Too many Lions failed to turn up against the Springboks this summer, according to Will Kelleher for the Daily Mail.
The experienced rugby scribe has rated every Lion who played in the test series with these nine receiving his lowest marks.
Maro Itoje, given an 8.5, was given the highest mark despite the series defeat, with a consistently starring role making him a favourite to lead the tourists in 2025.
