The match is in Auckland and the All Blacks have not lost there since 1994. However, Steve Hansen's side are missing a few experienced players in the backline and the Lions have become a stronger unit over the last two weeks. The B&I Lions will win this one by seven points or less and win the series 2-1.
  • -10
Players to watch: For New Zealand: Julian “The Bus” Savea is back in his beloved 11 jersey and have a point to prove to his coaches and the public, and one can expect him to give a big performance today being a threat with ball in hand, the Lions will have to deny him any space to work with as he can break open defences with his raw strength and pace. For the Lions: Last week somewhat bitterly one could say the New Zealand herald gave Maro Itoje a 4/10 rating, which raised quite a few eyebrows as he was one of their standout performers and there is no doubt the English youngster will back that performance up with another huge effort today
  • -15
Rookie Rieko Ioane have been dropped after an average performance last week where the pressure could have been too much playing with only 14 men for the majority of the game, however All Blacks head coach Steve Hansen backed 2 more rookies in Jordie Barrett and Ngani Laumape in this crucial decider and time will tell if these 2 talented player’s inexperience will count against them as one expect that the Lions will put pressure on these guys.
  • -20
All Black flanker Jerome Kaino said this week that this decider is as big as a world cup final, and the All blacks are known for bouncing back in a huge fashion after taking a loss and today will be no exception for the men in black
  • -25
Last week we saw something that did not happen in 50 years when Sonny Bill Williams was red carded for a shoulder charge to the face on Anthony Watson and became the first All Black to be sent off in a test in 50 years, ultimately it had an effect on the result as the Lions clinched a dramatic 21-24 win over the World Champions.

Good day and welcome to the 3rd and deciding test between New Zealand and the British & Irish Lions from a cold and wet Eden Park in Auckland, New Zealand!!

PREVIEW: New Zealand v B&I Lions

Fri, 07 Jul 2017 07:03

THE THIRD TEST: The British and Irish Lions are hoping a beer and bungee jumping jolly will give them an advantage as they face an edgy All Blacks side in a Test match of historic proportions on Saturday.

So much is at stake for both sides, after the Lions' victory last week put them in a position to clinch only their second series win over New Zealand in 129 years of touring.

With one victory apiece, the All Blacks ramped up training this week to avoid joining the 1971 New Zealand team in losing a series to the Lions.

Reports of scuffles among players during intense training sessions were denied, but flank Jerome Kaino spoke of a "definite edge" in the camp. 

The Lions, by contrast, took time out at the resort town of Queenstown, where they swapped training for a relaxed few days of beers and bungee jumping.

Even when they arrived in Auckland they downplayed their excitement about "the biggest game" of their careers, with captain Sam Warburton saying he was "feeling pretty chilled out".

"It was good to have that break in Queenstown... Right now I won't get too excited until match day. You don't want to waste too much emotional energy over such a big game," Warburton said.

Despite the tourists' laid-back approach, Lions assistant coach Neil Jenkins said they knew the magnitude of the task ahead against a wounded All Blacks side.

"It's a series decider, a World Cup Final, whatever you want to label it as. It's a humongous game. We know how hard it's going to be," Jenkins said.

None of the Lions have played in a World Cup final, while the All Blacks retain six of the starting forwards from their World Cup victory in 2015 - but only two backs, Julian Savea and Aaron Smith.
It is the new-look backline that the Lions will be keen to target, with inside centre Ngani Laumape and 20-year-old fullback Jordie Barrett getting their first starts, in only their second Tests.

It is a bold move by coach Steve Hansen, who seems intent on re-igniting the All Blacks' spark and has turned to the Hurricanes, who lead the Super Rugby competition for tries and line breaks.

With Barrett, his flyhalf brother Beauden, Laumape and Savea there will be four Hurricanes in the All Blacks backs.

The forward pack remains unchanged, and that is where the platform will be laid for the outcome of the Test. 

"It's to be a physical Test, it has to be," Hansen said. 

"Every Test match is won up front. We won the first one up front, they won the second one up front, so whoever wins that battle on the weekend will probably have a smile on their face."

History is not in the Lions' favour. 

In 11 previous series, they have only once won the last Test and that was in 1959. The All Blacks have not lost at Eden Park for 23 years, a run of 38 games.

And having won the last two World Cups, including holding on for an 8-7 win in the titanic 2011 final against France, the All Blacks seem to have shrugged off their former reputation as chokers. 

The Lions did, however, take a lot of confidence from the clinical way they came from behind to win the second Test, when their attacking game delivered the only two tries in the match.

Warren Gatland has named an unchanged line-up for the decider, which gives them the ability to mix the astute kick-chase game of Conor Murray with the skills of Owen Farrell should they wish to go wide. 

"We know we've stressed the All Blacks at times and we've scored some great tries," Gatland said. 

"You always want to be regarded as a winner and for us, the focus is on winning on Saturday and winning the series."

Players to watch:

For New Zealand: Fullback Jordie Barrett is one of the exciting new talents at senior level at the moment and his vision on attack and accurate kicking game could give the All Blacks an extra edge out wide. In the midfield, Ngani Laumape has been in fine form for the Hurricanes and his strength with ball in hand will get the All Blacks over the advantage line. In the back row, Sam Cane will have an important job to do at the breakdowns against some aggressive British and Irish Lions players.

For British and Irish Lions: Lock Maro Itoje has been the talk of the town in the last few weeks. The youngster likes to get under his opponents' skin and he is a smart player in the line-outs as well. Loose forward Sean O'Brien is a mongrel in the physical exchanges and his power can disrupt the All Blacks' rhythm. In the backline, centres Jonathan Davies and Owen Farrell will look to expose the inexperience in the All Blacks' backline.

Head to head: Ngani Laumape should keep Owen Farrell and Jonathan Davies busy in the midfield, while flyhalf Beauden Barrett will look to be much more dominant against Jonathan Sexton at Eden Park. The battle between the two second rows at line-out time will also be a keen one to watch.

Recent results: 
2017: B&I Lions won 24-21, Wellington
2017: New Zealand won 30-15, Auckland
2005: New Zealand won 38-19, Auckland
2005: New Zealand won 48-18, Wellington

1983: New Zealand won 15-8, Dunedin
1983: New Zealand won 9-0, Wellington
1983: New Zealand won 16-12, Christchurch

Prediction: The match is in Auckland and the All Blacks have not lost there since 1994. However, Steve Hansen's side are missing a few experienced players in the backline and the Lions have become a stronger unit over the last two weeks. The B&I Lions will win this one by seven points or less and win the series 2-1.

All Blacks share Lions Series spoils

Sat, 08 Jul 2017 07:05

REPORT: New Zealand and the British and Irish Lions had to settle for a share of the spoils after the final Test ended in a controversial 15-15 draw at Eden Park

The All Blacks scored two tries in the first half and in the dying seconds, they were awarded a penalty well within kicking range only for the decision to be overruled after a video review.

It left the series tied at one win each and a draw, the first such result in the Lions' 129-year history and only the second time in 12 visits that they have not lost a series to New Zealand.

But neither side appeared satisfied by the result. For the All Blacks, it was the first time in 39 games they have failed to win at Eden Park.

Fullback Jordie Barrett, in his first Test start, set up Ngani Laumape for a try and then scored another, with his brother Beauden Barrett kicking a conversion and one penalty. The Lions' points all came from penalties, with four by Owen Farrell and one giant effort by Elliot Daly just after half-time.

The All Blacks' gamble in starting rookies Jordie Barrett and Laumape paid off in the first half, with both scoring tries when the hosts were dominant.

By half-time the All Blacks were up 12-6, but the Lions struck back with two second-half penalties to level the scores at 12-12.

In a frantic final 20 minutes, the All Blacks regained the lead after Wyatt Crockett forced a Lions scrum collapse, allowing Beauden Barrett to put them ahead 15-12 with the penalty.

But their slim lead evaporated on 77 minutes when Farrell - also the Lions' hero in last week's 24-21 victory when he kicked the winning points - landed a penalty from 48 metres.

The All Blacks were clearly stung by losing the second Test last week in Wellington and they hit back with a vengeance in the first half. The Lions were considered underdogs and the tour's schedule was labelled "suicidal" before it began, but in the end they proved their critics wrong.

After a helter-skelter opening 10 minutes, Daly beat Israel Dagg in the air to take the Lions up to the New Zealand line, only for the two rookie All Blacks to turn defence into points. An intercept by Jordie Barrett set Laumape racing 80 metres where he was cut down from behind by Jonathan Davies. 

From a resulting scrum, Beauden Barrett kicked across field for Jordie Barrett to leap high and instinctively palm the ball back to Laumape for the opening try.

The Lions replied with a penalty to Owen Farrell, but their time in All Blacks territory was limited and it was only poor handling by the New Zealanders that eased the pressure on the tourists.

When the Lions got within striking range, they made it count. With Farrell adding a second penalty to close within one point before Jordie Barrett was back in the action with the All Blacks' second try. 

In the countdown to half-time, Brodie Retallick won an untidy line-out and the All Blacks went wide for Barrett to score in space on the right. 

A third penalty to the Lions, this time a 52-metre shot from Daly, lifted the Lions at the start of the second half and Farrell's third successful kick, also from distance, drew the Lions level with 20 minutes remaining.

Barrett stroked the All Blacks back in front 15-12 with 13 minutes left, before Farrell levelled the scores for the final time on 77 minutes.

In the final minute, the All Blacks won a penalty within range for a Ken Owens offside, only for referee Romain Poite to rule the offence accidental and reduce the punishment to a scrum.

Man of the match: Maro Itoje proved the quality he possesses while Anthony Watson showed how much of an attacking threat he can be - especially under the high ball. Conor Murray backed up his performance with another solid performance. Jordie Barrett's awareness and the manner in which he read the game bodes well for his international future. Julian Savea looked for work and remained a threat when he had the ball while Beauden Barrett ran hard lines to compliment his well-executed tactical kicking. Our award though goes to a player who had his hand in both his side's tries - another player to keep an eye on for the future - Ngani Laumape.

Moment of the match: While either of the All Blacks' tries, as well as Jerome Kaino's yellow card, was in contention, a lot rode on Romain Poite's decision to change a last-minute call from offside to accidental offside against Ken Owens. His initial decision awarded the All Blacks a kickable penalty but after consulting TMO George Ayoub, Poite changed his initial call to award the All Blacks an attacking scrum.

Villain of the match: With so much on the line, the players kept their emotions in check, however, there were a few calls by referee Romain Poite that left the players bemused.
