British and Irish Lions draw epic conclusion in New Zealand tour

JohnnyJohnny

Chaos would return as the clock ticked red, with Poite awarding New Zealand a penalty to win the game, only to review the decision with the TMO and decide the infringement, which saw Ken Owens accidentally offside, merited a scrum, not a lineout. Yeah, we played well enough to win.

Hansen said he congratulated the referee after the game. "It's good to see and they'll take a lot of confidence from that". We're accepting of whatever decisions are made.

As the dust settles on a remarkable Test game of rugby union between the All Blacks and the British and Irish Lions, we can safely say that today was a game for the ages.

In an apparent reference to New Zealand spurning several excellent opportunities to add to Ngani Laumape and Jordie Barrett's first-half scores, Hansen said: "If we had scored another try ourselves it wouldn't have been such a problem". The ref's initial instincts were that it was a penalty, then he spoke to his team of three and one suggested it was accidental. "We all know what should have happened but, at the end of the day, it's a game". Going back to the World Cup the same thing happened and Scotland missed out because they didn't use the video.

We keep getting told that the All Blacks have a "no dickheads" rule, where senior players are expected to sweep the changing rooms to keep all their players grounded. It has been a good series for us, it has put us under a bit of pressure and we have to deal with that mentally.

All Blacks coach Steve Hansen described the drawn series against the Lions as "a bit like kissing your sister". So something for us to look back on.

1000 cinemas shut down in Tamil Nadu in protest against GST
Ramanathan Said "If we screen movies, we have to pay local body taxes immediately as it came into force from yesterday". Tamil Nadu is the only state to have imposed an additional 30% entertainment tax over and above the GST for film trade.

Perhaps it was a fair result, but both teams will have regrets.

There was an uncomfortable silence at full-time at Eden Park after the historic series ended one match apiece, with All Blacks captain Kieran Read and Lions counterpart Sam Warburton hoisting the trophy together at the presentation.

"It was probably the first time in a while I've been that nervous for a game".

Is it just me or have All Blacks supporters overtaken their Manchester United counterparts as the most obnoxious fans roaming the earth?
