Gerald Davies swoops in for his try with Combined's John Allan arriving too late


Combined and Maori All Black winger Terry Mitchell sees the wide open spaces ahead but that grasping Lion's hand won't let him get there


Richard May just manages to get his pass away as his opposing halfback "Chico" Hopkins pounces on him


The Lions on attack! John Spencer has the ball in hand and appears to have the cover defence fully stretched. Coming across are Alan Sutherland, Richard May and Mr Fenton (referee). Running nearer Spencer are Terry Mitchell and Chris Rea and reaching out a futile arm is Combined first five-eighth, Tony Goddard. Nearest camera is Rod Bowater
