Southampton and London Lions compete in unique skills test

British Basketball League side London Lions and Premiership side Southampton joined forces for a special challenge presented by online bookmaker, Betfair.

Defenders Cuco Martina and Ryan Bertrand, alongside midfielder Dušan Tadić stepped up to the challenge to represent Southampton while the London Lions were represented by Joe Ikhinmwin (paired with Bertrand), Nick Lewis (paired with Martina) and Demond Watt (paired with Tadić).

The rules were simple:

–      All tricks must have 3 clear phases

–      They must end with the ball in either the hoop or a small sided goal

–      For each trick completed the pair received a word (TAP, TAP & BOOM) and the first pair to receive all three words – TAP.TAP.BOOM – are the winners.

–      In the event of a tie, the team who demonstrated the most flair will win.

Here’s how they got on..
