The Roar has the wonderful news that the ACT Brumbies have become the first Australian provincial side since Queensland in 1971 to beat the British and Irish Lions.
While the understrength Brumbies could only sub on ever greener players as the game went on the Lions brought more and more first choice players onto the pitch to no avail in the final result.
No provincial side, kiwi, saffer, or australian, has beaten the tourists in 16 years.
I also heard these Brumbies have become only the sixth Australian side since the late 1800s to hold a Lions team tryless.
A great achievement for the side and some great experience for their finals tilt.
