British and Irish Lions

Rugby U


Here are the teams.... it's a bold attacking side for the Lions.


Good morning, fortress Eden Park awaits, the first Test between the mighty All Blacks and the British and Irish Lions, Rob Sutton with you. This is your Everest boys.

Amazing what a week can do in sport, the Lions were heading nowhere before their morale boosting win over for the Maoris, a win over the Chiefs would follow on Tuesday to certainly give the Lions half a chance in this test series.

Peter O'Mahony leads out the Lions, what a moment for the man from Munster.

New Zealand are now out on the pitch but I tell you what this is a home game for the Lions, it's a sea of red at Eden Park

National anthem time, although we are only having the New Zealand one.

Plenty of emotion on the All Black side during that anthem, they are bang up for this, sadly....

There we are that's the Haka done, crowd have gone mad, the Lions players stand in a line to face the challenge, here we go!

Jaco Peyper our match referee, the All Blacks get us underway.

1- Smith pinged for coming in at the side, Farrell kicks to the 10 metre line.
