Didn't expect that! Not followed this tour too closely with me having a newborn but managed to catch the second half of this and was really impressed. Very mature performance and Lawes was a beast.

Looking forward to the other two tests now after dreading a whitewash prior to the tour. Especially given some of the selections - in particular the midfield.

All very scrappy. Anthony Watson looks very vulnerable under a high ball, Courtney Laws was superb, and Alun Wyn Jones clearly very important with his calm decision making. But the Lions look like a thrown together Barbarians team, rather than a side that has had a proper build up. South Africa full of mistakes, don’t look fit either, unsurprising as their build up was similarly non existent. This is a long way from being a classic Lions tour.
