New Zealander Jordi Barrett scores an attempt in the test match against Fiji in Dunedin on July 10, 2021 Andrew Cornaga
New Zealand continued against Fiji, the British and Irish Lions, against the South African Sharks franchise, on Saturday, while Wales and Argentina tied in Cardiff.
A week after humiliating Tonga (102-0), Dunedin’s All Blacks signed a new offensive fest against their Fijian neighbors (57-23), with nine attempts scored, including four from prostitute Dane Coles, but off the bench in Starting.
La Rochelle’s three-quarters teammates Livani Boutia, who came back from suspension after a red card in the European Cup final, fought back well before collapsing in the final quarter of the match, only the second since the 2019 World Cup.
Disrupted by Covid-19, the British and Irish Lions’ tour of South Africa continues despite everything, with a second showdown in three days against the local franchise of sharks, rather than bulls, affected by several contaminations.
Already won on Wednesday (54-7), the selection repeated every four years the best English, Welsh, Scottish and Irish players on Saturday (71-31) despite some defensive errors in the first half.
Deprived of injury from second rower Maru Etoge and opener Finn Russell – temporarily replaced in the squad by England teenager Marcus Smith – the Lions made the difference after disqualifying the Sharks half-Jaden Hendriksi from the 45th minute.

Their prestigious tour is set to culminate with three shocks – July 24, July 31 and August 7 – against world champion Springboks, whose scheduled test against Georgia on Friday was canceled due to Covid-19 cases in both camps.
Retreated due to the absence of most of the executives, retained with the lions, Wales snatched a home draw against Argentina (20-20), who outnumbered the 29th minute after Toulouse full-back Juan Cruz Malia was ruled out for a strong intervention.
Thanks to two attempts by players playing in France, Pablo Matera (Stadium de France) and Jeronimo de la Fuente (Perpignan), Pumas held the lead for a long time, but several failures against the poles left the Welshman in the race.
They were also deprived of their best elements, and England and Ireland still crushed their opponents by scoring ten attempts each. The English beat Canada (70-14) with triplets from young winger Adam Radwan, in his first selection, and the bitch Jimmy Blameer, and Ireland overcame the United States (71-10) with four attempts from the bitch Ronan Kelleher.
