Rugby Union – Gatland calls for repeat performance

British and Irish Lions head coach Warren Gatland has decided to name the same side for the final Test against New Zealand that beat the All Blacks 24-21 on Saturday. It will be the first time in 24 years that the Lions have kept the same starting line-up for consecutive Tests. Gatland said: "We felt we should reward the players for the result and the courage that they showed in coming from 18-9 down, digging themselves out of a hole, and then finishing strongly in that last ten to 15 minutes." The Lions are 7/2 with bet365 to win the match at Eden Park while an All Blacks victory is available at 1/5.
