The Lions Played The Barbarians In 1977 And It Was A Cracker

The Lions Played The Barbarians In 1977 And It Was A Cracker
By Will Slattery

Every time the Lions tour comes around people talk wistfully of the glory days back in the 70's when players like Edwards, Bennett, Gibson and Williams offloaded and sidestepped there way to great success. With the Lions taking on the Barbarians tomorrow, we thought this would be a great oppurtunity to show you just how ridiculously talented some of these players were. This is from when the Lions played the Barbarians in 1977.

The offloading, running angles and handling are exceptional, and speaks to a time where players were more evenly matched physically so those attributes were vital to succeed.
