The British and Irish Lions may have lost 30-15 to New Zealand in the First Test in Auckland, but fans will certainly remember Sean O’Brien’s incredible try.
Just when everyone started to think the All Blacks were becoming pretty much unstoppable at Eden Park – the Lions put up an explosive show.
👊 What. A. Try.
Trailing 13-3, Ireland flanker O’Brien pounced four minutes before half-time, finishing off a spectacular 80-metre move that was started by full-back Liam Williams’ dazzling running.
Fans in the stadium were rejoicing:
The Lions fans in Auckland certainly enjoyed that try... #AllForOne
As were Lions supporters on the internet who were pretty ecstatic:
Brilliant try by the Lions. 👊#LionsNZ0217— Piers Morgan (@piersmorgan) June 24, 2017
What a magnificent try by the Lions. Liam Williams sensational from full back. Great tracking by Sean O'Brien to get that try. A game now.— Matt Cooper (@cooper_m) June 24, 2017
Lions fans reckon it’s one of the best tries they have ever seen:
What a try, the best test try I have ever seen!!!! Come on #lionsnz17— Olly Benbow (@bingbonggb) June 24, 2017
The Lions did put up a strong fight, but in the end, the better team won.
And so the wait for a Test victory over the All Blacks – they last achieved one 24 years ago – goes on.
