Almost time for kick-off as the teams come out the tunnel, time for the Maori to lay down the challenge to the visitors. This should be a super clash.
  • -8
For British and Irish Lions: Ben Te'o was impressive in the midfield against the Crusaders and he could book his spot in the team for the first Test with another polished performance this weekend. Flyhalf Jonathan Sexton will need a big performance ahead of the first Test, especially if Owen Farrell is still unfit by then. No.8 Taulupe Faletau has been the best Lions player so far in this series and he will be the go-to-man to get over the advantage line once again.
  • -10
For Maori All Blacks: Look no further than the backline, which boasts some of the most exciting talents in New Zealand at the moment. Damian McKenzie, who has dazzled in the fullback position in the last three seasons, will run the show from No.10, while Wings Rieko Ioane and Nehe Milner-Skudder are lethal finishers out wide. James Lowe, who is at fullback, is unlucky not to be an All Black yet as he has shown in Super Rugby that he is one of the most talented and skillful players in New Zealand at the moment.
  • -15
Like the Crusaders game, the clash with the Maori is being seen as an unofficial Test and the Lions can expect to have their defensive systems tested by a side with a reputation for free-flowing rugby. The backs contain three of the most elusive runners in New Zealand - Nehe Milner-Skudder, Rieko Ioane and Damian McKenzie - with All Blacks scrumhalf Tawera Kerr-Barlow to set them alight.
  • -20
Although Gatland has said he did not want to show his Test hand too early, he has telegraphed the core of his top line up by naming 11 players from the team that beat the Crusaders last weekend in the side to play the Maori. That includes keeping the loose-forward trio of Taulupe Faletau, Sean O'Brien and Peter O'Mahony at the expense of tour captain Sam Warburton, who is on the bench.
  • -25
Gatland had almost settled on his matchday 23 to face the All Blacks next weekend until Farrell's plight threw open the pivotal 10 slot. Ireland's Sexton, 31, the Lions' star when they toured Australia four years ago, had already been named to start against the Maori.Farrell was on the bench, possibly to partner Sexton in the second-half playmaker combination which the Lions used against the Crusaders. But if Farrell does not recover in a week then an out-of-form Sexton is likely to wear the 10 jersey in the first Test.

PREVIEW: Maori All Blacks v B&I Lions

Fri, 16 Jun 2017 05:38

IN THE SPOTLIGHT: The spotlight will be firmly on Jonathan Sexton when the British and Irish Lions play the Maori All Blacks on Saturday, with the Lions unsure if top flyhalf Owen Farrell will be fit for the first Test.

Farrell, the Lions' leading playmaker, was almost certain to start in the first Test against the All Blacks next weekend until he suffered a thigh strain at training on Thursday.

"He will be back on the field as soon as possible," was all assistant coach Steve Borthwick could offer as a heavily bandaged Farrell watched the Lions train on Friday.

It is an injury that usually sidelines a player for seven to 10 days. But Borthwick would not put a time frame on Farrell's return, saying: "He will be back as soon as he is able to be back."

Gatland had almost settled on his matchday 23 to face the All Blacks next weekend until Farrell's plight threw open the pivotal 10 slot. 

Ireland's Sexton, 31, the Lions' star when they toured Australia four years ago, had already been named to start against the Maori.

Farrell was on the bench, possibly to partner Sexton in the second-half playmaker combination which the Lions used against the Crusaders. 

But if Farrell does not recover in a week then an out-of-form Sexton is likely to wear the 10 jersey in the first Test.

"Johnny needs more rugby," Gatland admitted when he named his side to face the Maori. 

"He knows he hasn't been playing the best but he's got some mojo back and we wanted to give him the start."

Although Gatland has said he did not want to show his Test hand too early, he has telegraphed the core of his top line up by naming 11 players from the team that beat the Crusaders last weekend in the side to play the Maori. 

That includes keeping the loose-forward trio of Taulupe Faletau, Sean O'Brien and Peter O'Mahony at the expense of tour captain Sam Warburton, who is on the bench.

"He's well aware of the competition that's there at the moment," Gatland said.

"He fully understands that loose-forward trio went outstandingly well against the Crusaders.

"The challenge for them is doing it again, and if they do it again then we will sit down and make what we think is the right selection for the Test matches." 

Like the Crusaders game, the clash with the Maori is being seen as an unofficial Test and the Lions can expect to have their defensive systems tested by a side with a reputation for free-flowing rugby. 

The backs contain three of the most elusive runners in New Zealand - Nehe Milner-Skudder, Rieko Ioane and Damian McKenzie - with All Blacks scrumhalf Tawera Kerr-Barlow to set them alight. 

The Maori All Blacks beat the Lions 19-13 when they last toured 12 years ago, and coach Colin Cooper has drummed into his squad that they can do it again. 

"It will be about attacking holes and manipulating their defence," said McKenzie.

Players to watch:

For Maori All Blacks: Look no further than the backline, which boasts some of the most exciting talents in New Zealand at the moment. Damian McKenzie, who has dazzled in the fullback position in the last three seasons, will run the show from No.10, while Wings Rieko Ioane and Nehe Milner-Skudder are lethal finishers out wide. James Lowe, who is at fullback, is unlucky not to be an All Black yet as he has shown in Super Rugby that he is one of the most talented and skillful players in New Zealand at the moment.

For British and Irish Lions: Ben Te'o was impressive in the midfield against the Crusaders and he could book his spot in the team for the first Test with another polished performance this weekend. Flyhalf Jonathan Sexton will need a big performance ahead of the first Test, especially if Owen Farrell is still unfit by then. No.8 Taulupe Faletau has been the best Lions player so far in this series and he will be the go-to-man to get over the advantage line once again. 

Head to head: The British and Irish Lions have selected a powerful front row and second row and they look set to dominate the scrum and the line-outs against the Maori All Blacks. Jonathan Sexton is a world-class player and a very different flyhalf to Damian McKenzie, who is better known in the fullback position. The battle between the four wings is worth the ticket alone. Nehe Milner-Skudder, Rieko Ioane, Anthony Watson and George North are players that can light up any match.

Prediction: The British and Irish Lions look like they have an advantage up front and this is where they will try and lay a platform for victory. The Maori All Blacks have some world-class finishes out wide and they will throw the ball around quite a bit on Saturday. It will be a tight affair with the Maori All Blacks edging it by 10 points or less.

Teams: 

Maori All Blacks: 15 James Lowe, 14 Nehe Milner-Skudder, 13 Matt Proctor, 12 Charlie Ngatai, 11 Rieko Ioane, 10 Damian McKenzie, 9 Tawera Kerr-Barlow, 8 Liam Messam, 7 Elliot Dixon, 6 Akira Ioane, 5 Tom Franklin, 4 Joe Wheeler, 3 Ben May, 2 Ash Dixon (captain), 1 Kane Hames.

British and Irish Lions: 15 Leigh Halfpenny, 14 Anthony Watson, 13 Jonathan Davies, 12 Ben Te'o, 11 George North, 10 Jonathan Sexton, 9 Conor Murray, 8 Taulupe Faletau, 7 Sean O'Brien, 6 Peter O'Mahony (captain), 5 George Kruis, 4 Maro Itoje, 3 Tadhg Furlong, 2 Jamie George, 1 Mako Vunipola.
Replacements: 16 Ken Owens, 17 Jack McGrath, 18 Kyle Sinckler, 19 Iain Henderson, 20 Sam Warburton, 21 Greig Laidlaw, 22 Dan Biggar, 23 Elliot Daly.

Venue: International Stadium, Rotorua

B&I Lions sound warning with Maori demolition

Sat, 17 Jun 2017 08:00

MATCH REPORT: The British and Irish Lions issued a strong warning of their own, recording a comprehensive 32-10 win over New Zealand Maori in Rotorua on Saturday.

The morale-boosting victory comes a day after the All Blacks' 78-0 shut-out of Samoa and one week out from the first Test.

The Lions dominated all aspects of the game and had more than 80 percent of the territory in the second half - a clear sign of the stranglehold they had on the game.

Such was their overwhelming control, boosted by the scavenging of Sean O'Brien, that they also enjoyed more than 70 percent of possession.

After turning 12-10 ahead, a penalty try soon after half-time and try from lock Maro Itoje - when the Maori had a man in the sin-bin - gave the Lions complete control at a wet Rotorua.

Leigh Halfpenny scored 20 points - through six penalties and a conversion - to maintain his 100 percent goal-kicking record.

The Lions' confidence-boosting win, after last Tuesday's loss to the Highlanders and a week before they face the All Blacks, underscored how the first Test in Auckland will be a battle of contrasting styles.

While the All Blacks ran from all angles in their 12-try win over Samoa this past Friday, the clinical Lions stuck to their formula of mixing a kick-and-chase game from Conor Murray with strong driving forward play.

They had the better of the Maori in the air and at the breakdown, and they dominated the scrums in the second half.

But despite an abundance of ball and territory they struggled to beat a tenacious Maori defence and get across the line.

The Lions did, however, successfully shut down the Maori backs and young All Blacks Nehe Milner-Skudder, Rieko Ioane and Damian McKenzie - all considered exceptional ball-runners - had few opportunities.

The one time Milner-Skudder featured it produced the game's opening try, when he slipped through a gap and kicked ahead.

George North failed to field the ball, allowing Liam Messam to charge through and touch down on 12 minutes.

It was not until the Maori were down to 14 men, with scrumhalf Tawera Kerr-Barlow yellow-carded for a cheap shot on Halfpenny, that the Lions benefited with their two tries.

The first was a seven-point penalty try when the Maori forwards, already on a warning from referee Jaco Peyper, gave way in a five-metre scrum.

The second try went to Saracens lock Itoje, who barged over after another Maori scrum disintegrated.

While the pre-match focus was on the Lions' loose trio of Taulupe Faletau, O'Brien and Peter O'Mahony, it was Itoje who was the towering force among the forwards.

By the time Kerr-Barlow returned to the fray, the fight had gone out of his forward pack and the Lions forwards were able to rumble forward with confidence.

When the Maori had a full complement of 15 on the field, the Lions camped deep in enemy territory but they could not score a try.

Halfpenny landed four penalties in the first half with McKenzie converting Messam's try and kicking a penalty for the Maori.

In addition to the two tries in the second half for the Lions, Halfpenny added a further two penalties and a conversion.

Man of the match: YTou van look at the power of the forwards, both collectively and individually, with Maro Itoje perhaps marginally the best. However, the key plays were made among the backs. You have to acknowledge the boot of Leigh Halfpenny, but flyhalf Jonathan Sexton and scrumhalf Conor Murray were the most influential - with our award going to Murray.

Moment of the match: There is no doubt the penalty try in the 50th minute signalled the end of the Maori resistance and showed the true power f the Lions team.

Villain: There is no doubt that New Zealand Maori scrumhalf Tawera Kerr-Barlow is fortunate his yellow card was not red - as his cheap shot on Leigh Halfpenny could have caused serious damage. Liam Messam deserves an honourable mention for his constant off-the-ball niggle.
