Sydney - The British and Irish Lions roared to a record 41-16 victory over the Wallabies to claim their first series win in 16 years in the deciding Test on Saturday.

And Jamie Roberts, a controversial replacement for the dropped O'Driscoll, vindicated Gatland's selection when he arrowed through for the final try with 11 minutes to go.
