TBT: The Lions trounce South Africa (2009)

Dave Gantly remembers the Third Test in 2009, when the Lions trounced South Africa.
In 2009, the Lions went in to the third test 2 -down. All that was left to play for was pride. Before kickoff, an emotional Sir Ian Mc Geechan addressed his players reminding them of their roles as Lions; what it meant to wear the red jersey. What followed was a fine performance by the Lions, beating South Africa 28 – 9 to finish the tour. Can the 2013 tourists do the same this week and prove the doubters wrong?
Sydney awaits.
Sport Is Everything. Dave Gantly.
