The British and Irish Lions narrowly avoided humiliation

"Further humiliation" would have been more accurate as a 6pts win against part-timers IS humiliating. Sort of expected the kiwis to match the Lions on skills but certainly not at the set piece which they did both at scrumtime & lineout.

The Super Rugby franchises will be excited I bet. Hopefully the Lions will take some lessons from it and gel a bit better at set piece. I thought their loosies and Te'o went okay.

It certainly wasn't the 30 - 40 point victory we were after, was it goldorak?

Haha it sure wasn't RM! Didn't think the crème de la crème of British and Irish rugby would struggle (even jet-lagged, tired or whatever they want to call it) against semi-pros who'd been together for a week or so.  

Massive fan of Duffie and the Ioane bros here, can't wait for Wednesday's game vs Blues. Lions better turn up though or this could get really ugly.
