British & Irish Lions thrash the Golden Lions in Johannesburg

British & Irish Lions thrash the Golden Lions in Johannesburg

The British and Irish Lions ran riot at Ellis Park earlier tonight as they romped to a 74-10 victory over the Golden Lions in Johannesburg.

Scoring 10 tries and looking a far improved unit from the side that struggled to beat the Royal XV last weekend, the British & Irish Lions found plenty of gaps in the home sides lacklustre defence.

Looking uninspired and generally disappointing, the Golden Lions simply didnt turn up, looking disorganised and leaderless. Perhaps thats not surprising following coach Loffie Eloff being sacked just last week.

It was a case of how good were the visitors, or how bad were the home side? Probably a combination of both, as the men in red hit their straps with the center pairing of Brian ODriscoll and Jamie Roberts looking like a serious contender for Test honours.

Roberts, Tommy Bowe, and Ugo Monye all claimed two tries a piece, while captain ODriscoll, Tom Croft, James Hook, and Stephen Ferris all crossed the tryline.

Stephen Jones kicked 18 points, with substitute Hook coming on and kicking three late conversions, resulting in a record win over the Johannesburg based side.
