Lions thump Wallabies in Sydney
It's the Lion's first series win Down Under in more than two decades.
SYDNEY - The British and Irish Lions crushed Australia 41-16 on Saturday to claim their first series win since 1997, sealing a 2-1 victory.
It is also their first series win in Australia since 1989.
The Lions were quick out of the blocks at the ANZ Stadium with prop Alex Corbisiero crossing for a second minute try and fullback Leigh Halfpenny kicking 12 points to open up a 19-3 lead after 26 minutes.
Australia fought back with James O'Connor scoring just before halftime and inside centre Christian Leali'ifano kicking the home side to within three points at 19-16 with 25 minutes remaining.
But the Lions finally found the attacking rhythm that they lacked in the second test loss and fly-half Jonny Sexton, winger George North and centre Jamie Roberts crossed for second half tries as the Lions rode out comfortable winners.
