More to come from the Lions, says Hibbard


British and Irish Lions hooker Richard Hibbard has insisted there is more to come from the side despite their unbeaten start to the tour of Australia.

The Lions comfortably beat the Combined Country XV 64-0 yesterday, running in ten tries in the process after victories over the Queensland Reds and Western Force.

Hibbard was one of the try scorers in the emphatic win but admitted the performance of the Lions was not the greatest.

He told BBC Sport: "There were a lot of positives in the first half. We let a few tries slip in the second half, which is very disappointing... there is so much more to come from us."

The Lions next game comes on Saturday when they travel to Sydney to face the New South Wales Waratahs before the first test against Australia on June 22.

There is a total of three test matches against the Wallabies with the others being on June 29 and July 6.

The Lions started their tour in Hong Kong by beating the Barbarians before beating Western Force 69-15 in their first game Down Under.

The toughest match of the tour came on Saturday when the Lions were 22-12 victors over Queensland Reds before the comfortable win yesterday.
