After a run of warm-up games, British and Irish Lions captain Sam Warburton will finally lead his team into battle today in the first Test against Australia.
The eagerly awaited start of the three-match rugby series will kick off at the Suncorp Stadium in Brisbane at 11:00am (8:00pm local time).
The Lions enter the first Test as marginal favourites over their hosts, despite a final loss blemishing a previously perfect warm-up record on tour.
Up to 30,000 British fans are expected to be in the Queensland city for the match.
