British and Irish Lions

Rugby U


Here's the teams for today: Thanks to @charleswrites for the graphics


Penalty for the Crusaders is kicked to the Lions 22......taken off the tail, out to midfield where a cross field kick goes too long and into touch.

Last 2 minutes

Murray drives the Crus back to their own 22.

More relentless pressure wins a Lions scru on the Crusaders 22. Final few seconds ticking away here.

Hooter has sounded.....still waiting for the scrum

Ball secured.....Murray back to Farrell....into touch. Game over. Lions win by 12 to 3. First defeat of the season for the Crusaders

Much better Lions performance. Fewer handling errors, penalty count stripped back. Defensively sound, front foot pressing defence didn't let the opposition get into their game.

If you want to be picky. No tries. Not too many opportunites created but what there were, the will need to be more clinical with in the games to come.

Well, that's it for now. We'll have the next match for you on Tuesday, when the Lions take on the Highlanders.

Enjoy the rest of your Saturday.
