Ireland rugby union back Jared Payne's been ruled out of Saturday's opening British and Irish Lions tour match.

The versatile Ulster player has a calf strain, so misses the game against New Zealand's Provincial Barbarians.

England's Elliot Daly takes his place on the bench.

Payne had been one of five Ireland players in the matchday squad, with the full back and centre on the bench alongside Tadhg Furlong.

Jonathan Sexton, Rory Best and Iain Henderson had been named in the starting XV.
