Hot off the press!

Lions looking dangerous in the first half

(T: Sexton, O'Driscoll, Croft; C: Halfpenny 3; P: Halfpenny 2)

The biggest talking point of that half was the injury to Healy, but on more positive matters there have been some good signs for the Lions.

They had a rocky patch midway through the half but ended strongly and have scored more points than they managed against the Barbarians in the first half of the opening Test of the tour.

Irish duo O'Brien and Heaslip have both gone well in the back row while out wide North and Bowe have both looked threatening. Sexton is running the show with a minimum of fuss, O'Driscoll is showing us why he is captain and Halfpenny's kicking is a thing of beauty.
