LIST: 3 Lions players who did their test chances no favours this weekend

Josh Adams scored four tries as the British and Irish Lions saw off the Sigma Lions in impressive style in their tour opener in Johannesburg.

There were plenty of standout stars for the tourists – but these three players did their chances of earning a test jersey no favours.

#1. Jonny Hill

  • Age: 27
  • Position: Lock
  • Standout stat: 2 missed tackled & 1 turnover conceded

OFF THE BALL (4/10): “Perhaps almost to annoy the Irish supporters watching, Jonny Hill was near to anonymous on the park against the Sigma Lions. He was heavily involved at the breakdown, but offered little in terms of carries or on defence.”

Joe (6/10): “Not the only one out there to misplace a pass, but he did it twice to cough up possession. Made some hard carries as the Lions wrung out the game in the second half.”

Rugby Pass (6/10): “The intent was there but he had a few sloppy moments with ball in hand. Will want to make more of an impact if he is to challenge for a Test spot, as he didn’t quite put his hand up here..”

Wales Online (6/10): “Had told during the build-up how his first hole in one on the golf course launched the sporting year for him. This was a par performance.”
