All Blacks, Lions in final rugby Test showdown

  All Blacks, Lions in final rugby Test showdown The British and Irish Lions tour of New Zealand reaches its climax Saturday in the winner-takes-all series decider at Eden Park in Auckland. After the All Blacks won the first Test, and the Lions beat them in the second, the outcome of the series has come down to the third and final Test. The Lions arrived in New Zealand as underdogs, given their record of having won only seven of 40 Tests against the All Blacks since they first toured in 1888, and only once, in 1971, have they won a series. But, in coach Warren Gatland's words, this Saturday at Eden Park is "their chance to make Lions history.

Dustin Martin's AFL Brownlow Medal hopes are in the balance after the Richmond star had an eventful day out against Brisbane.

Martin, the Brownlow second favourite behind Geelong's Patrick Dangerfield, surely banked three votes in Sunday's 16.16 (112) to 12.9 (81) win over the Lions at Etihad Stadium.

After an error-filled first half, Martin was outstanding and he finished with 40 disposals, a whopping 14 clearances and two goals.

All Blacks v Lions: Three minutes that shook the rugby world

  All Blacks v Lions: Three minutes that shook the rugby world The climax of the Lions v All Blacks Test series ended up in unexpected territory - and was one that Kiwi fans will have every right to feel somewhat aggrieved at, writes Jamie Wall.Let's just recap the last three minutes. With the All Blacks up 15-12, the Lions were awarded a penalty 47m out from the sticks. All Black fans exhaled strongly. Owen Farrell wasn't going to miss this. The ice-cold Englishman tantalizingly dropped it just over the bar, right in front of a completely red eastern terrace stand.

But he is also certain to come under match review panel scrutiny following his third-quarter running battle with Lions agitator Nick Robertson.

Robertson went onto Martin, who was running red-hot in the third term, and did everything he could to niggle the Tigers star.

Video shows Robertson clearly kneeing Martin in the back of the leg.

Then came the incident that could cost Martin his Brownlow eligibility.

The camera angle makes the contact unclear, but Martin reaches around from behind and Robertson briefly drops to the ground, holding his face.

There is little doubt that Robertson milked the incident and he played out the match.

Tigers coach Damien Hardwick was unhappy with Robertson's tactics on Martin.

"When you probably get belted in the back 35 times for the game, I reckon it would be fair enough," Hardwick said.

"We got a memo from the AFL saying if you consistently hit someone in the back, it's going to be a free kick - so that's up to the umpires to adjudicate."

Martin had the last laugh at the end of the third term, playing deep and drawing a dubious free kick on Robertson that gifted him a goal.

Robertson also faces certain suspension - just before going onto Martin, he head-butted Richmond captain Trent Cotchin and was reported.

A week after the appalling first half against the Saints, the Tigers were again far from their best and Hardwick said it was a frustrating game at times.

They were also only 23 points ahead at three-quarter time - around the same margin at the same ground a fortnight ago when Brisbane had their boilover win over Essendon.

But unlike the Bombers match, Brisbane were no match for their opposition in the midfield.

Martin was unstoppable after halftime, Cotchin also impressed and after plenty of scrutiny about his form, Dion Prestia had his best game for Richmond.

Prestia restricted Dayne Zorko, who racked up 30 disposals in the Essendon win, to just 11 touches.

While Richmond struggled in attack, the 67-39 inside 50 count their way was too much of an advantage.

Richmond are fifth, a game plus percentage behind third-placed GWS ahead of next Sunday's big game at the MCG.

Young Lions defender Harris Andrews was best afield for much of the first half and while Jack Riewoldt kicked four goals, Andrews finished with a game-high 10 marks.
