I'm sure most of the Springboks were in a training camp last time too. Not quite so many but the main contenders.
When was the last time the Lions lost a tour game outside of New Zealand? Genuine question. Don't remember any but could have been one between the tests.
They lost a game against the Brumbies on the Aus tour.
Although in fairness, that was also the game where Gatland called up three of England's 2nd XV from the Argentina tour and chucked them in with all the players he'd decided would not be involved with the tests with zero preparation. Or, to put it another way - Billy Twelvetrees, British and Irish Lions starter.
thirty-six would have been a star in either of these last 2 matches. Only player to fail miserably was the patently unfit Mako Vunipola. He isn't going to cut it at altitude and should come home now
