After the somewhat stuttering first match the Lions are looking strong.

Even though in the last tour the mid-week games (Maori aside) were won, generally comfortably, I definitely feel like this is indicative of a close series with the Boks (if only because this side might actually have a bearing on the Test side).

Whilst I’ll obviously want to laud the Irish performance from what I read and saw the Welsh boys deserve a fair portion of the plaudits.

Either way this tour definitely has a good feel about it – especially as we now have the prospect of an Irish 10-15 on the cards…
