5 Lions stars who failed to perform in the second test – and who should replace them


We pick five players who we think deserve a chance in the British & Irish Lions team in the third test after some stars failed to impress in the second test defeat.

#1. Stuart Hogg

Rugby Pass 5.5/10: “Scrappy-dappy-do from Hogg here, who struggled in the air, especially in the first half.”

Telegraph 4/10: “Targeted by South Africa’s kicking, at restarts and in open play, and did not convince at any stage. Failed to find room in phase-play, as well.”

Balls 5/10: “Struggled at times to deal with the aerial bombardment and some uncharacteristic errors. Poor tackle effort for the South African 1st try.”

Wales Online 4/10: “Turned over while counter-attacking after taking an up and under leading to Pollard’s second penalty.”

Irish Examiner 3/10: “This was a really poor outing for Hogg, who struggled under the high ball – not good against this Springbok side. “

Replacement: Liam Williams
