The All Blacks secured a relatively comfortable 30-15 victory in the first Test at Eden Park, in which they physically dominated the Lions and outscored them three tries to two. The win led many to believe that the series was already a foregone conclusion, given New Zealand had not lost a Test at home since 2009.
That was until the second Test at the Westpac Stadium in Wellington, when a red card for Sonny Bill Williams changed the course of the series. The Lions took full advantage of the extra man to secure a thrilling 24-21 victory and outscore the reigning world champions two tries to nil, setting up the series for a shootout back in Auckland.

The Lions did brilliantly to level the series last week but it must be of concern that New Zealand were able to dominate for long periods despite being down to 14 men. I think the expected dry conditions will suit the All Blacks more than the Lions and while I have little doubt that this will be a close game heading into the final quarter I think that the All Blacks will be able to pull clear and win by a comfortable margin.
