New Zealand media attack referee Romain Poite's late penalty U-turn
The massive Romain Poite call that decided the Lions v All Blacks series
12 July, 2017, 00:34
French referee Poite initially awarded a kickable penalty to New Zealand when he deemed replacement Lions hooker Ken Owens to be offside when he touched a restart which had been knocked on by Liam Williams. I think we've had a few things not go our way with injures and stuff not like that, and we haven't quibbled about it.
But he was drawn back to it through further questioning and he may yet have more to say once the game's officials review the Test in the coming days.
"For me, it's just the preparation side and mental side of the game that I took out of this", Laumape told reporters.
Referee Romain Poite made a number of questionable decisions in the 15-all stalemate.
"They just played footy and we were confident that they would do their job", Beauden Barrett said of his two Hurricanes teammates, who he believes are at the embryonic stage of lengthy Test careers. The ref's initial instincts were that it was a penalty, then he spoke to his team of three and one suggested it was accidental.
I must admit I liked the All Blacks supporters better when they fell apart at the prospect of a World Cup knockout game, but now that the team has discovered the cure to choking, they've simply become insufferable. It has been a good series for us, it has put us under a bit of pressure and we have to deal with that mentally.
To gain a sense of how good the Blacks have been under Hansen, you have to consider that not only had he not lost more than one game to another coach going into Saturday's decider against the British and Irish Lions, he had not lost a series.
Barrett produced a consummate performance at fullback in the 15-15 draw at Eden Park, belying those who thought his selection for a first start was a giant risk in such a big game.
But Lions captain Warburton approached Poite and urged him to reconsider his decision.
"You always want to win, but I guess we have done the Lions jersey proud and I am sure people will be looking forward to the next tour in four years' time".
"It was probably the first time in a while I've been that nervous for a game".
I don't quite get that because there wasn't a series victor and in the context of three Tests the All Blacks scored more points and more tries than a Lions squad promoted as being the best to ever be assembled in the professional era.
But the Lions were able to keep in touch thanks to the boot of Owen Farrell and a sweetly struck long-range effort from Elliot Daly.
