On Tuesday night, the British and Irish Lions wrapped up their fourth win in as many games on their tour of Australia with a 64-0 victory over a team that some sources like Joe.ie have dubbed "the butcher, the baker and candlestick maker XV."

Though it was an easy victory, the looseness of the second-half display will have disappointed the Lions players and coaches alike.

After storming to a 38-point lead at the half, the second half was strewn with handling errors and sloppiness at set pieces.

In the end, the Lions will have been happy to escape injury-free and having been in touch with the history of original Lions tour of 1888.

The sight of Sam Warburton laying a wreath at the grave of the first-ever Lions skipper, Robert Seddon who died in Newcastle, encapsulated just how deep the history of the Lion is.
