Superb win for the Lions today.
The Lions proved once again that there is a massive difference between their midweek and Test sides, with a powerful win over the Maori All Blacks.
Despite going behind to a Liam Messam try, the Lions fought back, dominating up front and eventually running out comfortable winners.
The Lions have just one more game on Tuesday against the Chiefs before they take on the All Blacks, and with that Sky Sports have named their Test team. Interstingly they’ve gone for Peter O’Mahony as captain, with tour captain Sam Warburton not making their team.
