O'Mahony: Lions must be more clinical


Peter O'Mahony says the British and Irish Lions must be more clinical if they are to avoid falling to a series defeat against New Zealand next weekend.

The Lions were beaten 30-15 in Auckland on Saturday - a match for which O'Mahony was captain as tour skipper Sam Warburton had to settle for a place on the bench.

Warren Gatland's side scored a try in each half, with Sean O'Brien's stunning first-half effort coming after a moment of magic from full-back Liam Williams.

However, several chances and half-chances to cause further damage came and went, and two scores from Rieko Ioane put the result beyond doubt before Rhys Webb crossed for a late consolation.

"I thought we had an excellent first half and created plenty of chances," O'Mahony told Sky Sports. "We probably missed one in the first half and here in the second.

"We are happy with the opportunities we created. Our discipline wasn't where it should be, we conceded double figures in penalties.

"We have to regroup, have a good look at that and move on now.

"We have got to be a little bit more clinical, we are making some good breaks we just have to finish them off."
