Yes, the All Blacks were pushed but only in parts and parts simply isn’t going to cut it against this champion rugby team. 30-15 flattened the Lions, who scored one of the best test tries in recent memory but lacked the ability to finish at key times. If you can’t take your chances you won’t win a game of rugby against New Zealand. Potential doesn’t pay the bills.

the breakdown and once their scrum got smashed 15 minutes into the second half and the game was over. Yes it was competitive but only in patches and only based on this dominant period of All Black rugby. I hope the home team wins this year’s series 3-0 and I maintain that’s how it will go. The Lions had all the momentum, 70 percent of the supporters in Eden Park and they bottled their chance. The All Blacks suffered injuries to key players Ben Smith and Ryan Crotty and still won by 15 points. At some point there must be a realisation that we are witnessing the most golden of eras of New Zealand rugby. Who knows when the golden goose will stop laying the eggs but this is View the Wainuiomata News an era worth enjoying.
