How the Lions rated out of ten in their crucial victory over New Zealand.
LIAM WILLIAMS - 7
A solid night’s work though he was unable ever to break free. Laid on scoring pass for Faletau’s try.
ANTHONY WATSON - 6
A scourge whenever he had ball in hand but struggled for regular action.
JONATHAN DAVIES - 8
One fine break almost saw him scuttle home, another fine effort.
OWEN FARRELL - 8
Imperious showing from England’s composed and gritty playmaker.
ELLIOT DALY - 7
Another to threaten whenever he got the ball but who never saw enough of it.
JOHNNY SEXTON - 7
Had a solid game once he settled into the rhythm of pairing up with Farrell as twin playmakers.
CONOR MURRAY - 8
Showed his class again with a fine try and ran the game expertly as ever.
MAKO VUNIPOLA - 6
Lucky not to be hit with more than a yellow card for needless shoulder charge which blotted his night.
JAMIE GEORGE - 8
Quiet around the field but accurate as you like in the set-piece.
TADHG FURLONG - 7
Scrummaged well under pressure and solid showing.
MARO ITOJE - 6
Conceded far too many penalties and was hugely fortunate to avoid sin-binning for that.
ALUN WYN JONES - 7
A far stronger performance than last week, bound the pack together.
SAM WARBURTON (CAPT) - 8
Led from the front and dragged his men over the line.
SEAN O’BRIEN - 8
Another bullish performance from the one man the All Blacks do not know how to stop when on the charge.
TAULUPE FALETAU - 9
Absolute class from the Lions’ standout performer; so calm under pressure.
JACK MCGRATH (for Vunipola, 65) - 7
Kept his calm at the death to see the Lions home.
KYLE SINCKLER (for Furlong, 60) - 7
Another tidy cameo from the fast-improving Harlequin.
COURTNEY LAWES (for Jones, 58) - 8
Put himself about to huge effect for a fine late turn.
JACK NOWELL (for Watson, 24-31) - 7
One costly mistake for a penalty in brief showing.
UNUSED: K Owens, CJ Stander, R Webb, B Te’o.
