Great Britain head coach Wayne Bennett has named three debutants in his team to face New Zealand in Saturday’s first Test in Auckland.

Warrington duo Daryl Clark and Joe Philbin will be on the bench when the game kicks off, while Hull’s Jake Connor will get his first start for the Lions in the centres.

Connor replaces Olier Gildart who is out of the rest of the tour with a shoulder injury, while Luke Thompson (rib) and Lachlan Coote are missing from the side that lost to Tonga Invitational last weekend.
