Warburton blames Lions discipline

first_imgThe Lions conceded 12 penalties in Dunedin – five more than the home side – and were beaten by Marty Banks’ decisive kick six minutes from time.The result represents the tourists’ second defeat of the tour to New Zealand after they were beaten by the Blues last Wednesday, and Warburton knows things must improve.”We gave away too much possession at the breakdown, we turned over a bit too much ball,” Warburton told Sky Sports. “I thought when we were direct, we looked good.”These experiences now, we’ll review the game in detail and there are things we’ll look back on.”I think there was a string of four penalties in a row in the second half where we were in decent territory. We gave them way too much territory and momentum.”The discipline on Saturday we kept the penalties to single figures, I’m not sure if we did today.”Respect between the two teams after a fantastic contest in Dunedin #AllForOne #LionsNZ2017 #HIGvBIL reactionhttps://t.co/wzvECE22SV pic.twitter.com/ruUINOkcTP— British&Irish Lions (@lionsofficial) 13 June 2017Waisake Naholo crossed early for the Highlanders before tries from Jonathan Joseph, Tommy Seymour and Warburton himself saw the Lions pull clear.However, Liam Coltman touched down on the hour mark as the Highlanders reduced the deficit to two, with Banks knocking over the decisive penalty after Owen Farrell was wayward with his first attempt having replaced Dan Biggar.A mammoth Elliot Daly penalty attempt late on fell just short, before Joseph spilled forward to end a desperate last attack from the Lions.Coach Warren Gatland commented: “We gave away a line-out for their try after having cleared our lines. We know we need to be better in those moments to make sure we don’t compound our errors.”We were inaccurate at times, they kicked the ball quite smartly to put us under pressure. The players are learning that it is about playing for 80 minutes and being in the moment.”We always said that coming to New Zealand was going to be tough against the Super Rugby sides. They are the best rugby nation in the world.”The Lions face the Maori All Blacks on Saturday as they close in on the first Test match on June 24.”The Maori is going to be the biggest challenge of this Tour [so far],” said Warburton. “They have picked a great squad, with a lot of guys with All Black experience, so we’re looking forward to that challenge.”last_img read more

Tuned Tesla Model S P100D Goes Dark

first_img14 photos Deep Blue Metallic Tesla Model 3 Gets Aftermarket ADV.1 Wheels The Dark Knight is back, this time with 21″ Strasse WheelsFor the recent few months, there’s been a steady flow in of rather interesting looking Tesla Model S aftermarket builds. This is mostly due to the vehicle’s popularity, but also, the more acceptable price point of used Model S vehicles. For this particular Model S, going dark is the theme. And we have nothing against it- whatever some may say.Take a look at more Tesla tuning projects Matte Blue Tesla Model S P90D With ADV.1 Wheels And Aftermarket Parts This particular vehicle is a Tesla Model S P100D.  Coming with a well-familiar dual-motor setup, the P100D excels in straight line performance. The vehicle uses a massive 760 horsepower and it affords the owner with the all-too-familiar tire screeching sonata at the tune of 722 lb-ft of torque. The Model S P100D will sprint from 0-70mph (0-100km/h) in just 2.68 seconds, making it one of the fastest street legal, mass-produced vehicles in the world.The Model S comes with a dual motor setup delivering 760 horsepower, while the same setup in the Volkswagen I.D R Pikes Peak delivers 670 horsepower. Torque wise, the difference is even more pronounced. The Tesla plays the all-too-familiar tire screeching sonata at the tune of 722 lb-ft of torque. On the other hand, the VW I.D R will utilize “just” 479 lb-ft of torque. However, the VW’s racer weighs a little over a metric tonne (2,204lbs) – less than half the weight of the 2,241kg (4,940lbs) Tesla P100D.For this Model S, the owner wanted to give his vehicle a more menacing look. This is done due to a completely blacked out exterior, matched with red details such as the Tesla logo in the front and in the rear. Furthermore, the most impacting part of this build are the directional Strasse Wheels. Coming in at a whopping 21×9 at the front and 21×10.5 at the rear, these wheels help fill out those huge wheel arches perfectly. Naturally, the wheels come in Gloss Black, perfectly revealing the bloodshot red brake calipers behind them.You can view the full build gallery of this Model S P100D right below.
