it’s touch and go whether Sam Warburton will be lead­ing out the Bri­tish & Irish Lions into the first Test against the All Blacks to­day (k-o 8.35am), even though he’s now of­fi­cially fit. There have been rum­blings of dis­con­tent about the play­ing style of the Lions by their more at­tack-minded op­po­nents, but the fact that the Lions achieved a fine re­sult against the Cru­saders, who have one of the most lethal at­tacks in Su­per Rugby, has shown there re­ally is more than one way to skin a cat. Eng­land’s Owen Far­rell had an ex­cel­lent game: even though he was forced to move po­si­tions 30 min­utes into the game, his kick­ing and dis­tri­bu­tion were de­cid­ing fac­tors. Will that be the case against the mighty All Blacks, though?
