Warren Gatland says the British and Irish Lions will treat next weekend’s crucial Third Test against South Africa as a “cup final”. Saturday’s (August 7) final match in Cape Town will be a winner-takes-all series decider after the tourists were defeated 27-9 in the Second Test thanks to a dominant second-half display from the Springboks, who scored tries through Makazole Mapimpi and Lukhanyo Am and got 17 points in total from the boot of fly-half Handre Pollard. The Springboks executed a familiar gameplan to perfection after the interval to avoid the ignominy of losing a Lions series for the first time since 1997 with one match to spare following a second-half fightback from their opponents last weekend that saw them clinch the First Test 22-17.

The 18-year-old Giddey was introduced Saturday along with Oklahoma City’s three other draftees — fellow first-rounder Tre Mann of Florida and second-rounders Jeremiah Robinson-Earl of Villanova and Aaron Wiggins of Maryland — in the lobby of the newly renamed Paycom Arena.
