Granted, it wasn’t the British & Irish Lions finest hour in the second test – but surely the player ratings from Wales Online are a bit on the harsh side.
The Welsh publication held nothing back in its scathing assessment of Warren Gatland’s charges, who came up short in the second test against the Springboks.
No fewer than four players received 3/10.
WALES ONLINE PLAYER RATINGS:
- 15 . Stuart Hogg (Scotland) – 4
- 14. Anthony Watson (England) – 4
- 11. Duhan van de Merwe (Scotland) – 3
On Hogg: “ Just too many mistakes, not least in the aerial battle.”
On van de Merwe: “Yellow carded for a daft trip on Cheslin Kolbe in a benign area of the field, harassed under the high ball and couldn’t make the yardage he has previously. Might Josh Adams now get his chance?”Embed from Getty Images
- 13. Chris Harris (Scotland) – 5
- 12. Robbie Henshaw (Ireland) – 5
