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.
