A pulsating draw between the Lions and New Zealand in the third and final Test at Eden Park meant the series also ended 1-1.

And this made for some kinda awkward photos, with captains Sam Warburton and Kieran Read having to collect the Lions series trophy jointly.

Here’s what might have been going through their heads…

“Well, this is weird, eh?!”

“You let go” “No, you” “No, really, you first”

“Guess you’ve got to laugh about it. At least we lifted the trophy up at the same time!”
