British and Irish Lions

Rugby U


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


We're checking the knock on by Williams......and it was. Close but no cigar.

Scrum is secure this time for the Crusaders. It's cleared to Williams who's kick is too short. Crus ball up to the Lions 10........break out!

Williams couldn't claim the kick, it fell for Watson who galloped upfield, fed Sexton on the left wing.......who cut inside to feed Stander.....who dropped it.

60m gone and it's opening up a bit more this now.

Crusaders trying to spread the ball wider at the moment just can't get the handling right. The Lions pressing is putting on too much pressure.

Itoje has come on, as has Jack McGrath. Vunipola is off,

Looks like Kruis is off too

That scrum was messy and eventually the ball comes to the Crusaders....

It's hoofed upfield and Watson collects but is turned over as the entire Crusader pack descends on him

Lions turn it over...and with a couple of Murray box kicks have pushed the ball into the Crusader 22. Home side will have the lineout.
