Just as it looked like the game might be just slightly slipping away, the Lions exploded into action with Ireland's Sean O'Brien hauling the tourists back into the Eden Park battle.

An early Cody Taylor try put the All Blacks in a commanding 10-0 lead and with the likes of Beauden Barrett turning on the style, the signs were ominous for Warren Gatland's men.

But on 33 minutes, with the score 13-3, Wales' Liam Williams used his lightning pace to make a break from inside his own 22 and linked up with Jonathan Davies who then released Elliot Daly.

O'Brien stormed up in support, received the pass from Daly and barged over the line. Incredible stuff.
