At the end of their broadcast on Saturday, Sky Sports put together a montage to mark their 25-year involvement with the Lions. It was all in there, Matt Dawson’s feint, Jason Robinson’s foot-work, Brian O’Driscoll’s break and, of course, that tackle four years later followed by some sumptuous brilliance from Dan Carter.

There was Rob Kearney’s try and Morné Steyn’s 2009 match-winner, George North’s moment of brilliance and Seán O’Brien finishing the try from the end of the world four years’ ago.
