Former Welsh centre Tom Shanklin has revealed the British and Irish Lions game plan during their 2005 series against the All Blacks which includes instructions to ‘win the Bully contest’ and target the likes of Richie McCaw, Tana Umaga and Justin Marshall.
The instructions for Clive Woodward’s men include ‘target Umaga/McCaw/Marshall’, ‘target the 12/13 channel’ and ‘target McCaw in all phases.’
