Waratahs captain Dave Dennis was full of pride for his players after their battling defeat by the The British and Irish Lions.

The hosts were far from outclassed as Leigh Halfpenny racked up 30 points to help the Lions ease home 47-17 in their penultimate match before next weekend's opening Test against the Wallabies.

Two scores from centre Tom Carter ensured the tourists were pushed all the way and Dennis said: "We hung in there and I thought we played some good rugby.

"They're a quality team and we knew what we needed to do to go to that next level as a squad. It was a great experience for a young team. You get one chance to play in that game in your career so they didn't leave much out there.

"It was very good but we just need to tighten up a few areas. But I hope our fans are proud of the performance. It's going to be a tough first Test and they're doing quite well so it's going to be physical and a tough Test.

"It was a special experience for me and for all of the boys to run out here in front of the fans and we're really trying to move forward as a club so the support means a lot to us."
