  • Australia 21 British and Irish Lions 23

  • Beale gets a chance to redeems himself after the Lions front row are penalised for an infringement at a scrum! He steps up to take the kick but slips and his effort is well short of the cross-bar! The Lions allow the ball to roll over the dead ball line and the final whistle goes shortly afterwards! What a thrilling end to an epic Test! The Lions celebrate but spare a though for the home side who could so easily have won this clash!

  • The Wallabies take the ball through several phases with their forwards but lose possession when Horwill knocks on!

  • Beale gets a chance to put his side back in front, after Mako Vuniopla enters a ruck from the side, but his effort sails wide of the posts and the Lions get out of jail!

  • Genia wins the ball at the Lions' scrum and kicks ahead! Folau gathers and it takes a desperate tackle from North to halt his progress close to the halfway line!

  • Digby Ioane is caught in possession by North in front of Australia's try-line! When the maul becomes static it's the Lions who are awarded the put-in at the scrum. Great opportunity to score points!

  • PENALTY, AUSTRALIA, BEALE! 21-23. Beale succeeds with another penalty after Paul O'Connell is pinned for not rolling away at a ruck.

  • Beale makes a devastating run from deep inside his half! He is eventually brought to ground deep inside the Lions' half by Halfpenny!

  • PENALTY, B&I LIONS, HALFPENNY! 18-23. Halfpenny restores the tourists' five-point lead after Ben Mowen is penalised for a ruck infringement.

  • Sexton chips and regathers! He's in the clear but offloads to Dan Cole who goes to the deck after a tackle by two defenders.

  • PENALTY, AUSTRALIA, BEALE! 18-20. Beale narrows the gap to two points after Heaslip is penalised for playing Genia off the ball at a ruck.

  • Phillips is penalised for straying offside at a scrum. Beale puts the ball out midway between the Lions' 22 and the halfway mark.

  • The Lions have an overlap out wide and Croft offloads to O'Driscoll but the pass is forward! That's a luck break for the Wallabies as North was looming on O'Driscoll's outside and would have done more damage if he had gathered that ball.

  • Benn Robinson glides through a gap but loses the ball forward when he tries to offload.

  • Tom Croft carries stronglu but is penalised when he holds onto the ball on the ground. Beale kicks for touch and puts the ball out on the Lions' 10-metre line.

  • PENALTY, AUSTRALIA, O'CONNOR! 15-20. O'Connor steps up and slots a three-pointer after Alex Corbisiero is penalised for a ruck infringement.

  • CONVERSION, B&I LIONS, HALFPENNY! 12-20. Halfpenny succeeds with the easy two-pointer to push his side further in front!

  • TRY, B&I LIONS, CUTHBERT! 12-18. O'Driscoll runs a dummy and Sexton passes to Alex Cuthbert who beats two defenders before scoring his side's second try!

  • The Wallabies take the ball out wide but McCabe knocks on a pass from Stephen Moore. McCabe is tackled by Cuthbert and stays down. The medics are on and he becomes the third Wallaby to be stretchered off! Liam Gill comes on which sees Michael Hooper moving out to the backs.

  • The Wallabies attack on the edge of the Lions' 22 but lose possession when Jamie Heaslip wins a crucial turnover at a ruck.
