The weekend’s action saw Conor Murray join a very select club after Saturday’s victory for the Lions over South Africa. Murray is one of only 10 players to have won a Lions Test match against all three of Australia, New Zealand and the Springboks.

Murray’s Munster team-mate Tadhg Beirne also featured off the bench to close out the 22-17 win, making his Lions Test debut.
