The Lions 3 best and 3 worst players against the Stormers

#1. Luke Cowan-Dickie

Planet Rugby 9: “Excellent showing by the Exeter hooker. Unlucky to have an early try disallowed but made up for it before the first half was over with a fine finish. Faultless at line-outs and made plenty of metres during his 49-minute outing.”

Off The Ball 9: “He was brilliant over the ball, not always making turnovers, but he was involved in almost all of them. He scored a good try, and was a leader on the pitch as well. It is very possible that he played his way into a starting jersey next week.”

Rugby Pass 8: “His ability to strip and pilfer ball is world-class and he was a huge problem in pretty much every facet of the game for the Stormers.”

Wales Online 9: “The stand out performer for the Lions. A huge statement ahead of the first Test. Great turnover menace, tackled anything that moved and burst brilliantly off a spinning ruck in the 34 th minute to score the Lions’ second try.”

WORST PLAYERS:

#3. Elliot Daly

Pundit Arena 6: The Englishman showed lovely hands for a van der Merwe break in the early half, but like Adams he wasn’t given much opportunity.

Wales Online 5: One giant booming kick to touch showed his value in that area but after being stepped by Cheslin Kolbe in midweek his defence was exposed again with several Stormers players slipping through him.

Joe 6: Fell off two of his three tackle attempts.

Planet Rugby 6: “The versatile England ace made his third start of the tour at 13 and is growing into his new role but must improve in defence.”
