New Zealand outplayed British & Irish Lions in the first of three test matches with a convincing of 30-15 on Saturday night in Auckland. The Lions started the game in good shape but once New Zealand got going there was no stopping the world champions. Lions will have play out of their skin to win the remaining two test and win the series which looks highly unlikely considering the way New Zealand are playing.

Short Match Highlights:
British and Irish Lions finally take on New Zealand in one of the most anticipated rugby game of this year on Saturday, 24 June 2017 starting at around 08:35 uk time. The first test match against New Zealand will be taking place at Eden Park Stadium in Auckland and SKySports has live coverage rights of entire Lions Tour 2017.
The Lions have already lost twice in the opening four tour games and that kind of put them under pressure going into the first test against New Zealand which takes place on Saturday, 24th June. Their most recent outing was against Highlanders where they threw away a massive lead to lost 23-22.
British & Irish Lions vs Maori All Blacks Preview: The Lions are sweating on the fitness of Owen Farrell who is more than likely to miss out on the place in starting lineup with Dan Biggar replacing him. Johnny Sexton and Peter O’Mahony set to start against Maori in what will be the first competitive test for The Lions.
The result of this game will pretty much show how well prepared are the lions to take on world champions New Zealand. Owen Ferrel’s injury is a cause of concern but he should be fit to start when the real test against All Blacks starts next week.
