Highlights from All Blacks vs British and Irish Lions Third Test

Kieran Read left with mixed feelings after 100th test Highlights from All Blacks vs British and Irish Lions Third Test

"So this time they used the video and then had a pow-wow, and what would have been good is just play on and we would have scored under the posts; that would have been okay".

Yet unlike that legendary side, the draw wasn't enough to secure a series victory after the All Blacks won the first Test and the Lions the second.

Gatland described Warburton's questioning of Poite as "smart and astute", while the skipper said his chances of getting the referee's agreement was helped by not having questioned many earlier rulings.

"We didn't get tunnel-vision", Beauden Barrett said. I thought he'd hit the player in the air. "We don't turn up on a Saturday and want to draw or want to lose so it feels a little bit that way".

Hansen said the incident, and two other important decisions that had gone against this side in the series, showed the game's laws were far too complicated.

"It was a shot to nothing, they'd awarded the penalty".

"For a bloke to play 100 test matches for any country is fantastic and we haven't had too many do it in New Zealand", he said.

"It's not a penalty offence in my opinion".

We all remember the main highlights - the Romain Poite controversy, Elliot Daly's huge penalty, Jordie Barrett's try - but how well do you remember the finer details of the Eden Park Test?

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.

All Blacks head coach Steve Hansen suggested Owens should have been penalised but refrained from venting any fury in public. "If you look at Romain's instincts, it was a penalty - and straight away, you see (Owens), he knew", Hansen said.

"It's a tough game to ref". We all know what happened, we all know probably what should have happened.

'We're accepting of whatever decisions are made; Whether we agree with them or not is something we'll talk to the referees about.

"Going back to the World Cup, the same thing happened and Scotland missed out because they didn't use the video".

"His initial instincts were that it was a penalty, but then he spoke to his team of three and one of them said it was accidental".
