Does the man know the meaning of the term exhibition? Tuesday's game was basically a exhibition for the Lions, but you couldn't tell that by watching Brian O'Driscoll.
He was fighting for every ball right to the death and looked like a man who would not accept walking away from this tour defeated.
He is a certain starter at this stage, adding a touch of class and intelligence to a powerful back line.
His grubber kick for Davies' try (3.50 of this YouTube video) was pure class and shows, while he's lost a yard of pace, he's still as sharp as anyone upstairs.
I wrote last week that Tuesday's game could be the making or the breaking of the talented young Scot. Tasked with playing fly-half for the first time since he was a schoolboy he didn't look out of place at all.
He stood flat and took the ball at place, distributing the ball and attacking the line with equal aplomb. His play may give the coaches food for thought entering the first test.
Given how he took to the position, could the Lions opt to use him as cover for Jonny Sexton off the bench or even the the wing?
It would be a bold move, but it would give the Lions even more options in attack should they need them.
Set Piece Issues
Coming into the tour the set piece was supposed to be an area of huge strength for the Lions, both in the scrum and at the lineout. Now with injuries and loss of form, they look vulnerable in both areas.
Mako Vunipola is a fantastic prospect, but he is not a great scrummager which means, in the likely event he starts, the scrum will not be a means of attack.
As for the lineout, it's difficult to point to what the problem is. The jumpers all look in great form and are tormenting opposition ball, but they are struggling on their own.
All three of the hookers have been overthrowing their men way too often, and when they do hit their men, the ball is very scrappy.
Has a touring party ever had such strength in depth in the backrow. Any three of the eight men available could make the test side without anyone complaining.
Many people are backing Croft and Warburton, but that seems to be more on reputation than form. If picked on form, one couldn't look much further than O'Brien and Tipuric.
At the base of the scrum, Jamie Heaslip looks to have pulled ahead of Toby Faletau, but that battle is also too close to call.
In the end, it will all come down to how the Lions plan to approach the game. They have the luxury of being able to pick horses for courses.
