This was the stage for Dan Biggar to impress, as he got his first start of the Lions tour this morning against the Blues.
The Welsh out-half was impressive throughout the first half, as the Lions got their noses in front.
Having fielded a clearance kick, the Ospreys star ran at the Super Rugby side’s defence, but offside prop Ofa Tu’ungafasi deemed that he had been brought back onside. However, his timing was poor, putting in a huge hit on Biggar, who ended up shipping a thunderous hit, forcing him ashore.
Johnny Sexton then came on, as the Irishman looks to turn around his fortunes and convince Warren Gatland that he is the right man to wear the number 10 shirt against the All Blacks.
There were well wishers on social media hoping that Biggar is not seriously injured, and many felt that the challenge warranted a yellow card.
Seriously? Dan Biggar wasn't expecting a tackle from a player who was 40 metres offside

36 – Penalty, bad tackle from an offside position has injured Dan Biggar, how a yellow card was not given is ridiculous!
