“We would have won 3-0” – Three players who criticised Warren Gatland after Lions tours

“The first two Tests we played off nine for two phases and I kind of felt that played into their defence.

“We weren’t doing much out of the back of it. We were keeping the attack narrow instead of having a wide attack.

“The first ten minutes of the third Test, there was still quite a bit of kicking and a lot of play off nine.

“There wasn’t much rugby that actually got played.
