Great Britain’s southern hemisphere tour has ended on a low, losing to New Zealand by 15 points and ending the three-match tour without a win.
New Zealand 23
Great Britain 8
The New Zealand Kiwis and Great Britain Lions will go head to head in the second of two Test matches after New Zealand were victorious on a scoreline of 12-8 last week. Join The Roar for live scores from the match at Christchurch Stadium on Saturday night, starting from 6pm AEDT.
It’s the last match of Great Britain’s first southern hemisphere tour in 12 years, and the Lions are desperate to get a win before they go home after so far losing to both Tonga and New Zealand.
Kieran Foran is a notable absentee for the New Zealanders this week after a shoulder injury, but they have brought back in the services of Shaun Johnson and Brandon Smith.
Winger Zak Hardaker will miss for the Lions, also sustaining a shoulder injury, and Wayne Bennett, coaching the team, has confirmed that Blake Austin will start on the wing.
With this being the final match of the series, we can hope that both sides will free themselves up a bit and create a more dynamic, free-flowing game than what we saw last week.
