All Blacks released to play for Hurricanes vs. Lions

Super Rugby champions the Hurricanes have welcomed All Blacks squad members Julian Savea, Jordie Barrett, Vaea Fifita and Ngani Laumape back into their starting line-up, which also includes Nehe Milner-Skudder and the in-form Vince Aso. Sean O'Brien's fantastic first-half try from a team move will live long in the memory of all who saw it, and will give the tourists confidence.

Jonathan Davies insists there is belief in the British and Irish Lions camp that world champions New Zealand can be beaten and the Test series kept alive.

In the last minute of the game, Rhys Webb scored a consolation try for the Lions.

The Lions finally made an impression on the scoreboard when Owen Farrell sent over his first penalty attempt shortly after the half-hour mark, but Barrett hit back nearly immediately to restore his side's 10-point advantage.

Williams was at the heart of it and that set a theme of the match.

Jack Nowell shifts from the right wing to fullback.

"You can't charge a ball down from the blindside, you have got to go through the standing leg and the potential for injury there is clearly evident", said Schmidt. Soon after, Barrett drew first blood with a straightforward penalty for offside.

Ireland hooker Rory Best will lead the British and Irish Lions for a second time on the tour after being named captain in Warren Gatland's team to play the Wellington Hurricanes on Tuesday.

New Zealand continued on attack with the help of Lions' handling errors and their growing superiority at breakdowns which they cleared out forcefully.


After not having played in nearly two months, captain Kieran Read made an outstanding return.

Then I added in some weather forecasts that suggested there might be favourable conditions for the Lions forwards at Eden Park. The most important score, right now, is 1-0.

At 10 points adrift and struggling to cope with the sheer pace and precision of New Zealand's handling game, alarm bells were ringing for the tourists following an opening quarter that began so brightly but ended with them firmly on the back foot.

"And I thought that was a little bit risky".

Just after the break, the Lions went on the counter-attack after Williams made another impressive break and the Lions created a couple of opportunities early, but failed to finish them off. The Lions are in for another fearsomely tough match. Williams launched another long-distance raid, linking with Davies who beat tackles and with Watson to stretch the All Blacks' defense to its limits.

Sometimes at the top level, it's not about playing pretty rugby, and we've seen the All Blacks be prepared to be pretty physical in the past.

The Lions had expected the All Blacks to attack with a flurry of offloads, cutting lines and adding width and flair.

Another searing break down the left four minutes after the break spoke of the confidence now surging through the Lions and when the All Blacks were penalized close to the line, they elected to kick for the corner.

The attractive aspect of rugby is that through cohesion, organisation and commitment you can negate a team of more talented individuals and win through the collective.
