The British and Irish Lions sign off for another four years in the Third Test tomorrow after two of the greatest Lions tests against South Africa.
It’s difficult to know how the game will be played tomorrow. Lions’ players thoughts will surely be turning to home, and a few weeks of rest after such a long season. There may be some yearning for revenge from those that featured in the earlier Tests, whilst the debutants will be playing proudly for their injured comrades.
South Africa appear to be using the game as a trial match before the Tri-Nations kicks off on July 18th. In that respect, the Springboks will be something of an unknown quantity, and the result is very difficult to predict.
I can see many different scenarios, but I’ve sticking to my guns and backing the Lions to prevent a series whitewash through steely determination.
What do you think? A Lions victory to banish the talk of their losing streak? Or a South African clean sweep?
