Ronan O'Gara feels that the British and Irish Lions need more time to gel together and that the only decent performance we have seen on the tour so far was against the Crusaders.
"You can see the difficulties they have in terms of combinations, getting used to playing with each other. A lot of them are really good players but as you know, rugby is a team sport, the ultimate sport so you need time to build up trust and gel together."
The former Ireland and Munster out-half believes that Warren Gatland has a group of players that are capable of beating the All Blacks, but those playing in the midweek matches wouldn't be next or near able to compete with the three time world cup winners.
"Some of the midweek players aren't capable of beating the All Blacks and as we've seen with some of the Super 15 teams, they're strong, but it was a bad game to lose to the Highlanders."
The Lions have had a turbulent tour of New Zealand so far. The tourists have beaten the Barbarians and the Crusaders but fell short against the Blues and Highlanders.
Next up is the Maori All Blacks and the Chiefs before the first of three tests against the All Blacks on Saturday the 24th of June.
