The tour itself may have started over a week ago, but the Queensland Reds landed the first punch on Australia's behalf during a grueling match on Saturday morning in Brisbane.

The Lions had things all their own way in the opening two fixtures, but the Reds dragged them into the trenches and really made them work for their 22-12 victory.

Now the Lions will enter uncharted territory and take on a scratch team comprised of professional and amateur stars from both New South Wales Country and Queensland Country.

With 10 amateurs in the 23-man squad, and just nine players with Super Rugby experience, many view this game as an easy outing for the Lions.

A quick look at the side the Lions have named shows, while they're taking the game seriously, there is room for experimentation.
