Rugby Union – Gatland has faith in O’Mahony

British & Irish Lions coach Warren Gatland has confirmed that Peter O'Mahony will captain the tourists in the game against Maori All Blacks on Saturday. Owen Farrell will miss the match after suffering a grade one quadriceps strain so Johnny Sexton will start the game at fly-half. Gatland said: "Peter is a proven captain with Munster who never takes a backward step and we believe that those leadership qualities will serve us well on Saturday against a quality and determined Maori All Blacks team." The Lions are 4/1 with bet365 to win the first Test against New Zealand and 6/1 to claim a 2-1 series victory.
