British & Irish Lions
The first Test at the All Blacks Auckland fortress, Eden Park, where they had not lost a game since 1994, produced one of the greatest tries in Lions history. The match was fairly even heading into halftime, but the All Blacks proved too strong in the second half and broke away to win 30-15.
A must-win second Test lay ahead for the Lions on a rainy night in Wellington. In a match packed with drama, including a red card for Sonny Bill Williams, the Lions were trailing 18-9 with 20 minutes to play. What followed had Lions fans watching in disbelief and delight as two brilliant tries and a late penalty kick from Owen Farrell secured the win and sent the series to a decider.
The final Test back in Auckland is a contest that no rugby fan will ever forget. The All Blacks started the game on fire, scoring two tries in the first half to lead 12-6 at the break. Still, the game was not over and in true Lions fashion they fought their way back to three points behind with just 10 minutes to play. Another Owen Farrell penalty sailed over in the 77th minute to bring them level at 15-15 and ultimately draw a Test series for the first time against New Zealand.
