- Sigma Lions 14-56 British & Irish Lions
- Tourists run in eight tries in emphatic victory
The grand old Springbok citadel of Ellis Park has rarely been more achingly empty, but the British & Irish Lions will take significant heart from this opening foray on South African soil. The scoreboard does not lie: the touring side are up and running and showing sufficient early promise to suggest they will create problems with ball in hand in the coming weeks.
While not everything went to hand, as is invariably the case with players still growing accustomed to each other, the tempo at which the Lions sought to play was highly encouraging, resulting in a hefty haul of four tries for Josh Adams on the left wing and a debut score for the touring side’s youngest player, the 20-year-old Louis Rees-Zammit.
