Lions on track after beating Waratahs

The British and Irish Lions are on track for a great test series after they convincingly beat the Waratahs 17-47  in front of a packed Allianz Stadium on Saturday night.

The Lions scored five tries and enjoyed another awesome night with the boot after fullback Leigh Halfpenny scored 3o points (including two tries), giving the visitors their biggest win over the Waratahs in 125 years of visiting Australia.

The big win had some gloss taken off it with Welsh centre Jamie Roberts suffering a knee injury which forced him from the field in the final 10 minutes and has put him in doubt for the start of the three-Test series this coming weekend.

Lions skipper Sam Warburton said that it was a tough game and that the scoreboard didn’t reflect the match.

“The Waratahs play like us and were very direct but we won the collisions to win the match.

“Next week will be immensely tough against the Wallabies and there will be an edge. It will be game on.”

The Lions are now unbeaten in their five games of the tour so far, and are now looming as an unstoppable force for the Wallabies to face this coming Saturday.
