 Lions Vs All Blacks Second Test Highlights

The Lions beat the All Blacks 24-21 at a wet Westpac Stadium in Wellington on Saturday.

It was a thrilling game, a real rollercoaster which saw a crucial moment after just 24 minutes when Sonny Bill Williams was shown a red card for a dangerous shoulder charge on Anthony Watson.

For the next 40 minutes, it looked like the numerical disadvantage would not matter for the All Blacks. Despite Beauden Barrett misfiring with the boot, they led 18-9 after an hour.


The Lions would score two tries in the final 20 minutes though to produce a comeback win. The first try came through Toby Faletau after Anthony Watson found space on the opposite wing and then Farrell and Sexton worked the ball wide to the number eight.

Conor Murray got the second try of the game when he spotted space following a Jamie George break. Owen Farrell kicked the extra points to bring his side level.

As the clocked ticked towards a draw, the All Blacks gave away a crucial penalty for a tackle on Kyle Sinckler.

Farrell would once again step up, this time kicking the Lions into the lead for the first time in the game with just three minutes left on the clock.
