The teams.... Lions unchanged for a Test Match for the first time since 1993


Good morning. We've got ourselves a decider. Eden Park is set it's New Zealand 1-1 British and Irish Lions. Games outside of a World Cup do not get better, Rob Sutton with you.

The Lions won a gripping 2nd Test in Wellington last year, mainly thanks to a red card for Sonny Bill Willams, who is missing tonight. So we've got a decider, the biggest game for one of the home nations since England were in the World Cup Final in 2007.

For the final time on New Zealand soil for 12 years, Sam Warburton leads out the Lions, a sea of red in Auckland, it's almost a home fixture for the Lions.

Kieran Read leads out New Zealand for his 100th cap.

Time for the anthem... the New Zealand equivalent of Will Young doing the singing.

And now for the Haka, which is being done in an arrow-head formation.... fancy.

The flames go off at the conclusion of the Haka... here we go.

Romain Poite from France is our match referee, away we go at Eden Park.

1- Super first kick from Smith and Williams goes into touch, NZ lineout on halfway.
