The British and Irish Lions tour in Australia has started on high with a mauling of the Western Force in Perth on Wednesday.
Acting captain Brian O’Driscoll led from the front by scoring two of the tries, having linked-up well with fellow centre Manu ‘Ferry-jumper’ Tuilagi.
The Lions looked hungry throughout the course of the match, and in particular Irish prop Cian Healy who in the 17th minute couldn’t hold-out for half-time snacks any longer by taking a bite of scrum-half Brett Sheeran’s arm.
Having only served to whet his appetite, he eventually had to fake an injury in order to get something more substantial and less hairy off the field of play.
Apparently head Lion’s coach Warren Gatland is now rethinking his strategy of starving his players for 2 days pior to each match.
