Twitter Reaction

Wonderful tries, hard tackling and a last-gasp slip up by Kurtley Beale saw the Lions run out  23-21 winners in the first Test in Brisbane earlier today.

The visitors are now in the driving seat to record their first series win since 1997 ahead of next Saturday’s second test to come in Melbourne.

While there were four great tries – including this one from George North – the match swung on the success rate of the kickers.

Leigh Halfpenny’s penalty put the visitors 20-12 ahead (take a bow Andy McGeady) with 15 minutes left before Beale responded with two penalties – before his last kick-of-the-game howler.

Here’s how the Twitter machine read it.

Stephen Fry keeps it simple :

Former England captain Will Carling calls it about right:

Dai Lama’s got his own agenda

Paddy Power columnist Gareth Thomas rowed in with a 20/1 winning tip.

And never one to miss kicking a man when he’s down – Piers Morgan will be as popular Down Under as he is everywhere else.
