Video: Lions score penalty try after strong scrum

The Lions scored the first try of the match after a very strong scrum right on the Maori try line which resulted in a penalty try.

The Lions opted to turn down the three points and go for the try with a powerful scrum close to the whitewash.

It proved to be the right decision by the Lions as they forced the Maoris to turn it illegally which resulted in the penalty try.

The try was a crucial moment in the contest as the Lions started firing on all cylinders and went over again three minutes late through Maro Itoje.

Warren Gatland’s side eventually ran out 32-10 victors against the Maoris just one week before the first test against the All Blacks at Eden Park.
