Lions face almighty battle in series decider – Gatland

Warren Gatland shakes hands with a Lions fan

The Lions should expect a ferocious response from the All Blacks when they meet in the decisive third and final Test in Auckland next Saturday, says head coach Warren Gatland.

The tourists won 24-21 in Wellington on Saturday to level the series at 1-1.

“We know what New Zealand teams are like when they lose. We’re in for an almighty battle but we’ve got belief and confidence,” said Gatland.
