There has been a lot of negative press surrounding the Lions so we’ve decided to look at five players who’ve actually looked quite good in their opening two fixtures….
1. Taulupe Faletau
His try-saving tackle in the first half against the Provincial Barbarians was outstanding and he’s been the best runner we’ve seen in a Lions shirt so far. He took the game by the scruff of the neck and is nailed on to be in theTest XV.
What stood out was the England lock’s line speed in defence. It was ferociously quick, while his immense physicality in defence and ball carrying also impressed. Hard to believe he’s the youngest man on the tour.
