NZ Barbarians 7 The Lions 13 3 June 2017 Marks Out of 10 and Summary

Well, that was a struggle.

Best player : well Falatea was awesome MOM.  I thought that Sinckler did well too

Worst player : Sexton

Worst / unusual moment : Hogg butchering that try scoring opportunity.

Anyway, here are my overall thoughts and marks out of 10

Hogg 5 arrogant and needs a good kicking
Seymour 5 anonymous and not Lions class
Joseph 5 poor
T’eo  7 good touches and pace and power
Watson 7 reliable all round and took his try well
Sexton 4 tried far too hard and was off his game in all respects
Laidlaw 7 steady match
Marler 6 ok
Best 5 anonymous, not good enough
Sinckler 8 excellent
AWJ 7 decent
Henderson 5 anonymous
Moriarty 7 prominent and did himself no harm at all
Warburton 6 steady
Falatea 9 excellent MOM

Farrell 8 made a huge difference
Webb 7 quick and adds dynamism
Mako 8 quality
George 7 added pace
Furlong 7 strong and a good ball player like Sinckler
Kruis 7 another to make a difference
Tipuric no score as not on for long enough

The Barbarians – very enterprising and played very well

Gatland ran the show. Passing kicking and general awareness plus he plays the game at pace. His replacement also played well
