FORMER Welwyn rugby player Joe Worsley helped the British and Irish Lions beat South Africa 28-9 yesterday (Saturday).
The London Wasps and England flanker came into the team at six for his Lions Test debut against the Springboks at Ellis Park, Johannesburg.
And the fearless back row put in a typically tough-tackling performance for the tourists in another ferocious battle between the two sides.
Worsley briefly left the field in the first half for a blood injury and eventually made way for replacement Tom Croft with 14 minutes left.
Lions captain Paul O'Connell praised Worsley's immense defensive efforts against the world champions afterwards.
The Lions won the match thanks to two first-half tries by mercurial Welsh winger Shane Williams and a stunning 70 metre interception effort by Harlequins wing Ugo Monye.
