Big Tests for Lions

One of the fascinations of modern sport is the degree to which powerful opponents will try to unsettle one another with “mind games”.

Sir Alex Ferguson was adept at this at Manchester United, and now the British and Irish Lions are locked in their own mind games with allegations of the Australians “spying” on them.

This is all part of the build-up to the Tests series which the Lions still have a good chance of winning, despite their injuries. So it’s now time to “roll on the First Test” where both sides will have an opportunity to do their talking on the pitch.
