FORMER Bishop Heber pupil and England rugby star Tom Curry has made the line-up for the British and Irish Lions second Test against South Africa taking place this Saturday.

It comes after the 23-year-old Sale Sharks player played for the side in their opening match last Saturday.

Tom’s father David is still headteacher at the Chester Road school in Malpas, while his brother Ben is in the England Rugby Union side.

At the weekend, the Lions came from behind in a dominant second half to seize an early lead in their series against South Africa with a tense 22-17 victory at Cape Town Stadium.

It was often an ugly spectacle and at times the Lions looked slightly lost, failing to gain a meaningful foothold up-front and with half-backs Ali Price and Biggar unable to provide direction.

But a dramatic swing took place early in the second half as South Africa’s discipline collapsed as a resurgent Lions began stamping their authority in every area while Biggar kicked the points.

This weekend’s match kicks off at 5.30pm.
