Gavin Hast­ings, Scot­tish cap­tain of the Bri­tish Lions, ad­mit­ted that tears were shed in the dress­ing room af­ter the last-minute 20-18 de­feat by New Zealand in the first rugby test in Christchurch. The Lions be­lieve they were robbed by first and last-minute de­ci­sions from Aus­tralian ref­eree Brian Kin­sey which gifted New Zealand eight points. Hast­ings added: “The huge dis­ap­point­ment of the 15 play­ers was ob­vi­ous when the dress­ing room was to­tally quiet for 30 min­utes af­ter the match.”
