The British & Irish Lions are a touring side steeped in history and tradition, and one that embodies the romanticism of the Rugby game. With New Zealand 2017 now a fading memory, the countdown begins to South Africa in 2021.
At times it looked like the Lions had confounded their progress in this fixture with ill discipline, but they stayed strong to the last, securing an incredible victory that brings the test series level.
The Hurricanes and the Lions played out an often frantic, but ultimately exciting game of end-to-end rugby in Wellington that kept fans on the edge of their seat right through to the final whistle. Join us as we take a look at the key areas of the game.
The first round of the three test series falls in New Zealand’s favour after a dominant performance from the All Blacks pack allows them to control the game and finish comfortable winners. Join us as we analyse the key areas of a game that portrayed rugby at its finest.
Off the back of a defeat against the Blues, and against a side who have been scoring tries for fun this year, the Lions put in an incredible defensive display to come through and beat the Crusaders by twelve points to three.
After a laboured opening victory, the Lions would be hoping to set their mark on this second game of their tour with an improved performance. Having had time on the ground, and the opportunity to work alongside each other in earnest, fans could certainly expect a good game of rugby, with the hope of another Lions victory.
