  • Description

    THE BRITISH LIONS FOUGHT BACK FROM 0-8 DOWN TO DEFEAT AUSTRALIA II-8 YESTERDAY (SATURDAY) IN THE FIRST RUGBY UNION TEST MATCH, PLAYED IN SYDNEY.

    THE LIONS GOT OFF TO A SLOW START AND THE FIRST HALF OF THE GAME WAS COMPLETELY DOMINATED BY AUSTRALIA. TONY MILLER SCORED AUSTRALIA'S FIRST TRY, WHICH WAS CONVERTED SUCCESSFULLY BY GEORGE RUEBNER. SO AT HALF-TIME AUSTRALIA LED 0-5.

    AFTER THE INTERVAL AUSTRALIA WENT FURTHER AHEAD WHEN RUEBNER KICKED A PENALTY, BUT IT WAS THE LAST OF THE AUSTRALIAN SCORING. THE LIONS NOW BROKE THROUGH. AFTER 52 MINUTES OF PLAY DON RUTHERFORD KICKED A PENALTY AND SIX MINUTES LATER RAY MCLOUGHLIN CRASHED OVER FOR A TRY WHICH WAS CONVERTED BY RUTHERFORD.

    THIS LEVELLED THE SCORE 8-8 AND THEN EIGHT MINUTES FROM THE END KEN KENNEDY WENT OVER THE LINE FOR A MOST MAGNIFICENT TRY. IT WAS TO SETTLE THE MATCH.
