The All Blacks winger Cory Jane is set to make his return to rugby tomorrow night after being named in the Wellington reserves for their top-of-the-table provincial Premiership clash with Auckland in the capital.
Jane hasn't played rugby since suffering a serious knee in injury in Super Rugby preseason in January.
The unbeaten Lions welcome back 2 other players from injury, winger Alapati Leiua and lock Api Naikatini.
Centre Tim Bateman is also back in the starting line-up after a spell last week, while prop John Schwalger rotates in for Reggie Goodes.
The Lions have not beaten Auckland since 2009.
