British&Irish Lions rip through the Barbarians in one sided affair

Onslaught sees a 21-0 win for British&Irish Lions over Barbarians in Rugby Challenge 2: The Lions Tour Edition

London, United Kingdom– May 31, 2013: Home Entertainment Suppliers Pty Ltd (HES) and Alternative Software pitted foe against foe a day early to predict the outcome of the first match in the upcoming Lions Tour, with Rugby Challenge 2: The Lions Tour Edition.

The British&Irish Lions didn’t just take on the Barbarians; they ripped them a new one with a 21-0 whitewash.

Rugby Challenge 2: The Lions Tour Edition features the official licensed British and Irish Lions 2013 Tour of Australia campaign and the first match, British&Irish Lions vs. Barbarians took place to simulate the result of tomorrow’s real life match in action.

Tommy Rowe (Ulster and Ireland) was the star of the match with quick wing play to score two tries while Leigh Halfpenny (Cardiff Blues and Wales) topped those tries with three successful conversions. The Barbarians’ misery was compounded by a missed kick for goal.

Tomorrow’s match may prove an altogether different encounter, but consumers won’t have to wait too long to try and win the match for themselves, with the release of Rugby Challenge 2: The Lions Tour Edition only weeks away.
