The greatest British Lions back-line
In the Third Test, the Lions played some exciting rugby. In the first 20 minutes at Wellington, their back division really performed. John Dawes and Mike Gibson at centre. And world-class wings Duckham and Gerald Davies. With the legendary JPR Williams at fullback. In addition, the Gareth Edwards, Barry John combination at half-back. The Lions led 13-0. Barry John dropped a goal in the third minute. Then two wonderful breaks by Edwards. The second led to tries by Gerald Davies and Barry John. Barry John also converted both tries. The All Blacks scored with a try by Laurie Mains. But the score ended 13-3.
Leading 2-1, the Lions went into the final Test in Auckland. But, the All Blacks were eight points up early in the game. But Barry John kicked a penalty. Plus Peter Dixon scored a try from a line-out. Barry John’s conversion made it 8-8 at half-time. He then kicked them into the lead after the break. But, the All Blacks levelled with a try from Tom Lister. Then came the incredible drop goal from JPR Williams, 45 metres out.
Laurie Mains landed an equalising penalty with eight minutes to go. But, it was still 14-14 at the final whistle. And the Lions had won the series.
