The 2013 British and Irish Lions made a very competent start to their tour with an eight try, 59-8 victory. The Lions dominated every aspect of the game. They secured 67% of the possession and a devastating 72% of the territory – if they had secured any more territory in Hong Kong it may have constituted an ‘invasion’ under UN protocols. The glut of possession meant that the Lions strike runners broke the line at will – Mike Phillips and Jamie Roberts in particular made five clean breaks and beat eight defenders between them – more than the Barbarians squad combined.
