First blood to British & Irish Lions over Springboks

SA Rugby


Springbok coach Jacques Nienaber says the British & Irish Lions outplayed them in the second half by dominating the aerial battle, which is something the South Africans can fix before Saturday's second Test in the Castle Lager Lions Series.

Nienaber, reflecting on the 22-17 defeat by his team in the first Test at Cape Town Stadium, said the visitors’ second half effort was telling.

“The kicking game was won by us in the first half and we got the rewards, but the second half was a different story,” said Nienaber.

“They won that battle and it gave them territory, advantage in broken field play and we had to scramble, and could not cope.”

Nienaber felt the Boks’ 12-3 lead at half-time was deserved, but he did not expect the Lions to bounce back in the second half the way they did.
