The British and Irish Lions ended their tour on a high note with a Test victory over the World Champions, ending their run of seven straight defeats and hopefully ending all talk of their lack of future.
The 28-9 win is no more than they deserved after coming so close to clinching the Second Test to keep the series alive. But whilst this result should be celebrated, it does enhance the pain at having come so close to a series win.
The 2009 Lions Tour is now over, and sadly we have to wait another four years to see them in action again. Having avoided a series whitewash, optimism is now high that 2013 will see the next series victory in Australia.
We’ll be bringing you more reactions and reflections on what has been a great tour, but for now, let us have your thoughts on the Third Test result and the tour in general.
