It is all about interpretation.
"It strikes me as being typical of far too much of what we have seen of the Lions so far - teams and tactics selected according to the opposition, rather than playing on their terms".
And when Dan Cole came on to the field, television match official (TMO) Marius Jonker told Gardner via the radio link to watch the replacement tighthead's binding.
"I think Jared grew into the game", said Henshaw. Up stepped Banks who held his nerve to nail a penalty that gave the Highlanders the win.
"There is no doubt they got some ascendancy in the second scrum penalty, and they have got on top of us". It just crept in but the decision's made and that's how it is - you've just got to get on with it'. It's a macho position to play in.
With the Lions seven points behind, they needed some inspiration on the half-hour mark and Bath's flying centre Joseph provided just that. "It gives me a great chance to try to do that".
"I was idolising Dan Carter in 2005 when he ran amok against them for the All Blacks in Wellington", he said. We can't let teams back in that easy, simple as.
"That was such a long time coming and it was a childhood dream to win that".
"That conversation put things in perspective for me.
The big (lesson) is that New Zealand sides play for 80 minutes".
It all depends how the game, and the scrum, is refereed.
The Six Nations player of the tournament in each of the last two seasons suffered a fractured eye socket against the Crusaders after colliding with teammate Conor Murray.
"We were inaccurate at times, they kicked the ball quite smartly to put us under pressure".
"He was in fantastic form leading up to the World Cup before he got injured and he's obviously had a year out and done a lot of work to get back", said Jenkins.
You let go of the handbrake when you're going down a hill and the vehicle moves forward. "We got penalised rightly so for the one that they kicked but there was another couple where their prop was on their knees and stuff and all you are really looking for is a bit of consistency and I am not sure we necessarily got it".
"It's a tricky one but at the end of the day, there [were] no penalties conceded in the scrum for the whole game but then a whole new front row comes on and the scrum collapses and the referee gives the penalty straight away", Sinckler said.
A poor kicking option from the current All Blacks squad member saw Tommy Seymour pluck the ball out of the air and score a runaway try on 43 minutes, before his wayward pass 10 minutes later gifted the tourists a scrum metres out from the line, which they quickly turned into a Sam Warburton try.
They placed themselves on the front foot through varying their attack in the face of the the Lions' aggression. "I had to aim inside the posts, which is a bit different for me". The New Zealand sides will be very quick to pick up on any trends, whether on defence or attack, as the tour unfolds. Featuring the legendary Sonny Bill Williams and coached by Tana Umaga (infamous spear tackler of Brian O'Driscoll back in 2005), Blues showed a cutting edge that the British and Irish Lions were lacking.
Instead, the tourists took a step backwards and some of the touring party blew what chance they may have had of making the team for the opening test.
