Our Combined Lions & All Blacks XV Following Their Thrilling Series
What a bloody series.
The All Blacks and Lions didn’t disappoint this summer, with one of the greatest series in recent memory. At the end of the three games, neither side could be separated and it’s probably fitting as neither deserved to lose.
The world champions looked set for a series whitewash after a comfortable win in the 1st Test. But credit to the Lions, they fought back and secured a famous win in Wellington and held on in the return to Eden Park.
There was a lot of standout players in the series and when coming up with a combined XV, things are almost as even as the series itself. Here’s out crack at putting an XV together.
