The Lions have named an unchanged side ahead of the contest on Saturday:
His side will need to put in an even more Herculean effort than the one that beat New Zealand in Wellington last Saturday if they’re to win. ESPN’s Tom Hamilton demonstrated just how hard they worked to prevent their opponents breaching their line: Their efforts prevented New Zealand from scoring a try for the first time in 39 matches, but they still came close to losing.
New Zealand have not lost at Saturday’s venue Eden Park in Auckland, dating back to 1944, and are still the firm favorites. But will Warren Garland’s Lions be able to take the momentum and beat the odds? Here’s all you need to know about their iconic showdown against All Blacks.
The All Blacks had to play for almost an hour with 14 men after Sonny Bill Williams was sent off, and they still led by nine points with 20 minutes remaining. It could have been a different story if Beau den Barrett, who scored seven penalties because of the Lions’ indiscipline, had not also missed three kicks.
Even in defeat the All Blacks looked deserving of their status as the world’s best, and they’ve not lost at Eden Park since 1994. It’s not beyond the Lions to win, as they showed last time out, but doing so will be a phenomenal achievement and require the performance to match.
If they are to beat the All Blacks again, they will need to give away fewer penalties, and they will also need another outstanding performance from Maro Itoje. Rugby journalist Murray Kinsella hailed his work at the lineout and his all-round excellence: A similar outing from the 22-year-old is a must if the Lions are to win, but it’s no guarantee.
