Lions bury brittle Barbarians

Mike Phillips starred for the British and Irish Lions in Hong Kong.

The Welsh scrumhalf scored twice as the Lions strolled to a 59-8 win against a second rate international team.

The Lions scored eight tries in a one-sided romp.

Springbok hooker Schalk Brits was given an early yellow card for punching club teammate Owen Farrell, but that was as confrontational as this contest got.

British & Irish Lions – Tries: Paul O’Connell, Mike Phillips (2), Jonathan Davies, Alex Cuthbert (2), Dan Lydiate, Alun Wyn Jones. Conversions: Owen Farrell (3), Jonathan Sexton (2). Penalties: Farrell (3).
Barbarians – Try: Kahn Fotuali’i. Penalty: Elliot Daly.
