Great Britain have improved while on Lions tour, says James Graham

Great Britain skipper James Graham believes his side have become better while on tour Down Under. 

The Lions have lost three games out of three on their tour of the southern hemisphere so far – two defeats against New Zealand and a loss to Tonga.

Great Britain finish their tour with a trip to Papua New Guinea next week and despite not having won a game, Graham believes the team are on the up.

When asked if they had improved from the start of the tour, Graham replied: “Yeah, absolutely.

“It has been a big test this week, we’ve had a number of injuries and we’ve had a number of players playing out of position but we have just got on with it and we were confident in the lads coming in.

“We’ve had a lot of debutants throughout the series and a lot of the lads can be proud of the way they have come in to the group.

“We made a few errors early doors and the Kiwis completed well. They had a lot of possession and it was backs against the wall for us in the first half.”
