Excellent start, but an injury in the first match too.... BBC SPORT: "Bay of Plenty 20-34 Lions - The Lions made a winning start to their tour of New Zealand by beating Bay of Plenty 34-20, but victory was tarnished by an injury to Lawrence Dallaglio. The tourists were pushed hard by the home side in Rotorua and went in level at 17-17 at half-time. But their attacking play proved decisive as they ran in six tries, with two from England wing Josh Lewsey.
Dallaglio was stretchered off after 20 minutes and is believed to have dislocated his ankle. Lions coach Sir Clive Woodward will have been pleased with his side's attacking potency after their lucky draw against Argentina two weeks ago. "
