Rugby Union, Moody: Lions win a must

Former England captain Lewis Moody says that the British & Irish Lions have to win their series in Australia for it to be considered a success.


The Lions are 8/11 with bet365 to win the three-match series Down Under, with Moody feeling that the pressure will be on Warren Gatland's touring party. However, Moody has also backed the Lions to win their first three-match series since a 2-1 triumph in South Africa back in 1997. Moody warned: "He (Gatland) has to win. You look back on any Lions tour that have gone in the past, what do you consider a success? We only look at the winning tours, it's as simple as that. "Are we going to win it? Yes we are. We certainly have the players to do so and I think Australia aren't the team that they used to be." The first Test takes place at the Suncorp Stadium in Brisbane on Saturday 22nd June.
