Every tour should have an awards ceremony to celebrate the highs and lows. These are the awards I would give:
Player of the tour: Leigh Halfpenny
A point kicking machine and safe pair of hands at the back of the field. No player came close to him.
The difference maker: Will Genia
When he played well, Australia played well. When he was quiet, so were his team.
The unstoppable force: George North
A beast of a man who threw himself about, often with his opposite number on his shoulders.
The immovable object: Adam Jones
Locked in the Lions scrum in the third test and still one of the best tight heads in the game.
Best sidestep: James Horwill
Beautifully sidestepped not one judicial panel but two. A memorable feat. Unlikely to be matched any time soon.
Biggest hit: Warren Gatland
Smashed O’Driscoll out of the final test ruthlessly. Vindicated by the result, but the thump still echoes around the rugby world.
