British and Irish Lions captain Sam Warburton to feature against Highlanders

Pammachio Corsino | 21 Giugno, 2017, 10:25

It means everything to the Kiwis and it's only really until you travel the country that you fully understand that.

"It probably lasts about six to seven hours and you can set it to come on automatically every one-and-a-half to two hours".

"I thought [the referee] did a good job and I didn't have any issues with that", Gatland said. "The pace they play on the back of that attacking kicking game is great to watch". They have to because they play in different conditions. On Saturday, the 23 did it for the rest of the lads sat on the sidelines. It's not up for debate.

Head coach Warren Gatland said: "Sam hadn't had a lot of rugby under his belt so it was important to get him involved for this game".

We all grew up watching the All Blacks.

Billy Vunipola's withdrawal from the squad due to a shoulder injury was billed as a serious blow to the Lions chances before they had even got on the plane.

It's not always intentional but it can be disrespectful. The tactic and Murray's execution were key in victory for Warren Gatland's side.

"And, yes, I learned that the hard way when we didn't look for a drop goal in that World Cup quarter-final against France in Cardiff in 2007". It was very unfair, in my opinion.

They lost two kickoffs in the first half and conceded half a dozen soft penalties while dropping passes.

That's the aim for everyone on Tuesday is to put a bit more pressure on the coaches and it's a lot easier to put pressure on them if you come out a winning team, rather than not.

"We know the quality of players we have".

It is all about the three Tests.

"Steve (Hansen) will know that". "I think everyone should be a leader in defence". The challenge now is to carry that momentum into the Highlanders game tomorrow.

Flanker O'Mahony turned in an excellent display in a hugely impressive Lions back-row unit.

Asked to assess the team Gatland named against Crusaders, and whether it could be the line-up starting the first test, Sir Ian believes the head coach will still want to try combinations before the meeting with the All Blacks.

I would have preferred it not to be against my old franchise, but the Lions boys desperately needed a win ahead of the Maori match in Rotorua next Saturday, and the first test at Eden Park a week later.

"But we are ready to get battle-hardened for a test match, we are still ramping it up in training because we have to be up to breakneck speed for the first test".

It was a good weekend for the Irish.

Matt Todd of the Crusaders is tackled by Sean O'Brien and Jamie George.

Three penalties from Farrell gave the visitors a 9-3 lead at the break, with Richie Mo'unga offering the Crusaders' sole response, also from the boot.

These guys have never played together before.

Despite having the majority of possession the Lions went tryless but will gain huge confidence from their win, which was built on an exceptional defensive effort.
