Lions shine in Chiefs victory

Lions shine in Chiefs victory

I have enjoyed watching the Blues and Highlanders do well against them, but I also enjoyed seeing the Lions break out from their own 22m area against the Chiefs for Jack Nowell's second try.

Daly had some good moments against the Chiefs.

New Zealand captain Kieran Read is firmly on course to make his comeback from injury in Saturday's first Test against the British and Irish Lions.

That said, there was a slight doubt with the back three.

In the backs, the likes of Ben Te'o and Anthony Watson shone, but anyone thinking that Saturday's team were nailed on to start obviously didn't pass the message on to the XV that started against the Chiefs on Tuesday.

Lions assistant coach Graham Rowntree has given an insight into the inner workings of Warren Gatland and his minimalist approach.

But another impressive showing against the Hurricanes and Nowell may have done enough to prove to Gatland, who is a fan of his talents, that he is worth a shot against the All Blacks. "He is a player who is prolific in terms of getting his hands on the ball". He showed superb finishing ability to score the second, which ranged from one try-line to the other and showed the full range of the tourists' handling and passing skills. I played with him. It was a combination that looked pretty risky and pretty potent. We got ourselves in that position here and we drove on.

George North remains the favourite on the left wing.

"The ball is on the field for a long time - it's a quick game - and we have put the players under a lot of stress".

"The big thing for me is that I just want to get my hands on the ball, just want to play the rugby I've played all year - there's no lack of effort". "If I got anywhere near it, it would be unbelievable", he told United Kingdom newspapers. "That was my first memory of the Lions", he said. The duo's England colleague Elliot Daly was also at the forefront of an impressive team performance and received a name check from Gatland afterwards.

Gatland said: "It just hadn't happened for Jack in the first couple of games". But against the Chiefs the Exeter man finally delivered with a non-stop two try performance.

"They are experts in electronic surveillance, to ensure that we are not being looked at or listened to", Feehan told Britain's Daily Telegraph newspaper.

"I think [we find out] sometime on Wednesday".

At least Gatland has more options now and some of those options have a bit of form behind them.

The Lions scored four tries - the most they have managed on the tour so far - against the Chiefs.

Now come the big final decisions for Gatland.

"We're very happy, this was a tough fixture", Lions captain Rory Best said.

"There are a lot of leaders in the group and everybody helps each other and pushes each other on. Those games, those challenges are what we need to learn from and be able to step up for this pack at the weekend, which is the best in the world".
