Lions will be happier with that result than the All Blacks. Lions rugby alive and well.

Felt Poite bottled it in the final 5 minutes though.

Credit to both sides on a tough series.

With the backline we put out tonight, I'm calling it a moral victory to the ABs. :D

It was a poor Lions side. Could have gone either way.

He jumped into the man, made no contact with the ball. Williams milked it but it should have been Lions ball.

11.6 ACCIDENTAL OFFSIDE
(a) When an offside player cannot avoid being touched by the ball or by a team-mate carrying
it, the player is accidentally offside. If the player’s team gains no advantage from this, play
continues. If the player’s team gains an advantage, a scrum is formed with the opposing
team throwing in the ball.

11.7 OFFSIDE AFTER A KNOCK-ON
When a player knocks-on and an offside team-mate next plays the ball, the offside player is
liable to sanction if playing the ball prevented an opponent from gaining an advantage.
Sanction: Penalty kick

What I truly want to know is if it was only a knock on Black had regained the loose ball and was on his way to the try line....can a Lions fan explain that shocking call to a neutral like myself.

The fair result. NZ will be gutted. Absolutely brilliant test match, one of the all time great games. Lions have far far exceeded expectations. :thumbup:

Jordie Barrett is just incredible. His first start ffs.

Good series on everyone's part. Might be disappointing but I think the drawn series is a) about right and b) a decent achievement for a Lions side nobody was expecting to make a serious go by the end

ABs simply not good enough in the end. They had the opportunities all series and especially tonight but just blew it. Didn't have composure in the big moments. They became very, very narrow as the game developed and pressure told on their confidence to use width.

The ABs cannot go into big games like this without a big game place kicker and Barrett's place kicking is just too shit.

Outstanding from Warburton and Itoje from Lions in a mainly rearguard action. Davies also very effective.

Gatland should've looked happier, Lions were on the verge of coughing up the series. I realise he wanted to win, but it's difficult from that point on the pitch. I'm guessing he'll cheer up when he reflects.
