British & Irish Lions look to create history vs NZ
Eden Park, Auckland
Saturday, 8 July
Where it stands
Here we are. The 3rd & final test is here & Lions will be the underdogs here. After what happened last weekend, the Lions will be roaring & will want to repeat it here too.
For the New Zealand team, they have been unbeaten at Eden Park since 23 years & will like to keep that record intact.
Lions captain Sam Warburton, aged 28 had missed the series-clinching 3rd Test win over Australia in 2013 owing to injury.
He missed 6 weeks at the end of the domestic season with a knee injury & suffered a fractured cheekbone last year. 1st test also, he missed due to ankle knock.
The Lions were taken apart in 1st test but came strong in 2nd test.
If they win, they can achieve a 1st series win in New Zealand since 1971.
4 – Number of tries scored by the Lions in the Test series, compared to 3 by the hosts.
19 – Number of years since the All Blacks lost 2 times in a row at home
