We've less than a week to go before the first test between the British and Irish Lions take on South Africa in the first of three test matches.

Alongside Brian to discuss the major talking points from both sides is the former Springbok captain Bob Skinstad.

Lions defence coach Steve Tandy says the majority of the test squad has been picked but Brian and Bob disagree on a few positions. We also get the expert take of former Lions coach Sir Ian McGeechan who joins the show to give us give us his XV for Saturday and talk through what it's like as a Lions coach in test match week.

Elsewhere Bob gives us the lo down on the Springboks who suffered a shock loss to the Bulls over the weekend but he says it's not as big a worry as some are making it out to be. We also get the latest from South Africa after a difficult week for the country politically.
