Wellington - Centre Jared Payne has been ruled out of the British and Irish Lions' opening tour match in New Zealand with a calf strain, team management announced on Friday.
New Zealand-born Irishman Payne had been named on the bench for Saturday's game against the Provincial Barbarians in Whangarei, but his spot will be taken by England's Elliot Daly.
Daly was one of the stars of England's Six Nations success this year.
