The British and Irish Lions have touched down in South Africa and got their tour off to a perfect start with a routine win over a disappointing Sigma Lions XV.

Joining Brian in studio to reflect on the opening tour win is former London Irish winger Topsy Ojo.

Josh Adams was the star of the show, the Wales winger crossed for four tries and has definitely laid down an early marker to be starting in the test series when it rolls around in three weeks time.

Finn Russell also impressed at fly half, the Scotland playmaker was full of his usual tricks but can he be trusted to start at fly half in the test series or is he best used off the bench?

Elsewhere South Africa finally returned to action for the first time since winning the World Cup in 2019. Former Springbok Thinus Delport joins the show to reflect on their win over Georgia and to talk about their latest flying winger Aphelele Fassi who was the star performer on Friday night.

Away from the Lions Tour, Marcus Smith finally made his England debut and impressed the crowd at Twickenham, Topsy was there watching and we discuss if any of the fifteen players on show put their hand up for a late Lions call up.
