From a superb first half to a poor second half, in a game they could have lost the midweek Lions tour has ended. Gatland has to be questioned not using his “geography 6”. Henderson was superb and deserves to be in the squad for Saturday, the stand out Lion in this game. Hats off to the front row for playing the 80 mins too.
My 23 for Saturday will no doubt be different form Gatland’s but here goes.
1-15 Vunipola, George, Furlong, Itoje, AWJ, O Mahony, O Brien, Faletau, Murray, Sexton, Daly, Te’o, Davies, Watson, Williams.
Replacements: Owens, McGrath, Sinckler, Lawes, Henderson, Webb, Farrell & Halfpenny
But I feel Gatts will put O Mahony on the bench, to bring in his pet Warburton with O Brien moving to 7. Which means Henderson will probably lose out.
