Wing Shane Williams will be on the bench for the British and Irish Lions’ match against Southern Kings in Port Elizabeth on Tuesday afternoon.

The Welsh flyer who has not been in the best of form since arriving in South Africa, has been battling a stomach bug for the past three days.

He was initially named in the side, with Ugo Monye providing cover on the bench.

However, Monye, who had an excellent outing against Western Province at Newlands last Saturday, has now been promoted to the run-on XV at the expense of Williams.
