Ireland centre Jared Payne's touchdown, a penalty try and the kicking of Wales fly-half Dan Biggar completed a convincing win that buoyed Gatland as he prepares for Saturday's meeting with the world champions.

There were two long range tries in the second term and though the Chiefs looked to be out on their feet, these are only positive signs for Saturday's first Test.

The Chiefs' coach, Dave Rennie, whose team were beaten 34-6 on Tuesday, believes the Lions are growing stronger by the day in the run-up to Saturday's first Test in Auckland.

"The referees have identified that.it's been frustrating for us", Gatland said.

"To play against the Chiefs, they've only lost a couple of games this season, we get plenty of highlights beamed over to the United Kingdom of them scoring unbelievable tries and everything else so it's just very important for us to leave nothing out there and put everything in there to make sure the boys go into the Test match with another win and some real positivity".

Justin Tipuric fed Daly who raced down the left, Payne and Robbie Henshaw took the move on in the Chiefs' 22, and a fine pass from Iain Henderson handed Nowell the chance to strike.

The result ended a sequence of mid-week defeats as the Lions, who earlier lost to the Auckland Blues and Otago Highlanders, starved the Chiefs of attacking opportunities.

"I think our performances have been good; not everyone agrees with that opinion", said Gatland.

"For us it's about keeping the ball and not giving away penalties". Our phase play in training has been awesome.


Jack Nowell was the best player on the ground tonight.

All Blacks boss Steve Hansen has continually predicted a prosaic style from the Lions, but Nowell's revelations indicate how keen Gatland is for the tourists to find a fluent front-foot stride. "He's a very experienced man".

Assistant coach Ian Foster says fingers are crossed the 31-year-old will be cleared by medical staff.

"Comparing it to other big games, there is a similar amount of pressure there, with the hype and the atmosphere".

Coach Warren Gatland insists that the players are all in with a shout of making the Test side, even though this game comes just four days before big one.

"He has been a big part of the leadership group for a long time now, and just the way he grew into the (captaincy) role past year", Foster added.

Donald's penalty on the stroke of half-time was the only source of frustration for the Lions in an otherwise excellent first half, as it ensured they would only go in seven points ahead despite their dominant performance.

Of note were Liam Williams, finally looking like the player he is on this tour, whose line breaking and deftness under the high ball was a pleasure to watch. It was great to get the win with the boys. He has had time to get his head around it, and he has been working really hard with the trainer and physios to get right for this game.

Blindside flanker Peter O'Mahony is poised to take the leadership while fellow Irishman Sean O'Brien could start on the openside after both impressed in the wins over the Crusaders and Maori All Blacks. The No.8 has been out with a broken thumb since April but 97-times capped Read is set to be passed fit.
