Farrell kicks Lions to win over Crusaders in New Zealand tour match

Farrell kicks Lions to win over Crusaders in New Zealand tour match

That has been challenging for us all.

'I don't think it's a pressure situation, it's a group that needs to keep on building and the message to the boys this morning about Tuesday is we're building our plan, the things that we do behind the scenes as well as what we do on the pitch. "We'll wait for the outcome but I would think at this moment in time, we've got a pretty big squad and we've got a lot of people in place to cover different positions".

The Crusaders threatened to heap more worries on Warren Gatland's side as they almost went over the whitewash with minutes remaining in the first half. "We knew we had trained well in the last couple of days and we knew we would put in a good performance".

"And sometimes that brings out the best in me as a competitor in sport".

On Saturday, the tourists prevented the Crusaders, Super Rugby's leading side, from scoring a try, despite the hosts recording an average of 37 points per game this season.

Gatland believes the Lions can now push their tour onto new levels after securing a hugely-important and morale-boosting victory.

Lions coach Warren Gatland named a completely new starting 15 on Sunday and the New Zealander can expect another bruising test of his side's credentials with the three-match series against the All Blacks looming on the horizon.

Trump Boasts About Republican Wins in Special Congressional Elections
Ms Handel, 55, will become the first Republican woman to represent Georgia in the US House, according to state party officials. Earlier this year, Republicans won special elections in Montana and Kansas , while a Democrat won a race in California.

Five-eighth Owen Farrell slotted four penalties, including three in the first half.

Sam Warburton will captain the British & Irish Lions against the Highlanders on Tuesday night. "I saw some positive rugby, players moving the ball to try and stress them".

The Crusaders botched early lineouts and ran foul of the scrum interpretations of French referee Mathieu Raynal.

"We're still waiting on a report back on Stuart Hogg, so we'll get that later this afternoon", said assistant coach Andy Farrell on Monday in Dunedin.

Hogg was injured in an accidental collion with Conor Murray.

"And he was looking risky, on outside breaks and things".

Their matches tend to be open and high-scoring and they will have All Blacks flyhalf Lima Sopoaga and winger Waisake Naholo among a unsafe crop of backs ready to capitalise on any lapses in the touring side's defensive line.

"We've got machines where we plug them in and there's a programme that you set and it's filled with ice, and you put it in an insulated bag so the ice doesn't melt overnight".

"The law says there must be a small gap; they don't play to the law of the game".

There were fears Warburton's injury would see him miss this Tuesday's clash in Dunedin, but he is passed fit to captain the team from openside.

Gatland insists there is better to come.

Asked if he learned anything new from the Lions' performance, Robertson said: "No".

"You look at the players and you see them but you just stand there, and give them respect".

"I know there's some discussion about engagement, the ruling says you must have a small gap and in Super Rugby they pre-load", said Gatland.
