Well, that wasn't too good. There were players in the red shirt who need to improve drastically if we're to have any chance of avoiding an embarrassing test series. The captain for one, if he's to lead the Lions in the series he has to improve on that showing, likewise Wyn Jones, Hogg and Sexton, although Hogg did improve as the game went on. Faletau the best forward in red and Teo the best back, but his lack of game time caught up with him as he noticeably tired in the second half. Thought Sinckler did well apart from a brainf£&t with a tapped penalty. Moriarty had a pretty decent debut as well.
As they're probably the weakest team on the schedule this is not going to be easy.

The Lions' rolling maul (which to me is an exercise in obstruction) was mostly negated in the first test.

I'd like Southern Hemisphere sides get so good at performing and countering the rolling maul that Northern Hemisphere unions have it banned.

Great effort to force a draw in the test series. Not many people expected the Lions to even be competitive! Exciting finish as well

Mind I hope they do not replace the Baa Baas in the autumn, I think that would be wrong
