The British and Irish Lions' tour of New Zealand may be over following their series draw but the players are still out there celebrating.

What A Series!!
Full Time - All Blacks 15 - 15 Lions

It's all over at Eden Park!!

The series is tied at 1-1.

One of the greatest matches in recent history ends all-square, and while it may have not been a match awash with quality, the entertainment was off the scale.

A strange atmosphere in the stadium, with neither sides' fans celebrating the result.

Can we please have a fourth test?


Despair for the Lions as they are offside at the restart.

With an All Blacks penalty looking likely, it's somehow decided that it was accidental, and it's a scrum to the All Blacks.


One minute to go.

All Blacks 15 - 15 Lions

It's All-Square!!!

Owen Farrell has produced one of the finest kicks off his life to make it 15-15.

Yes, it may have been in front of the posts, but it was 45m out and Farrell slots it like a superstar.

All Blacks In Charge

Liam Williams fails to keep hold of a grubber kick, and hands the initiative to the All Blacks, who are holding on to their lead with aplomb here.

Stuck in their own half, the Lions will need to produce something special here.

15-12 All Blacks.

Six minutes to go.

All Blacks 15 - 12 Lions

Kyle Sinckler is at fault for the penalty, as he collapses the scrum.

Beauden Barrett with a simple penalty in front of the posts makes no mistake and puts the All Blacks back in front.

Just over ten minutes to go.


Mistakes might be frequent at Eden Park, with both side producing countless handling errors, but my word this is a stunning test match.

One bit of brilliance could win this.

15 to go.
