Poite will be firm and clear - which could help Lions

"They can go and play and relax".

Burrow hopes his choir won't be sung out by the time the game starts.

"I've no problem with the lads having a few beers, but there's no need to promote it to the world".

Steve Hansen (New Zealand): "Is the Lions series usually significant?" That said, dropping a forward from the lineout would reduce the effectiveness of the competition out of touch. Referees can make 2,000 decisions in a game and Romain knows the rugby world will be watching him.

It is bubbling nicely.

But we aren't getting ahead of ourselves, we know we won against 14 men and we made things tough for ourselves at the start of the second half. But there is a real buzz around this game.

There are some involved with English clubs who see the Lions as an anachronism, a reminder of a time when the game was amateur and players had far greater freedom.

Davies is not the only Welsh player to achieve a notable milestone on this Lions tour.

If they are to beat the All Blacks again, they will need to give away fewer penalties, and they will also need another outstanding performance from Maro Itoje.

"When you train with that quality all the time, hopefully some of that rubs off on you".

They have upset the All Black apple cart. He has played it masterfully. They'll have to act as streak-busters again though, as the ABs haven't lost in Auckland since 1994.

"The All Black captaincy is something that's pretty special to me, I certainly respect it and want to honour it as best I can", Read said. Hansen backed this up by saying, "Is the Lions Series hugely significant?"

"He's just relaxed. Even in the last six weeks, he's been relaxed and chilled".

"I don't think we played all that well on the day and Barry John missed a couple of kicks that he would usually have got without any effort. What we're doing is playing a game of rugby".

Gatland already has the satisfaction of being the first head coach to beat the All Blacks on home soil since 2009, when Peter de Villiers' South African side won in Hamilton.

While going through the 1974 tour unbeaten was a huge high, being part of the only Lions team to win a series in New Zealand three years earlier remains one of his greatest achievements in one of the game's greatest playing careers.

It has been 23 years since New Zealand last lost on the hallowed Eden Park turf and they will do their utmost to ensure that record extends against a spirited Lions side.

But Johnny Sexton doesn't see it that way. It's why you do all those hours of preparation, because you want those big moments in sport. "We just wanted to congratulate him". There's nothing better than a decider as a top sportsman.

But Lions and Wales head coach Gatland has made no plans for his future - and even quipped he could retire from coaching after the next World Cup. Things are changing all the time on social media and all that stuff.

His younger brother Jordie has been elevated to the starting line-up for the biggest match of his young career, and has been doing the goal kicking for the Hurricanes all season. "You are hearing one side of it or reading one side of it, but that is not reflective of what I have been experiencing here as a coach and as a person". Phew, back to reality. A break was not what they needed but was precisely what the Lions did require.

I asked him what his emotions were. "We've got some plays up our sleeve that we've continually worked off the field in terms of the pictures and shapes we've seen defensively from the All Blacks", he said. Prancing about in a short skirt, midriff showing and violently shaking pom poms (no pun intended) never appealed to me in any facet of life.
