7.35pm Saturday.
