Lions claim Four Nations crown
IRISH WOLFHOUNDS 0 v 38 ENGLISH LIONS
The English Lions sealed the Community Game Four Nations title with a 38-0 win over the Irish Wolfhounds in Limerick.
Previous wins over Wales (56-8) and Scotland (48-14) had put the Lions in the driving seat to claim the title and a convincing display in mid-west Ireland underlined their dominance in the competition.
Full-back Jordan Precious led the way with a try and five goals, whilst the Lions other six tries came from a brace to centre Steve King and further efforts to Tony Baker, Nathan Kitson, Caldon Bravo and Matthew Meaden.
“The whole squad has worked really hard over the last few months and this is a fitting end to a great campaign,” said a delighted Lions head coach Jimmy Taylor.
“The commitment shown by the players and staff has been tremendous and this was another great display.
“Just like the previous wins it was a real team effort with our defence and discipline the key.
“We can take some real encouragement from the Four Nations campaign as we looked forward to our next test which will be a trip to Canada in October for a two-game tour.
