Breakdown tactics from the lions

there was an article in the Torygraph by Geech over the weekend where the emphasis was on the breakdown changes that the lions had made over the course of the tour

Unfortunately he failed to mention what actual changes were made and I haven't watched enough of the play to pick up what they were - did anyone work out what they were

Anyway, Geech goes on to say that NZ should be worried about them as they will be picked up by all the northern hemisphere sides for the RWC2019. Ireland and England were expected to be significant winners as a result

It did make me realise that with Sarries players forming the majority of the players who actually contested the breakdowns (deliberate policy by Gatland) the immediate winners were going to be us

Makes me more interested to know what they actually were - sometimes Geech is too clever for the rest of us

Surely we should be entitled to 1/6th of the Lions cup?
