Lions Star On The Two Irishmen That Will Cause The All Blacks Serious Problems
“They are completely mental.”
James Haskell reckons the All Blacks should be concerned about Peter O’Mahony and Sean O’Brien when they take them on this Saturday. O’Brien is expected to be named in place of tour captain Sam Warburton for the first Test this evening, with O’Mahony in line for the captaincy.
Both players have been receiving critical acclaim foe their roles in the Lions’ wins over the Crusaders and the Maori All Blacks, with Haskell branding them “completely mental.”
“It’s probably Sean O’Brien or Peter O’Mahony that I’d be slightly concerned about – not necessarily because of the physical thing, but because they are completely mental,” Haskell told the Press Association.
“I’ve been sharing a room with Sean all tour and we’ve bonded, to say the least.
“But it’s those two I’d have to put my hand up and say I’d be concerned about.”
Gatland names his team at 8pm this evening for the heavyweight clash at Eden Park.
