Great Britain coach Wayne Bennett admits he won’t be losing any sleep over his side’s lack of tries on their tour to New Zealand.

The Lions only scored one try in last weekend’s defeat to Tonga, while they also only managed a single four-pointer as they went down to the Kiwis on Saturday.

Britain have looked devoid of any real attacking skill in both games and they will be hoping to get oer the line a few more times in the second Test next weekend.

Bennett told the post-match press conference: “I’m not going to lose any sleep over that.

“The opposition only scored two as well. The bottom line is no one is scoring a lot of tries.

“Last week we didn’t make any opportunities to score tries, today we had opportunities to score tries so that’s the difference.

“We’re on the up, we’re not going backwards and we played a quality team out there today.”

Bennett was not too disheartened with the defeat and performance and fully believes they are not far away from putting together a perfect display.

He added: “It was a tight game, there was nothing in it all afternoon. We probably should have had two tries in the last five minutes but we didn’t get them and they managed to keep their nose in front.

“The first half was a pretty dismal game of football to be honest with you. Completions were high but there was just nothing happening out there. We sorted a few things out at half-time and we stuck to it in the second half.

“Our halves could have been on the ball a lot more in the first half than they were but they got that right in the second half.

“There was a lot more ball movement and played a lot better football to give ourselves a chance.”
