British and Irish Lions

Rugby U


Good morning Everyone from a perch high up in the Rockie mountains. ! I'm @doreguymike and I've been summoned by the heavens to write a few words on the Lions vs Hurricanes match in Wellington tonight.

Oooo ! I scored a team sheet at the last minute. That'll do.

Teams are taking the field led out by the Ulsterman Rory Best. Courtney Lawes looking like he's up for it. Brad Shields leads out the Hurricanes and 33,000 people are on their feet.

The man in the middle is Mr. Romain Poite and we're just about ready to go. 30 seconds to go.

We're off & Biggar kicks off. Shields gathers. Toria hoofs it down field and now Nowell attacks on the left.

And that man Milner Scudder scampers over the half way. Ball comes across to the left flank and Jordie Barrett boots it. Scrum Red.

Free kick Lions and they're off over the far side on half way. Laid law knocks on in the ruck. Scrum Hurricanes. 4'.

Scrum feed and ball on the short side. Nehe gathers and flies down the right wing. Ball cleared by Lions and it's a frantic start all round. Now scrum Red on halfway.

Monsieur Poite remonstrated w the Kiwis. He's a picky pants for sure at scrum time and that will suit the Lions.

Handbags now between the sides as Ben May bored in from the side on our tight head and the kiwis get penalized. Proper order and we need to see this type of officiating. 1st line out of the game after the kick but Lawes gathers. 8'.
