Highlights from All Blacks vs British and Irish Lions Third Test

Highlights from All Blacks vs British and Irish Lions Third Test”

A freakish late-match decision to hand the Lions an attacking scrum instead of penalty for a Ken Owens offside, however, will undoubtedly hog the headlines, with skipper Kieran Read clearly perplexed by referee Romain Poite's call.

They nearly got off the hook for that profligacy, going ahead 15-12 in the 68th minute through the boot of Beauden Barrett, until Lions playmaker Owen Farrell knocked over his fifth three-pointer with two minutes left.

"It's a tough game to ref".

"I think we'll look back on the series and a draw is better than a loss".

"But as little kids you are told to take the good with the bad".

"Its a odd feeling at the moment but I think as the night goes on and we take our holidays and we get to look back on it, we'll be proud of this".

Although he said he wouldn't expand on his initial thoughts, the World Cup-winning coach was persuaded to return to the issue.

"Going back to the World Cup, the same thing happened and Scotland missed out because they didn't use the video". To come to somewhere like New Zealand, the home of the double world champions, after such a short time together and to run them as close as we did is a huge achievement. 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.

"It doesn't matter about the result when you start talking about his 100 games".

"One thing we've spoken about is we would love to go up in sevens this week".

"There's too many avenues that you can go down, but that's not the ref's fault, that's the rulebook".

Woodward also praises Lions head coach Warren Gatland - the "Sun on Sunday" couldn't resist the headline "Clown but not Out" referring to the Kiwi attending the post match press conference adorned with a clown's red nose in riposte to a New Zealand newspaper who caricatured him as one. People that are running the game need to ask themselves do we need to make it simpler.

"It's pretty disrespectful to think just because we've drawn a series we've gone backwards". "I thought Kieran Read".

"I can understand that he is saying he's competing for that, and the ball has come [down] and landed in Ken Owens's arms".

"And in fairness to the man next to me [Warburton], he's been quite smart and astute he's been able to talk the referee from a penalty into an accidental offside".

The drawn series has come at a cost, particularly to Leinster who will be fretting over Sean O'Brien's shoulder injury.

"We'll just see how he turns up tomorrow". We all know what happened, we all know probably what should have happened. "He's got a piece of his hip in there, replaced some bone in the past".
