British and Irish Lions too strong for determined Waratahs in Sydney

first_imgSunday Jun 16, 2013 British and Irish Lions too strong for determined Waratahs in Sydney It’s been an eventful weekend for the British and Irish Lions off the field but on it, they beat the Waratahs 47-17 in one of their best performances thus far on the tour. Since then three new players have been called into the squad. Leigh Halfpenny contributed 30 points as the Lions claimed their fifth successive tour victory.Despite the Lions almost scoring through Simon Zebo very early on, the Waratahs put up a good fight and were in the game for a long period of time before the visitors took control and scored some excellent tries, later running away with the victory.Halfpenny scored twice and kicked eight kicks from eight attempts, further cementing his spot at first choice fullback for the Test series.“It was a good effort and we’re very pleased about the outcome,” said Warren Gatland. “To be fair the Waratahs took it to us but I think the boys handled it magnificently (and) in the end we were just too big and too powerful for them.”On the downside, Jamie Roberts limped off with a suspected torn hamstring. Three players have since been called into the squad, with Brad Barritt, Christian Wade and Shane Williams all set to play in their midweek game against the Brumbies. Billy Twelvetrees will also start.
