All Blacks coach Steve Hansen says Lions have to start winning

"The hosts have not been beaten once this season", said their man on the ground, "so this win will be a real boost for the Lions who mis-fired in their opening two games". That's been challenging for all of us.

"Touring with the Lions is very tough and a test of character". I have been hammered by the New Zealand media as well so it has been a targeted campaign against me personally. "As players we know we are good enough too adapt to each other".

As he approaches the best years of his career, Owen Farrell brings a calmness and control to proceedings as well as his natural aggression and physicality.

Owen Farrell booted all 12 points, kicking four of five penalties - although the England fly-half was unlucky with the "miss" that flew over the top of a post and was judged wide.

Gatland believes the Lions can now push their tour onto new levels after securing a hugely-important and morale-boosting victory.

"The front row [including Jack McGrath] coming off the bench were excellent. we lost two of our backs in the first half - Stuart Hogg and Jonathan Davies - and we had to react to that".

Warren Gatland intends to give Sam Warburton some minutes against Highlanders on Tuesday after sitting out the past two games with an ankle injury.

"They are a very competitive outfit, very aggressive on opposition ball", said Rowntree.

"But I'm really pleased, more with the result than the performance".

"For that to happen, he's caught Conor Murray's elbow, that was a bit unlucky in that situation". They have six internationals in that pack so we knew it would be a tasty game. The Lions probably don't have much confidence, because they still haven't got it together.

"The Crusaders kicked a lot to us and the pleasing thing for us is we kept our composure and didn't give them an opportunity to score a try through a turnover".

Lock Luke Romano vows the All Blacks will be able to quickly adjust to the French referees' policing of the scrum after some "frustrating" rulings in the Crusaders' loss to the British and Irish Lions.

Canterbury District Commander Superintendent John Price said the couple had recorded the numbers of the stolen tickets, and Police were pursuing several avenues of inquiry.

"They just found a way to win".

"With Super Rugby refs, we're allowed to lean and be pre-engaged and the ref tonight, he didn't want that and that's a northern hemisphere ref, and so we were finding it hard to adjust to that".

The tourists also upped their intensity on defence, shutting down the Crusaders attacking options with their fast line speed and forcing them into mistakes.

"We thought they were going to play that way and that's exactly how they did play". "Jordie has been in outstanding form, he has a skill set which is complete and has a great running and kicking game".
