TWEETS: The mixed reaction to the drawn test series

TWEETS: The mixed reaction to the drawn test series

With time nearly up on the clock and the scores locked at 15-15 in the series decider, Poite first awarded a penalty to New Zealand after Lions hooker Ken Owens caught the ball in an offside position following a kickoff.

"When you go through all the pressure and emotion of the week, it's all geared toward winning".

Hansen was asked about the amount of handling errors in the opposition 22 which cost them a number of tries: "That's a tribute to the way the Lions are playing", he said.

'As little kids we're taught to take the good with the bad and we've got to do that. We're accepting of whatever decisions are made.

Will we get an explanation from Garces, Poite or World Rugby? In fairness to Sam, he was able to talk the ref into an accidental offside.

'We all know what happened and what should have happened but at the end of the day it's a game, ' said Hansen. He continued: "Whether it was his Wayne Barnes moment it remains to be seen", referencing the Englishman in charge of the All Blacks' defeat to the France in the 2007 World Cup quarter-finals, a referee whom the Herald has previously called "the man who destroyed a nation". We have a deal about the offside from 16.

We play for a scrum.

To gain a sense of how good the Blacks have been under Hansen, you have to consider that not only had he not lost more than one game to another coach going into Saturday's decider against the British and Irish Lions, he had not lost a series.

The third-round match was suspended Friday by darkness after 2 hours, 54 minutes with Querrey leading 6-5 in the fifth set. During that breakthrough season, Kerber won her first two major titles, at the Australian Open and U.S.

"You can either look at is and say we did alright, or say we didn't do what we wanted to do, but we didn't lose the thing either".

The series will go down as a success, but the grand finale ended with a damp squib.

"I thought a draw was a fair result".

"It's been a special series to play in", said Lions captain Sam Warburton. "We had plenty of chances to win the game ourselves". It would have made for an unbelievable climax.

I don't quite get that because there wasn't a series victor and in the context of three Tests the All Blacks scored more points and more tries than a Lions squad promoted as being the best to ever be assembled in the professional era.

It wasn't to be and the man in the middle bore the brunt of the frustration with the lack of a clear outcome.

Owen Farrell kicked a decisive, late penalty for the second week in succession as the Lions became the first side to deny New Zealand victory at Eden Park since 1994.
