Lions player ratings: how the tourists fared in South Africa series

Backs

Stuart Hogg (Exeter, Scotland) Thrilled to make the Test bunch – at last – on his third Lions visit. Will not recall the second Test with gigantic happiness, lamentably. ★★

Anthony Watson (Bath, England) Looked sharp in the typical games yet had a limited impact in the underlying two Tests. Not the most easy series wherein to be a winger. ★★

Liam Williams (Scarlets, Wales) Finally picked to start in the last Test and had his minutes, without being absolutely at his best. His decision not to pass to the plain Josh Adams was a series-indispensable defining moment. ★★

Josh Adams (Cardiff, Wales) Ripped it up in the normal games and justified his Test assurance. First Lion to notice the presentation of his first child over the web. ★★★

Elliot Daly (Saracens, England) Had he made it on to the field in the last Test he would have featured in each visit game. Close by Jamie George, contributed almost as much energy making coffees the chaps. ★★★

Chris Harris (Gloucester, Scotland) Justified his visit assurance and deservedly picked for the ensuing Test. Not his issue that he barely got a pass. ★★★Robbie Henshaw (Leinster, Ireland) The meeting side didn’t make enough behind the scrum regardless, when he had beaten a touchy hamstring, the Leinster center was the Lions’ most consistent Lions three-quarter. ★★★★

Bundee Aki (Connacht, Ireland) The Lions could never totally pick their ideal midfield. Aki and Henshaw ended up being their most compromising attacking combo. ★★★

Duhan van der Merwe (Worcester, Scotland) By no means incredible aside from underlined in the third Test why Gatland picked him. Stood up truly to everything threw at him. ★★★

Dan Biggar (Northampton, Wales) Great communicator and a Gatland most cherished who started all of the three Tests. In any case, would an all the more sure methodology have yielded an unrivaled series result? ★★★

Owen Farrell (Saracens, England) The England boss would have needed to play significantly more noteworthy on-field work. Unstinting gathering man as regular yet his avoidance from third Test group will have stung. ★★

Finn Russell (Racing 92, Scotland) Picked to add some different option from what’s generally anticipated and showed his extent of capacities in the last Test. Moreover kicked his targets and was basically the star of the entire show on Saturday. ★★★

Ali Price (Glasgow, Scotland) Perhaps the upwardly flexible story of the visit. Flew out as the conceivable number-three scrum-half, just to develop himself as the undisputed number one. ★★★

Conor Murray (Munster, Ireland) More highs and lows than a clamoring festival interest. Had been depended upon to be among the Lions’ focal conductors once more and again fought to raise the beat. ★★

Advances

Luke Cowan-Dickie (Exeter, England) A steady wad of dynamic energy and reserved the privilege to start the underlying two Tests. Scorer of one of the Lions’ two endeavors in the series. ★★★
