Lions salvage draw against All Blacks in gripping Eden Park decider

The All Blacks have now gone 40 matches without losing at Eden Park after denying the Lions a long-awaited series win in New Zealand.

Owen Farrell held his nerve to salvage a 15-15 draw for the British and Irish Lions against New Zealand in a dramatic end to the series at fortress Eden Park, which saw the hosts controversially denied a late chance to snatch victory.

Ngani Laumape and Jordie Barrett marked their maiden New Zealand starts with first-half tries, but the Lions refused to be beaten and Farrell's fourth penalty two minutes from time ultimately thwarted the world champions.



New Zealand were awarded a penalty from the restart, but referee Romain Poite changed his mind following a TMO review - instead deeming Ken Owens to be accidentally offside. That meant the All Blacks were awarded a scrum rather than a chance to kick at goal and a gripping series ended 1-1.
