The British & Irish Lions beat the Stormers 49-3. The match scored the return of Alun Wyn Jones, after his shoulder injury, to the European team.
In a triumph without objection, the British & Irish Lions ended their preparation matches on their South African tour and awaited the first Test Match against the Springboks, next Saturday in Cape Town. Little could Stormers do, that despite opening the score with a Tim Swiel penalty, he was largely outmatched by the European cast, having to defend for most of the match.
With a total of seven tries through Adam Beard, Luke Cowan Dickie, Jonny Hill, Jack Conan, Zander Fagerson, Louis Rees-Zammit and Sam Simmonds, those led by Warren Gatland reaped a new victory against another South African franchise and now it will be time to prepare for the test against South Africa.
The best of the game for the winners was, without a doubt, the return of captain Alun Wyn Jones, who entered in the second half, and after being ruled out for the tour in the previous friendly against Japan, he managed to recover in record time and may be taken into account by Gatland to face the most demanding part of the journey on African soil.
With five wins and one loss, it is the turn of the crosses against the Springboks for the British & Irish Lions. Undoubtedly the best measure for a team full of figures that today, beyond the triumph, was able to recover its main warrior.
