FORMER Oxford Harlequins centre Chris Tuatara-Morrison will line up against the British & Irish Lions in Perth this morning.

The 26-year-old New Zealander has been handed the Western Force’s No 12 shirt in what will be his debut for the Super Rugby outfit.

And playing alongside Ed Stubbs, he will be facing the tourists new centre partnership of Irish legend Brian O’Driscoll and England powerhouse Manu Tuilagi. Tuatara-Morrison played for Quins during the 2010-11 season, but did not set the world alight.

Another former Quins man, flanker Chris Alcock, has played 14 Super Rugby matches for the Force this season, but was not selected for today’s clash.

The Force field five players with Test experience.

With 15 players having already started for the Lions on tour, another 15 get their opportunity to impress head coach Warren Gatland.

The remaining seven are set for a chance against Queensland Reds in Brisbane this Saturday.

Included in today’s line-up is Ireland hooker Rory Best, who was summoned barely 24 hours before the Lions left London following Dylan Hartley's sending-off in the Aviva Premiership final and subsequent ban.

Oxford Harlequins could also have another former player taking on the Lions in Melbourne Rebels scrum half Nick Stirzaker.

Stirzaker’s side host the Lions on Tuesday, June 25.
