O'Mahony ready to lead Lions - Stander

Peter O'Mahony is ready to captain the British and Irish Lions in Saturday's first Test against New Zealand in Auckland, says his Munster team-mate CJ Stander.

Ireland flanker O'Mahony is the favourite to captain Warren Gatland's side, having led the team to victory over the Maori All Blacks last Saturday.

Back-row forward Stander was speaking after helping the Lions to a convincing 34-6 win over the Chiefs on Tuesday.

The team for the opening Test will be named on Wednesday.
