Everyone is crying out for one more Irish Lion to start final Test match against All Blacks

The Lions were brilliant last Saturday but there is still a lot of room for improvement.

Sean O'Brien was immense, as too was Owen Farrell but there was one player in particular that came under intense scrutiny for his performance against the All Blacks.

Mako Vunipola didn't have the best game of his life, to be frank, he played very poorly in the 24-21 win over New Zealand.

We gave him a 2/10 in our player ratings after the English international gave away four penalties and was yellow carded.

To beat the All Blacks in Auckland the Lions will have to be at their very best and line out with their strongest side and many feel that Vunipola should be replaced by Jack McGrath.

If McGrath was to be the only change it would mean that Ireland would be well accounted for with five starting players, matching both England and Wales' representation.
