    The British & Irish Lions face a gruelling 10-game tour of New Zealand, including three Tests against the All Blacks. ESPN will be there with full, up-to-date coverage every step of the way.

After a couple of scratchy outings Jack Nowell found some form as the Exeter wing scored two of the Lions’ four tries.

While much of the tour has highlighted the dominance of the Lions pack, the back three of Nowell, Elliot Daly and Liam Williams expressed themselves with some lovely touches.

Courtney Lawes also impressed despite getting a second head knock within a week to give Warren Gatland food for thought ahead of selecting his side for the first Test.

Here’s how some prominent figures reacted to the game on social media.

Lawes immense so far this tour. Best he’s ever played. Nowell back too.

Don’t care how they win, so long as they win! But so good to see the back scoring some beaut tries this morning.
