The 15 pictures that sum up the British and Irish Lions' 6-34 win over the Chiefs

A light-hearted look back at what was the Lions' biggest win of the Tour so far

By Gareth Hanna

Rory Best was captain, Jared Payne a try-scorer - the Lions' greatest margin of victory so-far was in no small part thanks to Ulstermen.

Iain Henderson put in another impressive performance as well, forcing a penalty try and creating one of Jack Nowell's scores. Now it wouldn't be quite fair to say it was ALL down to our lads - but we'll try and claim it anyway.

From a Pokemon impression to a bathroom dilemma and a new toilet seat cover for Rory Best, have a look at our 15 top photos from the 6-34 victory over the Chiefs.

STORY OF THE MATCH: Chiefs 6-34 British and Irish Lions - Jared Payne scores late try as Lions seal their biggest win of Tour so far

Nowell scored two tries while a penalty-try and a finishing touch by Payne racked up a convincing total for the Lions, all added to by 14 points off the boot of Dan Biggar. It certainly wasn't a bad way to warm-up for Saturday's first Test against the All Blacks in Auckland.
