The second Test between Australia and the British & Irish Lions will be played under a closed roof at the Etihad Stadium.

With scattered showers predicted to develop in Melbourne on Saturday evening ahead of kick off at 20:00 local time, the Australian Rugby Union have decided to ensure that the match will be played in dry conditions.

The move comes after Wallaby replacement Kurtley Beale lost his footing while taking a potentially match-winning penalty during Saturday's first Test.
