The British and Irish Lions offered South Africa the skull this Saturday for the first Test of the tour with world champions (17-22).
The British and Irish Lions pocketed the first round of their tour of South Africa this Saturday, in the Cape (17-22). Warren, who knows how to make a difference in the second act, is a proud winner among world champions for the men of Gotland, not so exciting after a match. A setback to snatch the pride of world champions Springbox, their only official second shooting since winning their title in Japan (Kovid demands, having only faced Box Georgia (40-9) since November 2019).
Awakening of the Lions in the second period
However, at Kickoff, we think we will find the game that strengthened the South Africans in the last World Cup. Physically in position, Jack Nineber’s men put the Lions in the snapper, while Montpellier relied on Pollard’s boot to lead the score when he returned to the locker room (12-3, 40th). In the opposing camp, the selection set up by Warren Gatland seems to be looking for its automatics, and failing to settle the opposition, allowing even two penalties to escape Bigger’s defeats (36, 40). A scene that is completely reversed in the second effect.
Raised by the Lions as they exit the locker room, Cowan-Dickey (12-8, 44th) takes advantage of the ball taken to register the first attempt of the meeting. The first warning shot for the box, responds quickly with impetus on foot: one attempt is denied by Le Rooks (47th), followed by a very valid attempt allowed by De Clerk (17-10, 50). A lightning bolt in the pan marks the rise of the strength of Dan Bigger’s teammates, who, on foot, are unable to break out of the British trap (17-19, 63rd) on foot to allow uninterested world champions. Substitute Owen Farrell (17-22, 79th) made an unstoppable achievement just moments before confirming from the siren.
The two teams have a meeting at the same place next Saturday (31) for revenge …
