Lions Beat Crusaders

June 11, 2017

The British and Irish Lions have won their third game on this New Zealand tour with a 12-3 victory over the Crusaders.

The Lions enjoyed the majority of possession against an in-accurate Crusaders side, who had not lost a game so far this season in Super Rugby.

In the first 20 minutes alone the Crusaders copped five turnovers, five penalties and missed three line-out opportunities at AMI Stadium.

Despite the poor execution from the home side and around 65% of the ball, the Lions could only lead 9-3 at halftime.

The second half was more as the same as the Lions kicked a lot of ball and applied pressure on the Crusaders back three. Despite a dominant scrum the Crusaders were unable to apply an pressure back on the Lions and they ran out deserved winners.

The next game for the Lions is against the Highlanders in Dunedin.
