Three Lions players who failed to perform – and who should replace them


We pick three players who we think deserve a chance in the British & Irish Lions team in the second test after some stars failed to impress.

#1. Elliot Daly

Balls 5/10: “Really struggled with the South African rush defence and looked uncomfortable in a position he has not played much. Missed 3 tackles.”

Irish Examiner 5/10: “Am won the battle of the outside centres and apart from giving away a few penalties he had little impact on the game.”

Wales Online 5/10: “Rag-dolled by Lukhanyo Am early on, then penalised twice for not releasing in a tackle and playing the ball on the floor – the latter costing three points. One 55m penalty attempt that fell just short.”

Joe 4/10: “His poor first half ended with a long, missed penalty attempt. Finished up with 0 metres gained on six carries and missed three tackle.”

Rugby Pass 5/10: “He’s mixed the sublime with the ridiculous on this tour, but this was more the latter. Gatland’s gamble at 13 didn’t pay off.”

Replacement: Bundee Aki
