All Blacks team to play British & Irish Lions”

Jones was at the heart of an impressive display by the Lions pack at Westpac Stadium, more than justifying his selection after a lacklustre performance in the opening Test had critics calling for his head.

The younger Barrett brother only made his Test debut for the All Blacks in the thrashing of Samoa last month but didn't get an opportunity to feature in the first two Test matches against the Lions in Auckland and Wellington.

Sean Fitzpatrick revealed scuffles have broken out at All Blacks training because tension is so high ahead of the series decider against the Lions at Eden Park on Saturday.

Join us live from Sky Studios to find out who is in the matchday squad and also live from Auckland as Gail Davis is joined by Will Greenwood, Scott Quinnell and Stuart Barnes for reaction to that squad and analysis into how the match may unfold. He believes that the Lions can win the series if, "they get everything right again and the All Blacks are off-colour".

Returning to the side on the wing is try-scoring sensation Julian Savea, who was controversially left out of the matchday squads for the first two Tests but is now afforded the chance to add to his haul of 46 worldwide tries.

The All Blacks have been scrambling to shore up their backline since the first Test which they managed to win 30-15 despite injuries removing seasoned fullback Ben Smith and centre Ryan Crotty in the first half.

British and Irish Lions coach Warren Gatland has rewarded his victorious Test players by naming an unchanged team for their tour-ending showdown against the All Blacks.

"It's a special achievement to play just one test, so to play 100 is a remarkable effort", All Blacks coach Steve Hansen said. It now comes down to this Saturday - the victor takes all - and that'll create its own unique pressures and it's going to be interesting to see how both sides cope with it.

Savea, who has scored 46 tries in 53 tests, lost his place to the 20-year-old Reiko Ioane who scored two tries in the first test but was found out by the Lions' kicking game in the second.

Anthony Watson 13. Jonathan Davies 12.

Replacements: N Harris, W Crockett, C Faumuina, S Barrett, A Savea, TJ Perenara, A Cruden, M Fekitoa.
