Wyn Jones of the British and Irish Lions on the offensive during Saturday’s Tour match against the Sharks at Loftus Versfeld in Pretoria, won 71-31 by the international team.

Walking out of another occasion with mixed emotions, Sharks coach Sean Everitt hopes his men will always look to replicate the intensity they showed during the first half against the British and Irish Lions at Loftus Versfeld in Pretoria on Saturday.

He also sees no real need to get stuck into his young scrumhalf Jaden Hendrikse for earning the red card that helped the tourists run away with the game in the second half to get their 71-31 win, after being held 26-26 at half-time by a gutsy Sharks showing.

Though the international team had always been expected to win the tour match before Hendrikse’s 45th-minute ejection made it easier for them to record a second huge victory over the Sharks inside four days, Everitt was pleased to see his youthful outfit put plenty of pressure on their more illustrious opponents before they were reduced to 14 men.
