Paul O'Connell will emphasise a need to do "the simple things well" when he leads the British and Irish Lions into battle tomorrow.
The Lions are expected to secure a third successive South Africa tour triumph by beating Super 14 strugglers the Cheetahs at Vodacom Park.
A 74-10 victory over the Golden Lions two days ago served notice of what O’Connell and company could achieve during the next month, culminating in a three-Test series against world champions South Africa.
That 10-try triumph has cranked the tour up a notch, but captain O’Connell is determined to keep a sense of perspective.
“What happened on Wednesday night will be great for the tour,” he said.
“We did the simple things very well, and the off-loads came because of that. It gives the tour a bit of momentum and maybe makes people sit up and take notice.
“One of the first things (assistant coach) Shaun Edwards said on Thursday morning was that we don’t go out and try to play razzle-dazzle rugby or anything like that.
“A lot of what happened on Wednesday was from doing the simple things well. The off-loads came from quick ball, and that is what we have got to do on Saturday, first and foremost.
“It is about keeping our composure and making sure we play to win first. Whatever happens after that, happens.”
